We work through personal contact with other companies to offer you the best package, after your stay we will follow up to hear about your experience. This is to keep the high standard we want to offer all our guests.

So here we will list some activities we like and think are extra interesting for this area:
  • Discovering the wildlife on your own
    • This can be done all year around but we recommend summer, autumn and winter. Spring is the time when the new generation is born so than we should not disturb. 
    • You can discover protected forests, bird and other wildlife areas. Ask us if there is anything in particular you are interested to see. 
  • Hiking
    • Here we have short & easy tours for beginners and more advanced stretches for the experienced hikers. 
    • The mountains are covered in snow until end of June and somtimes longer and in August/September we can have minus degrees, ask us if you are unsure what gears to bring. 
  • Ski
    • Arjeplog offer the possibilities for downhill ski and crosscountry ski. There is several tracks for crosscountry skiing and of course you can use the marked snowmobile trails as well if you want to go further. For the downhill skiers we have two different slopesystems and for the adventoures ones we recommend HeliSki (see below). 
  • Helicopter tours
    • Arjeplog is a huge area with a small amount of people, this means that big parts are not reachable by car. So to fully experience this region we recommend a helicopter tour, as sightseeing or as a drop off where you hike/ski back to civilisation. 
    • HeliSki, take with your down hill skis or snowboard and fly up on the mountain peak and slide down in untouched snow
  • Snowmobile
    • If you like machines you have to make a snowmobile tour! This is a completly different driving experience than anything you have tried before. You need to plan your driving and balance your weight to get through the trails. This is also a perfect activity for those who want to come further on a short time than with for example dogsledding.
  • Fishing
    • The big number of lakes gives a lot of possibilities for catching fish. In the mountains you can catch arctic char in the cold waters,  in the other lakes we have big pikes and inbetween in the more streaming waters you can often catch graylings!
  • History
    • Here we have a institute for subarctical landscape resreach, an center for archaeology and the history & heritage of Arjeplog. 
    • Arjeplog is a region originally inhabited by hunters and gatherers, eventually the cultural differences splitted the group of people living here and the Sami culture was born. The Samis started to domesticate and herd reindeers, reindeers still live wild but every reindeer in Sweden is owned by the Samis. This is not to mix up with livestock.
    • To learn about this indigenous people and culture there is a museeum and a location where you can meet a sami family and some of their reindeers. 
  • Geology and Mining
    • Arjeplog have a quite long history with mining. During two short periods we had a silver mine in the mountain region and in modern time we had a lead mine
