Open your senses and travel to the land of the Midnight Sun and the Sami. You will find the people, handicrafts and history and you will be able to listen to amazing stories about love of the reindeer, a hard life and ancient traditions that are still alive and practised.
Båtsuoj Sami Centre is one of the many nuggets of gold that await you on the journey.
Day 1 - Arrival in Östersund
You make your own travel arrangements to Östersund, where your package tour begins with an overnight stay. If you need help with connecting trains, please let us know when making your reservation. Östersund is beautifully located by lake Storsjön, where you might catch a glimpse of the famous lake monster.
Day 2 - Östersund
Look forward to a whole day of new experiences in Östersund. If you want to find out about Sami culture at this stage of the journey, pay a visit to the museum Jamtli and perhaps the handicraft shop Gaupa. In the afternoon you will meet the city’s own cicerone, who will take you on a food walk in the restaurant quarters and tell you about Swedish feast- and pub life. You will enjoy five courses on five different restaurants, including cheese- and chocolate tasting.
The day begins with a short walk by foot around the centre of Arjeplog, and you will be told the story of Arjeplog today among some historical glimpses. After that you will visit the Silvermuseum, where the Sami silver is glimmering in the Silver hall’s blue vault and where lunch is included. The travel back to Inlandsbanan will go via Galtispuoda mountain where you a day with clear skies see 140 km, 360 degrees. The views are magnificent and camera is highly recommended. Shortly before reaching Jokkmokk you will cross the Arctic Circle – the border of the Land of the Midnight Sun.
DAy 5 - JOKKMOKK - Gällivare
In Jokkmokk you have nearly a full day to visit attractions such as a taste performance.

After you can visit the Swedish Mountain and Sami Museum Ájtte (entry included) and Jokkmokk Alpine Garden, where you can study the mountain flora. The journey continues in the evening through the national park area and the World Heritage Site Laponia.
