Experience Kiruna

Lapporten in Winter Attire

200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, in Sweden's northernmost part, lies the modern and arctic city of Kiruna. The municipality, the largest in Sweden, constitutes one-twentieth of the country's area and borders Finland and Norway.

In and around Kiruna, there is an abundance of nature: vast expanses, birch forests, rivers, and as many as 6,000 lakes. This provides opportunities for a wide range of outdoor activities both in summer and winter. You can see the snow-covered Scandinavian mountains from the city centre, the Scandes. Tourists come here to experience the genuine and small-scale atmosphere.
