Jokkmokk has a Sami heritage we care about and gladly inform and show up for visitors. At Ájtte Museum, the Sami story tells, but also the history of the settlers, how it was living and living in the villages north of the circle of poles. In the small community there are small and unique stores with such as Stoorstålka, Sisters Viltok, Lappkassen and many more. Since 1606, Jokkmokk’s market has been celebrated annually on the first Thursday in February.
Jokkmokk also has a particularly beautiful arctic nature, with places like the Rapadalen and Pärlälven, showing the Arctic nature from its best side. For those who want to wander in the mountains there are many nice options and have not walked before, we recommend the Kvikkjokks and Saltoluokta area which show spectacular views. For the more experienced hiker, the National Parks Sarek and Bádjelándda invite a memorial to life.
As a complement to our beautiful nature and our rich Sami culture, there are several locally produced products. Here are local crafts and locally produced foods such as. dried reindeer meat, berries and herbs.
