i read that there is a place on 45 road arround jukkmokk where turists can get a certificate atesting that they have passed the north polar circle,, did anyone know how can i get there and if this thing is for real?
Many years ago I travelled on the tourist railway route Inlandsbanan, which stopped a few kilometers south of Jokkmokk where some stones mark the position of the polar circle. There people got out to take photos and buy the certificates. Perhaps you can do the same where the road crosses the circle. Or maybe you can also obtain the certificates at Jokkmokk tourist office; if you have reached the town you are already north of the circle!
I’d ask them at [email]
