Description of Organisation:

Saxn??s is located in southern Lapland. It is the crossroads where two cultures meet: the indigenous Lapps and the settlers. This is the place where mythology and folklore mix it is where many artists, such as Asger Jorn, have sought and found their inspiration and energy.
The area around Saxn??s is grandiose. There are hiking and ski trails to suit your taste take an easy outing, or an adventurous trek.
For many years, artists have been fascinated by the beauty of the mountains with their evasive dance of shadows and alternating hues. Many are they who have tried to catch the challenge of the mountain landscape others have spent their time trying to interpret the meaning of the bogs and the secrets they hold. There is a legacy here that will continue to fascinate and inspire.
