Kiruna

Trip Planner Europe  /  Sweden  /  Norrbotten County  /  Kiruna
(4.1/5 based on 1,500+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, historic sites, adventure
Sweden's northernmost city, Kiruna remains best known for its proximity to the world's first hotel-museum built entirely of snow and ice. Home to a population of indigenous Sami people, also known as Laplanders or the "No-Problem People," the small city sits on the edge of the largest underground mine pit in the world. Kiruna also serves as a comfortable base camp for trips into the surrounding region, which is famous for its pristine wilderness suitable for a range of year-round outdoor activities. Don't expect a lively nightlife or diverse shopping opportunities; prepare instead to spend your time observing the midnight sun or the northern lights. Use our world travel planner: Kiruna and all its delights await.

Where to stay

In the Arctic town of Kiruna, most accommodations lie in town, including cottages, cabins, guesthouses, and a handful of mid-market hotels and bed and breakfasts. If your budget allows, stay in the world-renowned ice hotel. Abisko National Park is an hour or so outside the main town, so if that's your reason for visiting, opt to stay at a mid-market or upscale hotel near the park. You can also camp in the park itself and take a guided tour to see the Northern Lights.
