ABOUT KVIKKJOKK FJÄLLSTATION
Kvikkjokk – One of Lapland’s most beautiful spots. An excellent starting point for simple day trips or more challenging hikes.
Kvikkjokk is situated well into the forest of Lapland – at the end of the road. If in search for real wilderness, as well as nature’s true beauty, paying Kvikkjokk a visit is an absolute must. There are two massive national parks bordering to Kvikkjokk, Padjelanta and Sarek. Together with Stora Sjöfallet, these areas form Laponia – a world heritage site founded in 1995 by UNESCO.
Already in the 18th century, Carl von Linné went on an expedition to Kvikkjokk, where he collected and categorized the areas’ flora. When he reached the majestic landscape of Lapland, he was taken aback by the beauty and silence of the mountains.
The mountain station in Kvikkjokk was built in 1928 and has had the honor of hosting kings, writers and other historic figures on their mountain hikes throughout the years. The walls whisper of their heritage and times gone by.
Kvikkjokk Mountain Lodge is a certified member of STF (Svenska Turistföreningen).
