Arjeplog is a vast area in southwest Swedish Lapland, comprised of mountains, lakes and forests, bordering Norway. A paradise of snow, ice, water, midnight sun and northern lights.
The people of Arjeplog are known for their friendly demeanor, helpful attitude and excellent hostmanship. That is partly because Arjeplog is the world’s leading ice driving destination, and has been since the 1970’s. Therefore, Arjeplog has a long tradition of welcoming foreign visitors.
The Arjeplog area is ten times the size of London, but only 2 800 people live here year round. As you can probably imagine, Arjeplog offers a wide range of experiences in nature. The mountains and nearly 9000 lakes attract fishing enthusiasts, hikers, trail runners and those who simply wish to disconnect from the world for a while and recharge in nature.
Arjeplog has been shaped by human life for 10 000 years, and the Sámi indigenous population and it’s reindeer herding is an important part of our culture. Silvermuseet, the silver museum, holds the world’s largest collection of Sámi silver, and unique archeological objects that have been found in the Arjeplog area.
Feel free to read our brochure Good to Know for Temporary Visitors, that we have produced in collaboration with 5 other destinations along the Skellefte River. In it, you will find practical information for before and during your stay, and you will learn more about our nature and other practical details.
