About 4km (2 1/2 miles) north of Kiruna along highway E10 is a showcase of Lappish artifacts, Mattarahkka (tel. 0980/160-77). Established in 1993, it's a log house capped proudly with the red, blue, yellow, and green Sami flag. The site includes workshops where visitors can watch traditional Sami products (knives, leather knapsacks, hats, gloves, and tunics) being made. Many of the items are for sale. The interior includes a simple cafe. The site is open from late June to August daily 10am to 6pm; off season Monday to Friday noon to 6pm.
