Jokkmokk Winter Market

The Sami meet once a year in their cultural Capital Jokkmokk for bargaining and partying.

In 1605 the first official Sami market was held in Jokkmokk, Sweden. It begins on the first Thursday in February and ends on the following Saturday. This makes this market one of the oldest in the world. At minus 15 degrees people dance, sing, trade and eat. Over 50 exhibitors are present from all over northern Sweden.

Tuesday -  Snowshoe Tour

After an unforgettable night in the northern light house, we start the day with a hearty breakfast. Afterwards we get ready for an unforgettable snowshoe tour through the snowy forests and frozen lakes. If you wish, our sled dogs will accompany you. We will cook our lunch together on the fire on the way. We continue through the vastness of Lapland back to the camp ofHey Lapland. Afterwards you are welcome to relax in the sauna and enjoy the day Think about it again. There is sure to be a lot of exciting things to tell at dinner.

3rd day

Wednesday -  Ice Fishing

Today we will focus on fishing. We will try our luck on a frozen lake, because ice fishing is more than just sitting staring into a hole for hours. It's about much more. Was the ice hole drilled in the right place? Has the right bait been selected? Even during a biting lull we don't give up immediately, but philosophize about the (huge) fish under the ice sheet. An experience that will surely be remembered. If we are successful, we will prepare the fish in the evening and roast it over the fire.

4th day

Thursday -  Jokkmok Winter Market

We leave early in the morning and drive towards Jokkmokk. On the way we make a detour to Storforsen, one of the largest rapids in Scandinavia. Then the journey continues to Jokkmokk to the Sami winter market. There you can organize your day according to your wishes. In the evening we drive back to our home with many impressions. After dinner, you can relax in the sauna if you wish, before you climb back into the Northern Lights House and, with a bit of luck, marvel at the Northern Lights from your bed.
