Visitor Reviews of Kiruna

Wiebe Koorevaar from Netherlands writes:

Kiruna is mainly a destination for the famous ice hotel, husky sled rides, snowscooter rides and visits to the mines. But they also have a small skiing area which should just be called a bluff with some lifts. The snow is good all winter long because the city is in the north pole circle, however this 'mountain' is the only bluff in the vicinity so it catches all the wind. Renting equipment is outdated, slopes are not challenging and there is only one house at the bottom where you can drink or eat the local 'specialty': mashed potatoes with a hotdog sticking out of it.

However, in town there was something going on for apres ski: the Scandia Hotel has a bar/discotheque open to everyone which was very good. If you go to Kiruna, go for the other attractions that skiing. Yet if you have an hour spare when waiting for your plane or train back south, you could go there just like I did for the novelty of skiing in the north pole circle.
