Unsafe snow conditions in the mountains

There are unsafe snow conditions and thus an increased risk of avalanches in large parts of Norrbotten's mountain chain. Be careful if you intend to go out into the mountains and stay updated!

LKAB’s Visitor Centre


Yes we will have tours in summer! We are aiming towards opening the summer tours in April. It is still unclear how many tours we will do and when, but the plan is to offer at least two tours per day from midsummer to approx mid-August. The period before and after that will also have a few tours per week.

The mine in Kiruna is the world’s largest underground iron-ore mine. It is a fascinating operation where the ore is mined far below the surface using remotely operated machines and driverless trains. One of the best attractions in Sweden, the LKAB’s Visitor Centre, is located here – a show mine that the Lonely Planet international guide book gave its highest rating.

We go by bus directly from the Tourist Center into the mountain and down to the show mine LKAB’s Visitor Centre situated at level 540 metres. LKAB is currently mining down to level 1365 metres. Our guide will show you around the visitor premises that cover 20,000 square metres. This is an authentic mining environment where displays, films and machines illustrate ore mining and the production of iron. The mining museum relates the century-long history of the mine. The guide will talk about modern mining and how it can cause a whole town to be moved.
