Ice fishing Kiruna

Ice fishing

Ice fishing is a very common activity among local people in Kiruna. It is optimal in springtime, Mars-May, but is also possible to do whenever the ice get strong enough to walk on. Drill a hole in the ice, place out a reindeer skin and relax with a cup of tea or coffee while waiting on the big fish.

Cross country skiing

Cross country skiing is one of the most popular outdoor activities in northern Sweden.

It is simply a fantastic and fun way to explore the nature.

Snow shoeing

Snow shoeing

Ice skating on the river

Play hockey or be a ice-princess/-prince on the frozen Torne River

Shooting with an air rifle

Learn different positions like standing, kneel standing, lying and how to use the surroundings (trees, skiing sticks, backpacks, stones etc.) to get a stable aiming on the target. Some easy practise if you are interested of hunting for example.

Sliding downhill

Snow sliding down the hills in the forest, it goes fast and it's fun 

-no matter age!

Cut firewood

All the cabins on the camp are heated with fire which is very warm. When we arrive to the camp the first thing we have to do is preparing firewood with saw and axe. This is a fast way to get warm and have some fun as well!

Bring fresh water from the river

The water in the river next to the camp is extremely pure and clean - and taste amazing. Together we will make a hole in the ice to fill up some buckets with water for cooking, drinking and for sauna. 

Hike in the forest

Walk through an amazing nature and wilderness, with a meter of deep snow, an open streaming river, sunrises and sunsets, sights of wild animals and footprints, take some beautiful pictures and embrace the landscape.

Relax by a campfire

Roast a couple of marshmallows over a fire while waiting for the aurora borealis/ northern light to appear.      

Fire heated sauna

The best way to end an active outdoor day is inside a hot fire heated sauna.

Sauna 2.0

There is also a free choice to jump into the frozen river for a quick swim between the sauna rounds if you get feeling for it.

Nature is the boss and sometimes it is not possible to make all the activties in the program. For exmple if the ice on the river is too thin or we have too little snow to walk with snow shoes. Some activities can't be done in darkness.
