Ájtte Museum in Jokkmokk – the Sami centre
Jokkmokk, just north of the Arctic Circle, has always been an obvious meeting place for trade, gatherings, festivals and meetings between friends from far and near. This is the site of Ájtte, Swedish Mountain and Sami Museum, a gateway to the high mountains, to Laponia and to the Sami culture. Here, we tell the
story of Sápmi, the land and the people, of life and survival in a
demanding climate and environment. It is a story set in the
wetlands, forests and mountains.
