If you visit Jokkmokk be sure to see if you can join in on one of the guided tours with Eva Gunnare – it was such a magical experience, I can’t recommend it enough.

Meeting Eva was one of the funniest and interesting moment of all my shootings in Lapland this last August…I recommend to pay a visit to Eva not only to learn about herbs and culinary activity but also to meet a very joyful person full of positive energy….See you there and thanks Eva.

I really enjoyed the Essense of Lapland performance last Friday. It was something quite different for me and really helped to bring the Lapland culture to life.

If you take the Essense of Lapland tours you will get a deep understanding and appreciation of how the town fits into the wider scheme of Sami life, the foods and medicines used and the history of the whole area. Eva is a perceptive and knowledgeable guide with a lovely warm and engaging manner.
The tours offered by Eva are highly recommended for anyone visiting Jokkmokk.

We loved the 2.5 hours that we spent with Eva. She is such a genuine person with a passion for the environment and the possibilities of the food sources in the forests and meadows of Lapland.

Flavor tours – learn & taste about Lapland’s nature & culture

Come along on a tour with foraged herbs and berries in focus. I bring my basket filled with taste bits for the outdoor nature walk. Indoors I have set the table with more homemade treats. The 2.5 hours is filled with inspiring knowledge and taste experiences from my own discoveries about the nature and culture.
