Regardless of your preferences — major adrenaline rushes or a calmer approach, at your own pace. The less crowded lifts, without queues, give you downhill skiing with all flow and no wait. Heading out on skis is easy. In some cases, you just have to put them on when you step outside your door because skiing terrain and tracks are often located in such close proximity. From central Kiruna it’s a mere hour’s drive to get to the mountains and ski above the tree line. Perfect conditions await, with natural snow no matter what style you prefer — downhill or cross-country. If you wish you can ascend several hundred feet above sea level to the top of a mountain where you can survey the beautiful mountain landscape and feel as though you are on top of the world.

In Kiruna you can ski on natural snow almost all year round, from late autumn to Midsummer. You can also ski beneath the northern lights and the blue Arctic light in midwinter, or in the blazing sunshine of spring and midnight sun just before the snow gives way to the next season. We don’t have hills in Kiruna, we have mountains. A landscape of tall mountains that takes over where the dense forest landscape leaves off. There are lots of lakes too, which you can ski across in winter as they’re covered with thick ice and snow.
