Hotel Akerlund

Top choice hotel in Jokkmokk
Image by

This pleasant central hotel rises above a slightly shabby outward appearance – it's coming up to 100 years as an inn – by having a very sharp lobby and rooms. After changing ownership and its name (formerly Hotel Gästis) in 2015, it underwent extensive renovations and is a top place to stay. The attached restaurant is shaped like a Sami kåta (hut).
