Travel to Kiruna

Read about and get inspiration for a trip to the city, check for the cheapest flights and hotels in Helsingborg

Founded in 1900 to take advantage of the local iron deposits, Kiruna is the most northern community in Sweden and is a popular place to visit because of its Icehotel. It’s a residence that is carved from the snow and ice each year a short drive from the community and is known as the world’s first ice hotel. It first opened in 1990 and is built each year from December to April.

Everything in the hotel is made from ice, including the beds, chairs, and furniture and there is a bar that serves drinks in ice glasses on site. For a unique wedding, take advantage of the ice chapel as well! If you’d like to see more of what Kiruna has to offer, here are a few essentials you might wish to add to your upcoming itinerary so you can enjoy everything this community has to offer!

Experience a Life of No Problems in Kiruna

The people of Kiruna have the nickname of being the “no problem” people and let’s face it – when your home is thinking about collapsing into the local mine pit, life becomes a lot simpler! Plans are being made to relocate everything a few miles away, but in the mean time you can visit one of the landmarks that has made Kiruna famous: the Stadshus.

Awarded the most beautiful building used publicly in 1964, this building has a unique display of Sami handicrafts that seems oddly out of place, yet perfectly at home with the art collection that you’ll find here. It also houses the city’s administration because it directly translates as “city hall.” It’s an open concept building with a tower that you can climb to get a great view of the surrounding community.

For a further glimpse at the Sami way of life, meander over to Gardi to get a look at what reindeer farming is all about. You’ll have a guide take you about the yard and you’ll get to be up close and personal with these majestic creatures. It’s easy to get there by bus if you wish, or take your own ride if you prefer.

Why Not Explore Outer Space?

A visit to Kiruna isn’t complete without a visit to Esrange. It’s a space base where some of today’s best scientists are researching the outer reaches of known space and looking at how climate change is affecting the planet. The Northern Lights are also routinely studied here and this is where Virgin Galactic plans to commence the first commercial space flight in 2014.

If after all of this exploring you’re a bit hungry, then you need to head out to Camp Ripan. It is a campground, certainly, but it also has one of the best lunch buffets you’ll ever get the chance to enjoy. It’s a big heavy on the vegetables, but you’ll get a good value from the investment. You’ve got to get involved with the additional menu with seasonal produce and tasting options that include lingonerries with reindeer, moose, and ptarmigan.

Are you ready to visit Kiruna in the near future? This community might be on the brink of a relocation, but it’s also on the brink of providing you with something intensely unique and personal. Plan your trip here soon and you won’t be disappointed!
