We went to the northern part of Sweden to try to see the Aurora. One of the nights up north we decided to spend at CampAdventure in Kiruna. You have to book a snowmobile tour with them to book a cabin. We wanted a snowmobile trip anyway so this worked out.

Overall we had an awesome time in the cabin and on the snowmobile trip, but there could be some improvements for next time.

---Snowmobile Tour
I was in email communication with Brice from the CampAdventure staff up until the day before our arrival. We had arranged to join the 9:30am Snowmobile tour on a Saturday morning. When we showed up at ~9:25am, there was no one around. A few minutes later we saw Jonathan who was driving out in a van to go on a Moose Safari and he said he would be back in the afternoon to give us a tour then.

When we did get our tour, we found Jonathan to be an awesome tour guide. We opted for the slightly longer/more expensive "advanced" tour which takes you into some deep snow and different trails. Really awesome experience to be flying through the woods on snowmobiles. We ended up at a couple nice lookout points as well. Note that insurance is optional but extra on the snowmobiles.

Sandwiches/drinks were provided on the tour which was nice. The snowmobiles seemed to be pretty high quality and were comfortable to ride on (this was our first snowmobile experience so we don't have anything to compare to).

They also provide fully body snow suits and boots which were incredibly warm and protective. They have gloves you can borrow as well. Just make sure you bring a full face mask/balaclava.

---Cabin/Everything Else
There was also some confusion about which cabin we were supposed to be in when we got there. To be fair, we showed up at 9:30am (expecting the snowmobile tour). When we were told that would have to happen in the afternoon, we tried calling the CampAdventure number which rang through to Tomas who was in the main house on the property. He invited us in to figure out what was going on. He eventually got us situated in the correct cabin even though check-in is in the afternoon.

The cabin was warm and relatively comfortable with five beds, a couch, and a detached bathroom/sauna. Four of the beds were stacked as bunk beds right next to each other. You'd have to climb over bed number one to get to bed number two (same deal on the upper bunks). It was only three of us there so it didn't make a big deal to us but would have been a pain had we had more people.

You have to get boots on and walk outside to the bathroom. It's private and attached to the cabin, there's just no indoor entrance. Other cabins might be setup differently and they're apparently planning on rebuilding the entire cabin over the summer.

It was mostly clean when we arrived (couple bags of recycling/trash still had to be taken out) and we were provided sheets. The cabins are self-service so you'll need to clean them yourself on your way out.

---Location
It's not too far away from town and super close to the Ice Hotel if you want to check that out.

Room Tip: Cabins are cramped if you book the smallest size to fit your group. I would recommend staying in the largest cabin available.

I was in CampAdventure for 5 days with thee friends.

The experience was great.

The cabins where well equipped and warm. The wifi signal was very poor though.

The location was perfect. Located just beside the river and right after crossing it you find a little village with the Ice Hotel, a Coops shop and more.

The staff in CampAdventure are very nice. We specially treated with Tomas and Daniel. Great people.

The activities that CampAdventure offers are great. We did 3:
- Ice Fishing: We took the snowmobiles and went to a part of the river where we Ice fished for an hour or so while we had coffee. We didn't catch anything though XD.
- SnowMobiles 60 Km. This was spectacular. A snobmible trip into the wild passing through woods, over rivers and lakes with amazing views. It was the best activity.
- Dogsleds at night time. It was so fun to drive the dogsleds and it is a must for me BUT... the dogsleds company is a subcontract company of CampAdventure and their clothing are not as good as CampAdventure. You could feel the cold in your feet as soon as you put your feet on the snow. Bad boots and bad gloves. It was -20 degrees and it was super painful. It killed the fun for so many people. I enjoyed it yet though.

- Northern lights: We were so lucky and could watch them every night. Perfect location to see them.

Overall: Super nice experience and I'm thinking to go back in summer time since the place is completely different by then and still spectacular.

Thanks a lot CampAdventure for this incredible experience.

We are a group of french students coming to Kiruna in order to visit the Ice Hotel and discover Lapland!
We were 31 students at Tomas camp and we all agree to say it's a really nice place, with the confort we need and a wonderfull assistance!
Tomas and his team are plaisant, available, and really flexible.
We have nothing but good memories to bring back to France, and we thank them for that's.
