Book your accommodation for summer in one of our glass igloo!
We that lives in Kiruna, loves the nature in every shape. To live here during the winter is an amazing adventure every year. It is very easy to forgot that the summer in Kiruna are at least equal fantastic, if not more. Under the spring, when the snow has thawed, animals and plant-life wakes alive again and the greenery is just a stone’s throw away from our beautiful mountains.
Imagine having snow on the highest peaks at the same time you have completely greenery on the ground. It’s a view we wish for every single one of you. When the ice is melting piece by piece over the lake Torneträsk, that we every year recommend our guests to take a walk over to completely experience the mountains that wraps around the lake.
During the summer in Kiruna you can see birds of prey and mooses. Even lynx and wolverine, but they are very shy so if you see one of them you are a lucky one. Golden eagle, sea eagle and mountain buzzard sometimes fly past us. If you are fast with your camera you may got a picture of it.
If you like the plant-life vi highly recommend a visit on naturum in Abisko that is located next to the touriststation. In Abisko you can find lime, moving groundwater and a sunny south slope. This favors herbs such as Fjällsippa and Lapland alpros, which only grow where the soil is rich in chalk
