Our story

Jakobsbakken was from the beginning a Sami area, but from 1896 it started with active mining here. Until 1968, when the mining operation was shut down, Jakobsbakken was the place in Sulitjelma where it was mined most copper and ore. Since then, the mining town has almost fallen asleep. Now it's our job to make the magnificent surroundings shine for the world again.

Our vision

Whether you are a tourist from China, a 7th-grade student going on a camp school or the world's best cross-country skier, our mission is to create memories that you'll remember.

We will also rebuild several of the barracks that stood here when there was active mining in the early 1900s, to modern mountain lodges.

Weekly video series

Every Wednesday we publish a new episode of our video series #Weekly. There we'll show you how we're building Norway's most awesome travel destination. In our video series you get to join in meetings, workshops and take part in the experiences of those who visit us.
