Stora Sjöfallet/Stuor Muorkke is the most accessible national park in the area. The Way West goes through the national park and allows visitors access to both rest areas along the road and the Laponia Naturum.

Along the Way West there are a number of rest areas in and adjacent to the national park. Several of them, such as Áhkká/Rájvvo and Girjáluokta, are adapted for the disabled. Along the road there also are several information displays with links to digital media guides.


In the heart of Stora Sjöfallet/Stuor Muorkke, you will find the naturum visitor centre on the Viedásnjárgga point by Lake Láŋas. It is designed to collect snow so that when there are storms on the point in the winter, the snow will become part of the architecture. Naturum is the visitor centre for all of the national parks in the Laponia World Heritage Site.

When you visit, you can see slide shows and exhibits, take part in children’s activities, listen to lectures and learn more about the Sami way of living with nature. At naturum you can also get more information about what day trips you can go on in the area.
