Guided hiking tour – depending on the participants
Hiking is a trending activity and suitable for everyone from kids to athletes. The forests surrounding Icehotel and the slightly hilly terrain is perfect for the inexperienced hikers that wants to enjoy fresh air, great views and stroll through Europe’s northernmost pine moors, which nestles the remnants of the Leppäkoski mine dating back to the 1600’s.
Kiruna city is only a short 20-minute trip away from Icehotel and offers interesting walks up on the old mines. The mountain Luossavaara has a ski slope in the winter and a hiking trail during summer – the Midnight Sun Trail, with spectacular views over Kiruna and the mine.
If you get hooked on hiking
More challenging trails can be found within a mere hour from the vicinity of Kiruna. Sweden’s highest peak Kebnekaise 2,104 m (6,903 ft) is snow-clad year round and the Tarfala glacier can be found in the same area. They are part of the Scandinavian Mountains and form the border between Sweden and Norway in the north, where you can find more hiking trails with different difficulty levels and breathtaking landscapes like taken out of a fantasy novel.
