The Homestead

The rustic Homestead restaurant (Hembygdsgården) sits right on the Torne river in Jukkasjärvi. In the timbered building dating back to 1768, which is also a museum, visitors can enjoy good food in a rustic environment or just have drink or two with friends.

From our summer menu you can order charcoal grilled steaks, burgers and fish with a smoke flavor that is just marvellous. We lit the grill at 6 pm Daily.

The building that is now a traditional homestead restaurant and museum was built in the 18th century in connection to the repair of the church. What is now a restaurant used to be a school. The school was closed in the beginning of the 19th century.

If you want to know more about the history of Jukkasjärvi, please ask us. Both our staff and local visitors are happy to share their knowledge of its origins. And take the chance of visiting the Summer Exhibition Solitary Road, just in front of the Old Homestead.
