ARJEPLOG Arjeplog is a wild, welcoming and wonderful place in western Swedish Lapland with mountain ranges, a border to Norway and the Arctic Circle cutting straight through the region.
IN MOUNTAINS & OVER WATERS
Sweden’s deepest lake, Lake Hornavan, is on display from the moment you arrive. The easily accessible footbridges, crossing the waters of the Arjeplog streams can be reached with a short walk. The spectacular view from the peak of the Galtispouda mountain can be reached by car in just a few minutes. If you go by helicopter out into the mountains, there are well-renowned facilities making sure that you are never far away from amenities, even while finding your way along roads less travelled.
The water of the three rivers and nearly nine thousand lakes is clean and pure enough for you to drink, wherever in Arjeplog you might find yourself, and the light of the midnight sun makes the days last forever.
COLD CLIMATE, WARM ATMOSPHERE
Arjeplog has had human inhabitants for the last 10 000 years. From Stone Age trapping cultures to high-tech vehicle testing in the 21st century, Arjeplog’s residents have always been open to new technology, refining it and finding new ways to greet the future. The collections at the Silver Museum tell many stories about life in the olden days, allowing the people and the history to live on.
In the winter, Arjeplog is the international centre for cold climate car testing, and this is evident all year round; the atmosphere is international and there is great hospitality. Arjeplog is characterised by a very particular kind of hospitality, a warmth between people. Regardless of whether you come here to fish for trout in a crystal clear mountain lake, to experience the Sámi culture, to walk new trails or to stay in a cottage surrounded by nature’s splendour, you will meet welcoming people and experience truly heartwarming hospitality.
PARTNERING UP WITH THE WATERS
Arjeplog’s mountain archipelago is a place like no other. Historically, the system of waterways provided an important means of transportation for travellers and goods. The currents powered mills, forges, smelters, sawmills and provided cooling water when making brännvin, a hard liquor. Nowadays, the ice is used for extensive testing and leisure racing tracks for cars, while the summer landscape is a popular playground for many activities.
Fishing is, of course, popular, but the waters also offer long kayak and canoe routes, partial goals on your hike or an inviting midnight sun swim after a relaxing bath in a wood-heated sauna. Some waters are so remote that a helicopter is the best option for reaching them. Other streams are accessible enough for prams, wheelchairs and other wheel-borne visitors.
Regardless of whether you are out on the water or up on a hill or mountain top between two lakes, there is a good chance that you can see all the way to Norway. One thing is certain; you can spend a long time here without ever having to look out over the same water twice. Welcome to a truly wild and wonderful lifestyle!
