Description

Each year at the end of January, the Kiruna Snow Festival puts on an exciting programme of winter events and entertainment. Skiing and ice skating competitions and reindeer and dog sled races fill these five days. Parties and feasts are held in giant igloos after dark, but the snow sculpting contest is the main event. A sparkling display of gravity-defying, artistically-rendered pieces gradually take shape over the five-day period and there are certainly no coal eyes and carrot noses involved. Located north of the Arctic Circle, Kiruna has a magical atmosphere and is a great place to learn more about the indigenous Sami people
