The Old Homestead

From the genuine and homely restaurant The Old Homestead (Hembygdsgården) you can enjoy a view of the Torne River. In the timbered building dating back to 1768, which is also a museum, visitors can enjoy a home cooked meal with an organic focus and traditional cooking methods in a rustic environment or just have drink or two with friends. If you are lucky you might even get to enjoy the sound of Backwood Shindig, ICEHOTEL’s own house band.

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.
