Autumn FALL IN LOVE WITH THE

Camp Ripan - We bring Kiruna to you · www.ripan.se


AUTUMN

– The season of intense serenity The sun is never as intensely golden as when summer passes into the fall. The air is never as clear and high as when the leaves slowly drop to the ground. Nature’s pantry is never as well-stocked as when the first veils of mist lay over marshes and fields.

Autumn is a marvelous season. Strong and weak. Colorful and nude. Light and dark. Warm and chilly. Embracement and rejection. All and nothing, at the same time. Welcome to Kiruna and Camp Ripan!


CAMP RIPAN – in the heart of Kiruna

Autumn in Kiruna is special, in a few days the leaves can have blown off the trees, yet we can still enjoy the season’s colours for weeks. Our unpredictable mountain weather determines the pace of the fall. No matter what happens, it’s a wonderful season that we want to share with you. Experience some lovely autumn days at Camp Ripan with great food, amazing experiences and relaxing hot tubs. Take walks in our beautiful low-mountain surroundings and enjoy the views. If it’s a clear day, you can see the whole of Kebnekaise towards the

west. Visit the ICEHOTEL 365, open all year round, with its beautiful ice sculptures and art, or why not visit a Sami exhibit and learn more about our indigenous people? Although there is a lot to do, autumn is also a perfect opportunity to unwind after an intense summer and to replenish the energy stores ahead of the coming winter. And who knows, if the weather’s powers are with us maybe the northern lights are ready to perform? Even at the end of August, the first displays begin to show off on our latitudes.

AUTUMN

The Aurora season


An incredibly beautiful and colorful northern lights display captured by photographer Anders Nilsson, the picture was taken one autumn night at Altajärvis beach, a couple of miles outside of Kiruna. The city is seen as a shining jewel in the right edge of the image. The aurora occurs throughout the year but it is of course best seen when the darkness has come and there is clear weather. Here in Kiruna, the conditions for northern lights are

most favorable from the end of August until the middle of April. The temperature itself has no significance but usually it’s clearer the cooler it is. Even in central Kiruna you can see northern lights and here at Camp Ripan we have down-facing street lamps to make the sky appear clearer and the northern lights seem brighter.

The night sky

Northern Sweden is a great place to study the starry sky. In our sparsely populated countryside there is not much light affecting the sky so you do not have to walk hundreds of meters outside the city center to experience a magnificent spectacle of stars and planets.
