In my Northern lights adventure trip,Kiruna was a two night stay.With us(my friends and me),arriving late at night on the first night.So practically,we were there for one and a half days only.The camp(only in name) is very close to the airport and took us only 20 minutes to reach there.

We had booked chalets ,which come with a heated bath,toilet,kitchenette (well equipped with utensils,tea bags,sugar,and dish washing gel/bar).Also within the chalet there is separate smaller room which has bunk beds ,perfect for kids.You can sleep them there and have your privacy.The chalet is nice and warm.It also has a round table and four chairs for small families to eat together.Since I was travelling with friends ,it became our hangout.

Dinner cost around 800/900 Kr,which is very expensive.I would suggest to try restaurants in Kiruna town.They are some nice and more reasonable options there.

The town is also just a few minutes away.It’s amazing to see such a small and well equipped town.It had restaurants,public library,a small mall,shopping and everything you need and more.When I travelled,Christmas spirit was in the air and the whole town was decorated like it was waiting for Santa to arrive .

Location:It is just outside the city which is about a 15-20 minute walk.Airport too is just about a 20 minute car ride away.
