Kvikkjokk

Kvikkjokk is situated beside a delta and surrounded by scenic mountains of Vallevárre, Sjnjierák and Nammásj. The delta area is formed by the Tarra River and the Gamajåhkå rapids which join in the center of the village. The area is at the edge of several of our national parks and the surroundings of Kvikkjokk provide a unique outdoors and an interesting history for visitors.

Kvikkjokk was founded during the extraction of silver in Lapland in the 1600s when the Swedish state decided to mine silver ore in Sarek and Padjelanta. By the Gamájåhkå rapids a silver smelter was built to process the mined silver ore. There was both wood for fuel and water here to run the smelter. In the proximity of the smelter about twenty buildings were erected, including a dwelling for the priest. This became the beginning of Kvikkjokk.

In 1732 Carl Linnaeus visited Kvikkjokk during his trip to Lapland. On his hike to the barren mountain top of Vallevárre he collected a large portion of the basic data he used for his systematic mapping of the mountain flora.

Kvikkjokk is an old tourist spot. From the middle of the 1800s hikers have visited the village, at the beginning with the Sulitelma Massif as destination. Today it is the national parks of Sarek and Padjelanta that attract most hikers.

Kvikkjokk can also offer day tours for the visitor, all from hiking in easy terrain to harder high Alpine areas. Examples of tours is the easy hike to Kvarntjärnarna, the Mill Ponds, the hike to Prinskullen and more demanding tours to the high mountains of Gasskájvo in the Tarrekaise Massif. In the surroundings there are large undisturbed areas with varying types of nature such as the high mountain areas, the foothills, old growth forests, waterways, the delta land, etc.

We offer tours to many interesting places in the area. We also arrange lectures about Kvikkjokk and its environs.
