    Many years ago I travelled on the tourist railway route Inlandsbanan, which stopped a few kilometers south of Jokkmokk where some stones mark the position of the polar circle. There people got out to take photos and buy the certificates. Perhaps you can do the same where the road crosses the circle. Or maybe you can also obtain the certificates at Jokkmokk tourist office; if you have reached the town you are already north of the circle!
    I’d ask them at turist@jokkmokk.se
