Introducing Jokkmokk

The capital of Sami culture, and the biggest handicraft centre in Lappland, Jokkmokk (Dálvaddis, in Sami) has not only the definitive Sami museum but is also the site of a huge annual winter market gathering. Just north of the Arctic Circle, it’s the only town in Sweden which has a further education college that teaches reindeer husbandry, craft-making and ecology using the Sami language. Jokkmokk is the jumping-off point for visiting the four national parks which are part of the Laponia World Heritage Area and it makes a great base for all manner of outdoor adventures year-round.
