Come visit us!


Gällivare Lapland Airport (GEV) is located 100 km inside (that’s north of!) the Arctic Circle and is a 2-hour hop from Stockholm Arlanda International Airport (ARN).  Flying time is actually less than 2 hours, but there is a short 20-minute stop for fueling at Arvidsjaur Airport. Downtown Gällivare is just a 10-minute drive from the airport. 

The airport has car rental desks run by Avis, Hertz, and Europcar. Alternatively, Gällivare Taxi has cars at the airport and will take you into town for approximately 50 euros. 

Alternative 1: Fly from Arlanda directly to Kiruna (1 hour and 25 minutes flying time; 3 flights a day) and drive south to Gällivare in an hour. 

Alternative 2: Fly from Arlanda directly to Luleå (1 hour and 10 minutes flying time; 14 flights a day) and drive north 2.5 hours to Gällivare. (BONUS: with this route you can take a break after 145 km and observe the crossing point of the Arctic Circle!)

The overnight train departing from Stockholm C is another popular option. The journey time is approximately 15 – 20 hours depending on changes.


Sweden is deceptively long, and you will be looking at 1000 - 1200 km from any of the southern capital cities of Stockholm, Helsinki, or Oslo. Malmö and Gothenburg are 1700 - 1800 km away. Google Maps and some fresh coffee will be worthwhile companions on this choice of travel. 

You are going to see some absolutely stunning scenery along the way, and hopefully serendipitous adventures on your trek north!
