“We know Kiruna, we know the history and we know all about the moving of the city. We want you to really feel that you’re in Kiruna,” says Frida Lind-Oja, owner and marketing director of Camp Ripan. The site just outside Kiruna was previously owned by the local municipality and quite undeveloped when, in 2002, the Lind family decided to invest and develop. Steeped in the rich cultures of the Sami, the Tornedalian Finns and of course the Swedish, introduced to the area with the navvies and much due to the local mine, the area has a great deal to explore – especially now that a greater part of Kiruna is being moved east due to ground deformations as a result of the mining work.
