In small groups you will experience dog sledding and searching for the northern light in a wintry landscape outside Jokkmokk. Experience the Sami culture with a local reindeer herding family, meet their reindeers and listen to stories around the fire.
Already over 400 years ago people in the north gathered around Jokkmokk to trade fur, silver and other necessities. In the winter, the lakes where frozen and it was easy for merchants to travel longer distances. 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. Jokkmokk winter market is still a yearly event and has developed to a festival including both the market place and different winter activities.
