Winter market in Jokkmokk 2016
An unbroken tradition with a more than 400 year old history. Today the Sámi winter market in Jokkmokk is a genuine folk festival that is annually visited by tens of thousands of people. In addition to the market square trade going on for three intensive days from February 4 to 6 there are also lectures, concerts, and other exciting events going on in central Jokkmokk. The theme for 2016 is ” Midwinter on the Arctic Circle ” and the inauguration takes place February 3, at 17:30.
The Sámi company Nutti Sámi Siida organizes a cultural trip to Jokkmokk Market from January 31 to February 7. It is magical and special to come up to the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland in winter to experience Sámi culture and fantastic excursions, taste local food, feel the dry cold air and wander around at Jokkmokk Market in the company of a knowledgeable guide.
