Join our team

Camp Ripan is a modern and innovative experience resort in the city of Kiruna, with nature right around the corner and only a stone’s throw from the city center. We are a family–owned business and our team strives to offer our guests the best Kiruna has to offer as far as hospitality, comfort, food, drink, activities and experiences.

We really do not have a particular category of guests, they come from every corner of the world! Adventure-seeking, midnight-sun enthusiast group of friends; nature–loving snow-craving families; northern lights–hunting and architect interested couples … The mix of people, cultures and interests gives our resort an exciting, international, dynamic and easy–going atmosphere.

Our work is inspired by a closeness to the Sami mountain world, the lush Torne Valley and Kiruna, a dynamic city that is constantly on the go. Our three cultures are the foundation of our design and innovative menus. We are proud to be a certified eco and sustainability facility, which means environmental thinking is an integral part of everything we do, working to minimize our negative environmental impact. Our concern for the environment is reflected in our choice of suppliers, ingredients in our restaurant as well as how we decorate our resort and choice of cleaning supplies.
