Do you want to lie in the heather and dream away, while the only thing you hear is your own pulse and the wind blowing?
Sulis mountains is known far beyond Norway’s borders as one of Norway’s most stunning natural landscapes. It is located in the heart of Lapland and is the gateway to the Laponia World Heritage site, which is just across the border from Sulitjelma. Here you will find everything from magnificent, hilly countryside with many large and small fishing lakes to elongated U-valleys between high-altitude mountain ranges.
From Jakobsbakken you can walk a few hundred meters, then you are inside the venerable Junkerdal National Park. In the national park you will find many old testimonies of Sami settlement and farm use. There are traces of Sami tent settlements, old-tufts, rather, fishing facilities and fireplaces. The Sami are still running reindeer herding here.
The landscape has a very rich flora with many rare plant species. The whole area has been very important for understanding the establishment and distribution of plants and animals since the last ice age in Northern Norway.
Starting from Jakobsbakken, you can walk for days without meeting a single person. You will get close to nature in the Arctic mountain world and the opportunity to see wildlife with reindeer, hare, grouse and fox up close.
