Description

Live life in the present! This is the motto of Jokkmokk Winter Market which is held annually in early February. Jokkmokk’s Market is the perfect occasion in which to be exposed to all kinds of handicraft, including newly created designs, made by the Sámi people native to the artic regions of Scandinavia. The Sámi profile is important for the market. Their culture and traditions, art and handicraft and music attract people. The reindeer caravan is a yearly cultural happening as well as the reindeer festival. Other things on the program are the reindeer race, the reindeer taxi, tasting reindeer meat delicacies, multi-media shows and much more. The atmosphere is always positive, open and familiar and even though it may be cold, you will be met with warm smiles! You can look forward to market days full of cultural happenings from morning to night. Undoubtedly you will find many things to buy so leave space in your luggage.
