25 mil norr om polcirkeln lyser sommarsolen nästan två månader i sträck utan att gå ned, medan polarnatten erbjuder det mest intensiva norrsken som går att finna. Här kan du åka slalom fram till midsommar eller övernatta i ett magnifikt hotell byggt av is. Kontrasternas rike är ett slitet uttryck. Men Kiruna är originalet.

Midnight Sun

If you have never been in Northern Scandinavia during the midsummer period, the bright nights are perhaps the most fascinating and apparent phenomenon. The sun doesn’t set at all. You can get spectacular views of the surroundings from the city mountain, Luossavaara, about 4 km outside Kiruna. The midnight sun can be experienced between 27 May and 14 July in Kiruna.

Northern Lights

Between September and April, there is the chance of experiencing the northern lights, provided that it is a starry night. The aurora borealis, or Northern Lights, is a stunning natural light display in the Earth's sky, caused by solar winds disturbing the magnetosphere and ionizing atmospheric particles. You can look up the northern lights forecast online.
