The town of Kiruna in northern Sweden plays host to a fantastic annual event which gives visitors the chance to celebrate the abundance of its snowy natural surroundings.
From January 27th to February 1st next year the 24th Kiruna Snow Festival will see visitors from far and wide journey to this quiet little corner of Swedish Lapland, well into the imposing frozen expanses of the Arctic Circle.
As befits an event so attuned to the snow-covered wilderness there are a range of activities on offer such as ski-jumping and sled racing, among a host of other outdoor and indoor goings-on.
Lucky visitors might also be able to glimpse the spectacular natural phenomenon of the aurora borealis – or ‘northern lights’ – from this beautiful location, making this a truly unique attraction.
Aurora borealis is an natural phenomenon formed by a complex set of scientific conditions in the upper reaches of the Earth’s atmosphere.
