Gällivare does have something more to offer than its endless mines that are part of the most important source of iron in Europe. Although the city probably does not bear anymore the charm it may have had, there are a few interesting historical tracks in the old town worth exploring, including those in the nearby town of Malmberget (5 km north), where the mines are located. The Homestead Museum offers a good insight into both the history of the town and the surrounding forested area. Of course, this is your chance par excellence to chase the northern light and experience the unspoilt scenery. During winter time, it's an excellent place to go to when you want to indulge in whatever type of sports. The nearby hill of Dundret has an elevation of 820 metres, with good views.
