“Perfect Camping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

We were there on our InterrailTrip in August 2013. This was the best Camping on our Tour.

Clean Service Building with a great kitchen and SAUNA (('It's all inclusive in Gällivare', the woman at the reception).
Beautiful location at the riverside where you can go fishing and near the mountain Dundret, a great nature reserve, perfect for hiking daytrips. It is said that one can see over 11% of the survace of Sweden from the peaks.
The ground of the Camping was very soft and there is grass everywhere.
Supermarket and City Centre can be reached within 15 a minutes walk.
Camping there was perfect for us, beacause we could easily leave in the morning to head for the famous Inlandsbanan.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2013

We stayed there in full winter and it sometimes seemed a quiet white desert. I think people would rather stay in this kind of place in summertime, but spending some winter days overthere was also a grateful experience. Along with quietness, it is also possible to see the northern lights (aurora borealis), but we were not fortunate to do so (sky activity was low when we were there and there was a very occasional greenish shadows in the sky). Anyway, that's a charming city, settled in a very beautiful region. Gällivare Camping wooden cabins are relatively new, cozy, tidy, self-contained (with microwave oven, top cook, dishes, cutlery, etc) and have toilet and shower facilities. You are advised to bring your own bed sheet and leave the cabin as tidy as you reached it, otherwise there will be an extra charge; but do not worry, that's not a trap, it is clearly advertised and it just reflects the practical Swedish way of living. All cabins are by the river shore, amidst a lovely landscape. Rates are not that cheap, but honest regarding Swedish standards: we payed around 100 EUR per night for a (up to) 4 people cabin. Gällivare Camping is about 1 km from the train station, from where you can have easy conections to Stockholm or Gothenburg.
