Gällivare In the small Arctic town of Gällivare, nature is a part of everyday life. The forests, mountains and wild rivers are right around the corner and lets you experience the genuine Arctic lifestyle...
Imagine a winter wonderland with snow up to six months a year. Enjoy the snow-covered landscape from a horse carriage or let the huskies take you far out into the magnificent Laponia world heritage site. If the conditions are right, you might see the northern lights dance over the sky while marvelling at the complete silence that surrounds you.
In the mountains of Laponia
In the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Laponia, you enter a completely different world. There are nine Sami communities and four national parks with pristine forests, wetlands, deep valleys, powerful mountain massifs and glaciers. Laponia is also the home and workplace of the Sami people and has been so for thousands of years. Still, there are very little traces of mankind in the area. In Laponia the experiences are unforgettable whether you are skiing in the winter or hiking in the summer. Nature here is accessible and suitable for both the experienced adventurer and beginners.
A genuine culture experience
The culture in Gällivare is completely unique. The people live in symbiosis with nature and nature experiences are part of everyday life. When you visit Gällivare you will learn more about the thousand-year history of the Sami and about the Arctic lifestyle.
