"Kebnekaise" Kiruna Things to Do Tip by Sjalen

Kiruna Things to Do: 66 reviews and 88 photos

 
 

Sweden's highest mountain, and unfortunately shrinking as it is affected by climate change, is impressive. I have never climbed it myself as I am not a very good fell walker, but look at dave_21's pages to see someone who has! I have every intention of going to the STF fell station at Kebnekaise one day to at least see how far I get though. The station is open summertime and has all amenities for you if you want to have a go at conquering a mountain or two in this range, visible from Kiruna (but you have to click on the picture to see the snowy range behind the minining building).

Directions: South west of Kiruna.
