Camp Ripan was always going to struggle given we d spent the previous 2 nights at the outstanding Hotel Rival in Stockholm, so, it was with trepidation that I opened the door of the 1950s Butlins style chalet flanked by log burdened trailer and a snowdrift, but hey we're in the Arctic circle so as long as the heating works everythings rosy...
..and thankfully it did, the room, functional..and after getting over the initial plainess and sparseness it was actually ok - warm, comfortable and a great shower.
Breakfast was pretty good and I believe the restuarnt was one of the better in Kiruna. Location wise abit of a hike into centre Kiruna, but a nice one all the same. Other stuff - nice spa (pay extra) and main desk staff were OK(ish) but not particulaly helpful.
Overall it served a purpose, I guess one of the better options given the lack of choice in the area but given what they charge they need to try harder.
