Lonely Planet review
This large and well-equipped campground has hotel-standard chalets and stylish rooms with Sami-inspired art – in addition to its caravan and tent sites. In winter you can bed down in an igloo – a budget version of the Icehotel – and be defrosted in the morning with hot lingonberry drink and a spell in the sauna.
Our independent authors have visited Camp Ripan and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Kiruna.
