Kiruna is the northernmost town in Sweden, and the biggest settlement in Swedish Lapland. It’s a popular tourist destination thanks to the famous Icehotel, thriving Sami culture, and the proximity to Sweden’s highest mountain, Kebnekaise. During early summer people flock to the town to see the midnight sun, while winter sports take precedence during the colder months. Great food, vibrant festivals, and access to the untamed wilderness make Kiruna a great place to visit all year round.
