Adventure seekers love the great variety of activities on offer in this Swedish city. Since it is located close to the Arctic Circle, Kiruna is a wonderland for tourists during the cold, snowy winter months. This winter wonderland comes alive at this time of year with skiing, sledding, snowboarding, dogsledding and ice fishing. During the summer the sun shines non-stop making it an ideal time to take a trip to Kebnekaise, Sweden's highest mountain. A rent a car will ensure you travel comfortably to each landmark in the city and surrounding areas. Take a drive to Abisko and its National Park, located 100 kms from the city and learn more about the fauna and flora of the region and of the Arctic Circle. A rent a car is a great option if you want to take a road trip to neighboring cities like Pitea, Lulea, Norrbotten and Bodo. Stop along the way to enjoy the Sarek National Park for a day trip or overnight stay.
