68 degrees bed & breakfast
68 degrees is our home in central Kiruna. Our guests have sole use of the top floor of our house, where there are two double bedrooms each with its own breakfast/living area, so there is plenty of room to spread out and relax. The rooms also have a separate luggage room, so you can keep your bedroom and living space free of clutter. One of the living areas also has an extra bed. The rooms share a large modern bathroom, so the whole floor can also be let as one and would sleep 5. There is also a sauna in the house which guests are welcome to use.
All our beds have 100% cotton sheets, and our rooms have comfortable chairs and a dining table. There is also a small kitchen, which can be used by arrangement with us.
We charge 850 SEK per night for a double room including breakfast, and 600 SEK for a single room including breakfast. If there are three of you, you can use the double room with the extra bed in the connecting room, and in that case we charge 500 SEK for the third person. If you wish to rent the whole of the top floor there is a special price of 1700 SEK per night, including breakfast, and this is for 5 people.
We are situated on a hill with a long view out to the hills. It is an easy 5 or 10 minute walk to everything that Kiruna has to offer, restaurants, shops and local sights such as Kiruna church, which has been voted Sweden's most beautiful building. From Kiruna it is easy to visit the famous ice hotel in nearby Jukkasjärvi. Around the town is the most wonderful empty landscape which offers skiing and walking and fishing opportunities. There is a downhill skiing slope in the town, and you can do cross country skiing trips in any direction. Alternatively you can take a leisurely drive through the landscape on the road to Narvik in Norway.
Kiruna is the home of the Swedish Sami Parliament, and you can go on trips to explore the life of the Sami reindeer herders. There also daily excursions on which you can experience the thrills of dog sledding, or riding a snow scooter.
Kiruna town is itself in the news because there are plans to move the whole town in the future to accommodate the expanding iron ore mine which was the original reason for the town's existence. It is the world's largest underground mine and well worth a visit - tours are arranged daily.
From October to March there are opportunities to see the northern lights, and then in the summer we have the midnight sun, making every day as long as you wish it to be.
We are Lynne and Rolf, and we are happy to make any arrangements for your visit that would be of help.
