Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Come along to the world’s largest underground iron-ore mine. We go by bus directly from the Tourist Center into the mountain and down to the show mine LKAB’s Visitor Centre at level 540 metres. Here in Kiruna much revolves around our mine. The guide will talk about modern mining and how it can cause a whole town to be moved. Coffee and cookies will be served in the cafe. A warm welcome!

It is the largest Iron Mine in the World so it was great to reach down under earthlevel! So cool! The guides were excellent!

The guided tour to see this big mine takes around 2-3 hours and is an interesting experience, so if you have spare time at Kiruna and are interested in geology and the experience to be "down in the earth", take the Chance. On the other hand, I felt a bit like at a promotion tour for the mining company. The tourguides are friendly though, as (almost) all people in Kiruna.

In order to tour the mine, one has to book ahead and be lucky enough that 14 others have also booked ahead or the tour will be cancelled. Unfortunately, we were not able to explore during our stay.

an impressive site
an impressive trip down down inside the Earth, but...
the real action is not shown. you can see some in video, but even in a room in the visitor centre you can see exactly the same.
maybe you find exciting to know where you are at that moment, but it's not a direct experience.

other mines like Sala SIlvergruva (also in Sweden) are offering a more "real" experience
