This village is about 900m from the Ice Hotel. You can walk with no difficulties. Wide sidewalk on both sides of the road.

It was an expensive sandwich but worth the fun of eating in the t pee and having our reindeer sandwich cooked over the open fire in front of us.

The museum is really neat and I love their gift shop. The best part is getting to hang out with the reindeer - they are so cute! A great experience for anyone visiting the area.

A must-see place in Jukkasjärvi. We enjoyed meeting reindeers, tasty food, our kids were happy for making hot-dogs on an open fire. It was interesting to read about Saami and to see how they lived.

This was one of our favorite experiences. The outdoor museum is sweet and informative, but the shining star is the interaction with the reindeer. You can buy lichen to feed them, and they come right up to you to get their treats. Great for the...More
