Drive Umeå to Jokkmokk

Touring Routes of Sweden

Located just above the Arctic Circle in Lapland, it is a place steeped in Sami culture and while very popular in winter, especially early February when the winter markets are on, it is also a place that delights in Summer. Famous for its winter markets, Jokkmokk (Lule Sámi: Jåhkåmåhkke or Dálvvadis; Northern Sámi: Dálvvadis), is a place that should be high on any travellers list of places to see in Northern Sweden.

The drive from Umeå, the biggest city in Norrland, takes you along majestic rivers and lakes to the west before heading north along the Inlandsvägen (The Inland Road) to Jokkmokk.

Nearby, well 100kms actually, is Kvikkjokk which is a magnificent drive through remote wilderness along the along Randijaure. Truly awesome landscapes.

Autumn is especially beautiful as the deciduous trees put on a colour show of oranges and reds.
