THIS IS KIRUNA
Kiruna is Sweden's most northern city. A city full of interesting culture, projects and nature to discover. 200 kilometers north of the arctic circle the northern lights are dancing in the winter night sky. While during summer the sun never sets. The native Sami culture is big part of the society. Kiruna is also famous for the world's largest underground iron mine, which is right now forcing the city and the inhabitants to move because of the mine´s need to expand towards the city. Besides being 1500 meters underground, Kiruna also has the highest mountain of Sweden, which is amazing to climb during the summer months. From this tiny city even rockets are launched from the space center Esrange. Another popular and beautiful destination to visit here is the Ice Hotel, filled with artwork made of snow and ice. If you like to give it a go we can drop you off there after the tour. It is about 20 kilometers outside the city center. Then there are buses going back.
