Jakobsbakken is a former mining village by the entrance to "the last great wilderness" in Europe - the UNESCO World Heritage Area of Laponia. At Jakobsbakken Mountain Resort you will explore one of the largest untouched wilderness areas in Europe. You will get close to nature and close to the locals. As hosts and 4th generation owners, we will wish you welcome to Jakobsbakken, which have long traditions back to the 1800s.
Join a true Arctic Adventure, where you can experience snowstorms, northern lights, the polar lights, and the Arctic wilderness. Explore the Sami culture, the history of the former mining community, and try local food with ingredients from the mountains. Our main goal when you visit us is that you feel "like home".
Every evening we´ll go outside and look for the northern lights.
Lie in the snow and become one with nature, while the only thing you hear is your own pulse and the wind blowing. The clean air and the sound of silence that nature here can give you is therapy for both body and mind. Feel the proximity to nature and see the wildlife like reindeer, grouse, and fox close up.
Whether you want to try dog sledding, go snowshoeing to ice fishing waters or take a ski trip in cross-country skiing trails with World Cup standard, the beautiful mining town above the Arctic Circle is the right place for you.
