We stayed at Ripan for 5 great days and nights. Never a minute not enjoyed! Whiel quite cold in January, there was more to do that time would allow. Meals at the Ripan were great. I hate the 200 word minimum review requirement.

Not sure why they call it a camp, it was far nicer than any camp I have ever been. There was 3 of us "camping" in Giron chalet. It was a very nice spacious room for the 3 of us. There was a separate room with 2 bunk beds and in the main room 2 beds put together to make...

We stayed in a 2-room cabin, with a kitchenette. Very nice beds. The breakfast buffet was good and not too far from our cabin. The restaurant was good as well, with local dishes. The spa is somewhat small, but it served our purpose of relaxing a bit after a long hike, and it wasn't overrun at the time. Most things...

The cottage was comfortable and warm but not particularly spacious. We did not eat here but the restaurant looked nice. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We stayed here for one night only and it was on the outskirt of Kiruna - we had a car which was essential.

It's located outside the city, but one can walk to the city within a 15 minutes walk. The area is very quiet and calm. Chalets were nice and warm with a good view.

Cosy place. Serene surroundings. Spacious rooms for family.Majority of the rooms have good scenic view. A bit away from the center so car is a must. Can also view northern lights a little walk from the hotel.

It's in a wonderful location within walking distance of Kiruna town centre and has excellent facilities. The breakfast buffet is one of the best I've had in Sweden and the restaurant does a good evening meal. The accommodation is in timber chalets which are warm, clean, but not very big. There are dozens of trips to explore the beautiful environment...

Just returned from a wonderful stay at Camp Ripan. We had a very cosy cabin and the restaurant was excellent. We had a very warm welcome and all the staff were lovely and very helpful. All the meals were delicious - reindeer, moose and cod. The breakfasts were superb and I am missing the sausages. We went with 'Simply Sweden'...
