Gellivare is situated 100 km north of the Arctic Circle and officially recognized as the high-tech community with wilderness around the corner. Our mountain Dundret is known for being the first to offer skiing from the beginning of November to the last weekend of April.
Gellivare is also the mining capital of Europe, situated in the very north of Sweden. This region is better known as Lapland, and together with the mining industry tourism is the main business here. Gellivare offers amazing outdoor possibilities all year around, unlike anything else in the world. The air is clean and crisp. We have snow for five months and in summer the sun shines all through the night! Skiing, hiking, hunting, berry picking, snowmobile riding, cross country skiing and fishing are all common leisure activities just around the corner.
