Sustainable experiences

From every corner of the world, people come here to experience our breathtaking, yet delicate nature. Northern lights, midnight sun, stunning mountain views and fresh air – we want our guests to experience everything we love about Kiruna, an experience built on respect and consideration for the environment we have the privilege of living in. 

Together with local partners, we provide our guests with knowledge about the nature of the region, as well as cultural values. We choose to collaborate with local activity providers that have solid knowledge of the area and who share our vision of sustainable development of tourism in Kiruna. We feel it is important to work with and respect other local actors and we actively work with having an open dialogue between different tourism companies, landowners and reindeer herders.  

To provide utmost quality and safety, our activities are in small groups, enabling us to see every guest.

Join us on one of our Nature’s Best – certified activities

Catch the northern lights riding on the back of an Icelandic horse, wander through a glittering winter wonderland on snowshoes or meet Nils Torbjörn Nutti’s reindeer herd in Jukkasjärvi.  

Our Nature’s Best certification guarantees that we provide our guests with high-quality experiences combined with an active responsibility for protecting nature, more eco-friendly travel and careful consideration of the cultural values and people at the destination.  

Motivation by the Certification Committee for Camp Ripan

“An important operator that has taken on the principles of ecotourism with respect and sincerity. Here local produce is transformed into culinary delicacies that guests can enjoy after exciting trips with local activity providers. Accommodations are surprisingly stylish with a mix of Scandinavian and Sami influences and the hotel has a strict environmental policy. So take the night train to Kiruna and enjoy being pampered in Ripan’s comfortable amenities before embarking on a range of exciting adventures.”.
