Kiruna, unlike many of the other towns reviewed in Great Arctic Eats, has a road going in and out of it. This feature cannot be overestimated, particularly if wish to get there by car. Pogo sticking or hang gliding there simply isn’t practical. However, once there, the town has many worthwhile things to see.
Then reserve your spot on the Snowmobile Aurora Expedition with dinner. Snowmobiles, dinner, and the Aurora Borealis. What more do you want?
Go on TreriksrÖset. According to Kiruna’s visitors, it’s a beautiful hiking trail with points of interest.
Visit LKAB’s Visitor Centre. It’s the world’s largest underground iron-ore mine. The town of Kiruna was built around this mine.
Finally, see the Esrange Space Center. It has a science museum, an observatory, and a planetarium. A family that visited noted they went there. They also recommend that you go there as well. Yeah, tourists in Kiruna really don’t waste many words, do they?
But perhaps the visitors’ words are taken away by the many wonderful things to see in and around town.
As always, “Good eating. Good traveling.”
