The mountain guides are located in the old mining town of Jakobsbakken, five kilometres south of Sulitjelma. Between 1890 and 1968, Jakobsbakken was bustling with mining activity, but when the mines were closed down the workers moved back to Sulitjelma. The workers’ housing has remained and today serves as popular holiday homes. Additionally, Fjellfarer is working to rebuild the barrack Titanic, originally built the same year as the ship, whichburnt down in the 1960s. Once Titanic is rebuilt, Fjellfarer will be able to offer overnight stays and dining in Jakobsbakken.
