the heart of Lapland


Welcome to Skaulo. A small village located halfway between Gällivare and Kiruna municipalities. In the center, and in the heart of Lapland. The village is connected by the intertwined roads E10/E45 which runs through the city. The lake Soutujärvi  is located by the village, and is giving opportunities for great fishing, swimming or boat tours.


The village has a small grocery store with gas station, an in the neighboring village Puoltikasvaara you will find a café and Tesla Supercharger. Despite great communications and service offerings, the fantastic nature in Lapland is right outside your door.  Many hikers uses this area a a basecamp for excursions both south and north. 

The village of Skaulo was founded in 1666, but archeologist have found skis dated to around 500 AD in the areas.
