Welcome to Jakobsbakken in Sulitjelma, an old mining town with stunning buildings dating back to the mining industry from the late 1800s.
Do you want to make angels in the snow, run around in snowshoes, try ice-water fishing, or go cross-country skiing in tracks with World Cup standards? Starting from Jakobsbakken, we offer you a true winter experience on historical grounds in the Arctic mountains.
Our guides will help with your equipment and instruct you on how to use them. Sledging, skiing, or snowshoeing in the vicinity of Jakobsbakken...you choose what you want to try.
Experience incredibly scenic walks in untouched nature, where you can walk for hours without meeting a single person. You will get close to nature in the Arctic mountains, and maybe even get the opportunity to see wildlife, including reindeer, grouse, and foxes, close up.
From September to April there are also good opportunities to see the Aurora Borealis from this beautiful mining town above the polar circle. Here, we can offer an unforgettable Aurora Borealis chase. Due to the area's limited light pollution, stunning views of the Northern Lights can be seen dancing over the Arctic mountains.
