(3.7/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
Descend deep below the surface of the Earth and learn about the process of mining one of the world's most sought-after commodities at LKAB's Visitor Centre. Located in the north of Sweden, the mine that opened over a century ago is now one of the largest and most modern in the world. More than 70,000 tons of ore are extracted here every day. Go on an underground bus tour of the "show mine" and learn about mining techniques throughout history. Find out how such huge quantities of ore are transported to the surface, and gain a better understanding of the environmental impact of mining operations. The mine is clean and safe, but you will be provided with a hard hat and a pair of overalls. Tours are available in Swedish and English, and you can make a booking online. Bus tours leave from the tourist office in Kiruna, and the cost of your ticket includes coffee and a cookie. Using our custom trip planner, Kiruna attractions like LKAB's Visitor Centre can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Very orderly and good visit that started at the tourist information office in Kiruna. From there, we got to ride the bus down to 540 m for a very good guided tour in the visitor center. During the visit, we had the opportunity to see and feel on the equipment used in the mine.
