Business trip to Bodø and Salten

Business trip to Bodø and Salten is something unique! Helicopter, dog sledding, Northern Lights, culinary food and stunning nature. Combine business, travel and unique experiences in Sulitjelma. 

Business trip to Bodø and Salten – An event in the autumn 

Are you planning to arrange a meeting with teambuilding to Bodø or Salten after the holidays? At Jakobsbakken in Sulitjelma, we have many good activities to offer you, starting from an authentic mining town in the Arctic mountains.

Autumn is a time when many companies organize start-up collections, new employee events or kick off-trip for their employees. Only three hours from the vibrant life at Aker Brygge, there is one

old mining town with one of the largest untouched wilderness areas we have in Norway.

The autumn is perhaps the most magical time in Sulitjelma. It’s clear and nice in the air, the northern lights are coming back and the sunset is magnificent. In addition, there is an eldorado for hunting and fishing in the fall, with several hundred fishing lakes and large grouse stock in the Junkerdal National Park.

We can serve you throughout your stay with breakfast, lunch, and dinner – as well as fruit and snacks during your stay.

For breakfast, there is normal Norwegian food. With bread, salmon, eggs, bacon, etc.

For lunch, there is lasagna, soups, etc.

For dinner, there is a three-course menu. Here we often use salmon and reindeer, prepared together with local food. If you have any wishes for food, then it’s just to order it in advance, and we will arrange it. We sell beer, drinks, and wine to the food.
