Jokkmokk Winter Market with its Sami culture, art and handicraft is a memorable and exciting experience in itself. But there’s a lot more to discover and experience in Jokkmokk. Dog sled tours, ice fishing and hunting, ski tours, horse riding, snow mobile safari are just a few of the winter activities to enjoy during market days in Jokkmokk.
Being in Jokkmokk during winter also gives the best chances of seeing the aurora borealis dance across the sky. Dressed up in warm winter clothing, sometimes in a freezing -40 ℃, northern lights hunting presents a thrilling once-in-a-life time experience deep in the wilderness of Swedish Lapland.
Long after the joyful days of Jokkmokk Winter Market are gone and life in Jokkmokk has taken its usual course, excitement is raising again. It’s time for the longest and toughest cross country ski contest in the world – the Nordenskiöldsloppet.
History goes back to 1884 when Adolf Erik Nordenskiöld organized a ski competition ¨between Jokkmokk and Kvikkjokk¨. There were 18 participants and the winner was the local Sami Pava Lars Nilsson Tuorda.
In modern times the race takes place in March/April each year and starts at Purkijaur just outside Jokkmokk. In the span of 220 km through the wilderness of Swedish Lapland the track runs through Randijaur, Granudden, and Njavve, among others, before it reaches the turning point at Kvikkjokk.

What Our Customers Say
Thank you very much for having organised accommodation for us … when we visited Jokkmokk for the Winter Market.
We had a really great time at Jokkmokk Winter Market, joining the candlelit procession from the Historic Market Place where we were asked to carry one of the candles, so Barr ended up on the Snow Stage with all the other candle holders for the official opening of the Market. What a wonderful museum the Attje is. We did lots of things in Jokkmokk, including the reindeer racing, and the Sami Adult Education Centre etc etc. The highlight for us was the dog sleigh ride on the last evening. A memorable few days.
Thank you for making it possible by finding accommodation for us.
