Welcome to Jokkmokk - cultured, wild and beautifulThe District of Jokkmokk is located at the Arctic Circle and is Sweden’s next largest district in size. The total surface is 19 474 km². Half of this area consists of an extensive mountain region where you can get all the adventure you want. There are national parks and a number of nature reserves. The national parks are Sarek, Padjelanta, Stora Sjöfallet and Muddus and they belong to the Laponia area, which in December 1996 UNESCO nominated one of the earth's World Heritage sites. Laponia was chosen as a combined nature and cultural heritage, which is unusual because normally a World Heritage is either chosen for its nature or culture.
This is the heart of Lapland and it is easy to reach. Daily buses travel to Luleå and Gällivare, as well as to the train stations of Murjek, Gällivare and Boden. During the summer the inland train line also operates.
