"Winter Sports - in the Arctic Dark of December" Kiruna Things to Do Tip by Colorado70

Kiruna Things to Do: 66 reviews and 88 photos

We went to Abisko National Park and stayed at Abisko Tourist Station hostel. We went dogsledding, used the sauna and walked on the nearby frozen lake Tornetrask. It was in mid-December so there was no sun, but also no people. It was peaceful and beautiful.
Because the snow wasn't deep, we also went hiking back into the park.
I would like to go back and spend more time there, possibly going deeper into the Abisko NP to do some hut-to-hut x-country skiing or dogsledding.
Great place, great experience.
