Summer activities

A summer in Kiruna can offer every type of weather, from parched and hot to cool and rainy, and don’t be surprised if it snows! Now, no matter what your thoughts are on that, and while the weather and wind change from one day to the next, one thing stays the same – the light! For that we can thank the life-giving midnight sun, which encourages a feverish growth in every direction, around the clock. The midnight sun turns night into day, our life spirit is injected with surplus energy and you find it difficult to crawl into bed at a reasonable time, if you remember to go to bed at all!  Quite undeniably, summer in Sweden’s northernmost city is rather special and well worth experiencing. There are so many summer activities to choose from, so no matter whether you join an exhilarating rafting trip down the Torne River, hike along the Midnight Sun Trail or take a dip in Sweden’s northernmost heated outdoor swimming pool, you will carry away memories for life. Welcome to Camp Ripan and a summer experience in Kiruna!

Here you will find more information about the midnight sun.
