While you are here, check out Lappkyrka. Another place to visit is Ajtte Museum.
Of course, there's so much more to Norrbotten than just Jokkmokk, so schedule in some time to explore the region's attractions. Vuollerim and Muddus National Park are just two of the many other places you may wish to visit while you're in Norrbotten.
Around 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northeast of Jokkmokk is Gallivare, a regional center which is home to Gallivare-Malmbergets Golf Club, Fjallnas Castle and Dundret Ski Resort. Sarek National Park, Mount Dundret and Lappkyrkan Church are just a few of the other visitor attractions in Gallivare.
Visit Norrbotten 's historic traditional villages, it's a good way to explore the region's fascinating past.
Why not check out some wintersports while you are in this interesting region? Skiing is an idea. Another possibility is cross-country skiing.
True travel involves so much more than simply seeing the sights, it's also about the poetry, song and story of a region. Your experience in Norrbotten will become much more meaningful if you make the effort to memorize some useful words and phrases in Swedish. "Vill du dansa med mig?" is handy. It means "Would you like to dance with me?" You'll find that using "Varifrån kommer du?", which translates to "Where are you from?", can be a good conservation starter.
When it's time to leave this special part of the world, say a fond Hej då (farewell) to the characters you have met and the landscapes you've seen.
