After talking with tour operators from countries such as India, Switzerland, and the USA, having visitors from foreign TV-channels and having one of the greatest winter athletics of all time at our Mountain Resort, I am absolutely sure of one thing. Jakobsbakken and the mountains of Sulis is a paradise for quality tourism, whether you are a family from Bodø or a tourist from India.
In the mountains of Sulis, the area around Jakobsbakken Mountain Resort, there are unique opportunities for mountain hiking and extreme summit trips, both summer, and winter. Here you will find several of Northern Norway's highest mountains, Norway's highest border mountain, some of Scandinavia's largest glaciers and panoramic views of the whole of Salten and several national parks.

At the beginning of the 20th century there was a very active sports environment on Jakobsbakken. The three mining areas Jakobsbakken, Sagmo and Anna had their own sports clubs and it was at the mostly nine ski jumping hills here (!)
