Sustainable Kiruna

Kiruna is in the middle of an area surrounded by a natural beauty. It is rather a big area with untouched nature where Sámi reindeer herding and outdoor activities operate side by side.

Your nature friendly adventure

The municipality of Kiruna is the northernmost and by area the biggest municipality in Sweden. The destination is famous for a preserved nature- and culture landscape, majestic mountains, glaciers, many unregulated national rivers and more than 6000 lakes. In Kiruna you can find Kebnekaise the highest mountain in Sweden, two national parks and a protected primeval forest with unique surroundings with enthralling fauna. It is 26% of the municipality area and about 11% of all the protected nature in Sweden that you can find here.

Thanks to the right of public access, everyone have the right to stay in the nature, even in sensitve areas that are protected by national parks, nature reservs or Natura 2000 areas. The right of public access is built on a long term respect for the nature and the wilderness. Kiruna Lapland works to protect nature, landscapes and cultures in the long term; what can be experienced today must be preserved for future generations and contribute to the well-being of the planet. It is a priority to work in this way both for the sake of the local population and visitors.
