Sweden’s northernmost mountain botanical garden is found in Jokkmokk, about 10 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Come and familiarise yourself with alpine plants normally found on mountain peaks in Sarek, or species-rich moorland in Padjelanta.
The Mountain Botanical Garden in Jokkmokk is a part of Ájtte, Swedish Mountain and Sámi Museum. During more than two decades a world of its own, a miniature mountain landscape, has emerged. It ranges from taiga forest and low-lying land to snowdrifts and the little mountain peak Ingrid, where the bedrock has laboriously been uncovered by hand. Here you can climb up and look out over an entire little mountain world, with a unique diversity of species.
