    Aurora Sky Station

    Across the highway from the STF Turiststation, a chairlift takes you up Mt Nuolja (1164m), where you can enjoy epic views from the deck of the Panorama Café. In summer this is a prime spot from which to see the midnight sun – the lift is open 10pm to 1am three days per week in June & July. In winter, come to view the northern lights.

  • Sights in Kiruna

    LKAB Iron-Ore Mine

    Kiruna owes its existence to the world’s largest iron-ore deposit, 2km into the ground, and the action happens as far as 1545m below the surface. A visit here consists of being bussed to a closed-off section of a mine tunnel, where you can hear mind-blowing stats and view truly giant mining equipment, such as the mills used to crush ore. Tours leave from the tourist office daily between June and August and with advance booking the rest of the year.

    Kiruna Kyrka

    Consecrated in 1913, the Kiruna kyrka was built to look like a huge Sami kåta (hut) and is particularly pretty against a snowy backdrop. A town landmark, it is slated to survive the town's move to the east.
