A CITY IN MOTION – THE GUIDED TOUR IN THE NEW CITY HALL

The city of Kiruna is transforming in many ways when the big iron ore mine is going deeper. The oldest parts of town will disappear and historic buildings will have to move. Environments and houses will be moved or torn down. People and businesses are being effected. 

Our guided tour will start at Kiruna tourist office. We will guide you through our existing city center, visit Kiruna church and the City Hall, where you will learn more about these two famous buildings. The tour continues towards Luossavaara to get a view over the city and the mountains, where we also tell about the plans for the Luossavaara area. We visit the north east area of Kiruna, that will become the new center of Kiruna and drive through the company area and the mine city park in the old part of Kiruna. 

Time: Monday February 17, at 09.30 a.m – 10.30 a.m.
Meeting place: Scandic Hotel Ferrum

 

GUIDED TOUR TO LKAB’S VISITOR CENTRE

The mine in Kiruna is the world’s largest underground iron-ore mine. It is a fascinating operation where the ore is mined far below the surface using remotely operated machines and driverless trains. One of the best attractions in Sweden, the LKAB’s Visitor Centre, is located here.

 LKAB is currently mining down to level 1365 metres. Our guide will show you around the visitor premises that cover 20,000 square metres. This is an authentic mining environment where displays, films and machines illustrate ore mining and the production of iron. The mining museum relates the century-long history of the mine. 

Time: Tuesday february 18, at 13.00 p.m. – 15.30 p.m.

Meeting place: Scandic Hotel Ferrum
