Favorite thing: Every other year (uneven), Jokkmokk hosts "Hela Sveriges Film Festival", i,e, All Sweden's Film festival some time in late May. This I think has happened since 1993, but these days it seems to have taken off a bit more and got its own coordinating office. Even during non festival times, Jokkmokk has this fantastic cinema in a barn, Bio Norden, where all sorts of films from really narrow to Hollywood hits are screened.
Favorite thing: If you can, try to visit Jokkmokk at the annual winter market which has now been going on for more than 400 years. At Lake Talvatis (picture), there are reindeer races and these are perhaps the most well-known feature visitors have heard of, but there is much more. To be ctd.
