Living in beautiful Lapland
Kiruna is the northernmost city in Sweden, situated in the province of Lapland. The wild, beautiful and magnificent surroundings give you a wide selection of outdoor recreation activities. In the summer you enter the world of the midnight sun, and in the winter you may experience an incredible light show; the northern lights or Aurora Borealis. It is common to see wild animals such as reindeer and moose.
The town of Kiruna offers shopping, restaurants, bars, a hospital and much more. Kiruna might seem remote, but there is communication available with trains, buses and the international airport with some direct routes to cities outside Sweden and only a 1,5-hour flight to Stockholm.
