A city on the move

A city on the move

Kiruna is transforming in many ways when the iron ore mine is expanding. The oldest parts of the Town will disappear. Environments and houses will be moved or torn down.

Come along with Hjalmar Lundbohmsgården on a guided tour by minibus where you will get more information about the ongoing city tranformation.

Interested in hiking?

The hiking season is soon here, but there is a lot of snow in the mountains right now that is melting. During this time it can be a lot of water in the streams, you have to be really careful if you need to pass them, they can be really deep.
It is wonderful to hike up in the mountains from end of June, in some parts you might even have to wait until the beginning of July, when the water is gone and the tracks (hopefully) are nice and dry.   

Have a nice hike!
