Snowmobiles, northern lights, breathtaking views in the land of snow and ice.
The winter season in Kiruna is like an adventure park for grown-ups and children alike. The snow, ice and vast landscapes of wild nature at its best offers a great deal of fantastic adventures.
The winter season is long: it lasts from November until May. The darkest period of the year— the so-called polar night—starts on the winter solstice on the 21st of December and continues until the 4th of January. During this period, the sun does not rise above the horizon. The coldest time of the winter is as expected, starting in January and lasting through February. The days get longer and warmer slowly, from mid- and late March through the end of April. Sometimes you can ice fish in the sunshine, wearing just a T-shirt.
For the ultimate winter adventure, we recommend that guests visit Kiruna for 5-7 days. In that period of time, there’s time to do remote trips overnight during the days with the best weather. There’s also a good chance you’ll experience the northern lights during the evenings and nights, when the sky is clear. The lights are truly magical to experience in the wild,where there is no light pollution the vast wilderness of Kiruna, you can experience being in the the wild without meeting another soul for days or weeks.
