Arjeplog is one of Sweden’s most touristic municipalities and the most international destination within Swedish Lapland.
In summer everything here is very different from winter. Our rounded mountains are perfect for day hikes, mountain biking or trail running. We have more than 2 500 kilometers of trails and tracks.
We have several associations regarding sports, music, culture, and much more.
The biggest employers here are governmental employment, municipality employment, vehicle test, construction work, and tourism. We have an unusually enterprising population and low unemployment.
The primary school has been named Sweden’s best primary school district two years in a row.
Arjeplog has worked with vehicle and component tests for 50 years and is today the largest in the world for testing in cold climates. It is a unique cluster that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Also unique is the collaboration that has been built up between the various companies in important development issues. The industry also collaborates with Luleå University of Technology and other development actors.
