Well , if u are brave enough to spend your holiday in kiruna , why would u stick in town ?

Aurora Camp is 15 mn away from the city , but then you can have a real taste of what living in the Lapland means.

The rooms are very cute and even have saunas for some , but what you'll find most exciting will be the frozen lake where you can wait the beautiful lights to come !!

Aurora Camp was a fabulous place to stay. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was comfortable, warm and had everything that was required. The have two traditional sauna rooms, so it was great to have a wood fired sauna looking out onto the snow and icicles hanging from the outside roof.
Food was plentiful and tasty. Different meals each night highlighting local foods.
Scenery in the area is amazing and plenty of opportunities to see the aurora. I would recommend a stay here if you are in the area.

We had a 6 day stay at the Aurora camp. We booked 2 cabins with running water (shower and toilet) as there was 5 of us.
Both cabins (the log cabin and a wilderness cabin) were clean and very cosy! The log cabin is a big cabin with a full kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and fire place.
The wilderness cabin doesn’t have a kitchen but does have a sauna

We ordered all of our meals through the camp. Every lunch and dinner was excellent! We loved the home cooked meals! Thumbs up!

The only thing that may have been missed was the lack of alcohol...it would be good if the camp would offer a basic range of wines for sale.
However, I knew this before and had my own bottles with me.

The staff, Mikko and Kasha, were both amazing! Very friendly and helpful and made our stay even more memorable!
Thank you for taking such good care of us!

We loved our stay at the aurora camps - we were even lucky enough to see the northern lights one evening!

We’d booked all of our tours through Kiruna guidetours (cabins belong to the same group), everything was perfect and so much fun!
All I can say is that this was a once in a lifetime trip that we will cherish and remember forever!
Thank you all for making it so special!

I can't give this place enough stars
The scenery is breathtakingly beautiful in the winter, with the frozen river, forest, mountains, wildlife, almost perpetual sunrise and sunset light.
The cabin we stayed in was a perfect little gem of warmth and comfort, private sauna, massive wood burning stove, and the most comfortable beds we've even slept in.
There's use of the hot tub and other saunas if you book, the dining room is a great space to hang out in, and there are outbuildings dotted about where you can sit, cook, read, or chat
And all this topped off with he most welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable staff (plus the happiest dog in the world)
We lived every minute, and we're sad to leave
So much so that we're going to drive back in the summer to see why 24hour sunlight looks like

Room Tip: They're all great

We (family of 4) stayed in the harmony lodge, which offers accommodation for up to 10. There is a main house which has the kitchen, dining and seating area and a bathroom. There is an additional building with 3 separate rooms, each with 2 beds.
We came in winter which means no running water. Water is frequently delivered in large barrels, and come directly from the river torne- clean and cool.
The toilet is a chemical one - no flush or water involved, and it is not too pleasant.

There is an open log fire which makes the cabin toasty warm.

The harmony lodge also has its own sauna, you can use the heated water to wash afterwards, as there is no shower.

There is a shower and flushable toilet at the main camp 400 meters away - I used this often.

The staff are marvellous , and clearly love working in such a wonderful part of the world.

The camp is associated with Kiruna guidetur, so activities are often based around camp - igloo building and aurora viewing etc. You can book lots of interesting activities such as snowmobiling, skiing, husky trips. We hired skis and had them delivered to our door.

We are not car drivers, so relied entirely upon Kiruna guidetur for travel into Kiruna city and airport transfer.
It is quite pricey (350 or each way - ) it is a long and snowy journey.
There is a bus once a day, but the distance makes it almost impossible.

We went to the ice hotel on a regular bus from Kiruna bus station - well worth the trip, it's beautiful.

During our holiday we saw the aurora which is worth any discomfort

The experience overall was that of being with nature, seeing reindeer, birds, moose and snow without the trappings of modern life.
