Explore Jokkmokk above the Arctic circle and visit Jokkmokk Wintermarket 2020

Jokkmokk Wintermarket

In the beginning of the 17th century the Swedish king wanted to control the northern territories and saw this as an excellent opportunity to establish a permanent market place to be able to draw taxes from the people. The market is still a yearly event and has developed to one of Northern Europe’s major public festival including the marketplace, exhibitions and lectures about the Sami people and the life in the north.

More information about the market can be found at: https://www.jokkmokksmarknad.se/


We offer two different adventure packages during the winter market, filled with activities and experiences of both the market and nature and cultural life. In small groups we let you discover the Sami culture, the beautiful winter light, exciting dining experiences and the fantastic nature. You will experience the feeling of gliding through snow-covered forests with dog sled, and enjoying the expectant atmosphere of the marketplace. We will guide you through a complete and memorable collection of experiences of the Jokkmokk winter market, northern Sweden’s largest winter event. During your days in Jokkmokk you will stay in a double room at Hotel Akerlund, centrally located in Jokkmokk. The hotel has a history that stretches back over a hundred years, but at the same time modern rooms and access to the sauna and relax. Breakfast and dinner will be served at the hotel. Lunch is either part of your activities or purchased on your own in the market (see program for details). The various activities are carried out in smaller groups (max 8 people), but for the dinners and evening activities the whole group will be together. Please let us know when booking if you are traveling with friends, family or both and so we can make sure you end up in the same group. We partner with local activity companies who have good knowledge of the culture and history of the area. You will also have a host with good local knowledge, who will help you book optional activities and recommend things to do on your own.
