Jukkasjärvi Homestead

The rustic Homestead (Hembygdsgården) has a special place in the heart of Jukkasjärvi locals. In the timbered building dating back to 1768, which is also a museum, an open fire is crackling in winter, and the porch overlooking the calm passing of Torne river is a welcome spot for drinks and meals in summer.

In the kitchen, the heat radiates from the charcoal-fired oven, and on the menu you find the dishes of a typical steakhouse. Simple but carefully selected comfort food like burgers, rib-eye and salmon are served with your choice of potatoes and a selection of cold homemade cold sauces.

The buildings housing the restaurant and museum were built in the 18th century in connection to the repair of the Jukkasjärvi village church and used to be a school. Jukkasjärvi has been a settled village for over four hundred years, but it was a market place for the Sámi and tradesmen from all over northern Scandinavia and Russia long before.

It gets its name from the Sámi language, translating to “meeting by the water”. If you want to know more about the history of Jukkasjärvi, ask your waiter or one of the locals in the bar – we’re re happy to share stories about the village and its history.
