Your Guide TO KIRUNA

IN Swedish Lapland

Summer 2012

www.kirunalapland.se 1


Welcome to KIruna

in Swedish Lapland

Hello, How nice that you’re looking in our travel guide right now. We hope it will fill

you with inspiration and curiosity to travel to Kiruna.

There are so many reasons to come and see us up here in the North. Well, the

location itself is quite cool. If you follow our latitude, 67° N, round the world, you’ll

discover that it runs through uninhabited wilderness on much of the globe – Kiruna

has quite an extraordinary geographical location.

We also have many extraordinary things to offer, apart from the location. How

about the world’s biggest underground iron-ore mine, the Icehotel, Sami culture and

the impending city move? Yes, soon we’ll start moving our houses to the new Kiruna.

Kiruna Church, several turn-of-the-century houses and Kiruna’s cultural cradle

Hjalmar Lundbohmsgården are on the list of buildings that will move to what will be

the new Kiruna – an exciting upheaval.

But, above all, we have fantastic nature – wild, beautiful and unspoilt with high

mountains and deep forests, free-flowing rivers and no less than 6200 lakes – nature

with magnificent views and magical details from which to take inspiration and

strength. And in the summer, it’s light 24 hours a day as the midnight sun shines, so

there is more summer here with us.

These are just some of the many reasons to visit Kiruna Lapland, you’ll find even

more in this guide.

So, welcome to us. Welcome to Kiruna!

Tips from KirunA

On a tour to Trollsjön.

Go on a tour

Go on a tour by boat, on foot or, why not, by dog

sled – yes, even in summer. Hike in our nice mountain

environment to places like Trollsjön, Rommbakk,

Låktatjåkko or Treriksröset, or climb to the

top of Sweden’s highest mountain, Kebnekaise. And,

don’t miss a tour in the light of the midnight sun –

simply magical.

Nutti Sámi Siida ”Sámi Siida: Reindeer Park and Sámi Camp”

Culture enriches

There’s so much cultural inspiration in Kiruna

Lapland. Meet our indigenous population, the

Samis, and learn about pioneers and settlers who

came here from near and far to mine the ore and

build the town. Enjoy the rich culture of the countryside

in its villages with history dating back many

hundreds of years.

How about

a bit of adrenaline?

Butterflies in the stomach when you do something

out of the ordinary is great. In Kiruna Lapland you

don’t always have to be an extreme adventurer to

manage a more daring activity. Cave tours, whitewater

rafting, climbing and mountain bike tours

in the wilderness can be undertaken with skilful

guides who will make sure you are safe and get the

most out of the adventure.

Midnight Sun

During the period May 30 to July 14, you can see

the sun abovehorizon, if it is not cloudy, of course.

From the beginning of May to the beginning

August the nights are bright.

Fishing for young and old

Fishing attracts many people, whatever their age.

And often it’s not primarily about the catch but

the nature experience. In Kiruna Lapland, you can

choose from exclusive tours with guides to fishing

camps in unspoilt nature or hiring tackle and making

your own trip into the surrounding area.

There are more

suggestions for

activities and tours to book

here in the Guide and on our
