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!

“A must to see, if you stay in Kiruna”
Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

It is wonderful! Never been in a mine that huge, where you will be travelled by bus to the 540m level.
Of course, you will not see where the actual iron ore is bagged, but this is understandable because of the safely.
This is a must to do, if you stay in Kiruna.
Even the high price for this tour is it worth. :-)

“Interesting, but (almost) a publicity tour”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

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.

“Unable to see”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

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.
