Located in the very north of Sweden, the municipality of Kiruna is the largest in area (half the size of Switzerland) but with only 25,000 inhabitants it's not very densely populated. Most of the people live in the mining town of Kiruna, set not far from Mount Kebnekaise, Sweden's highest mountain at 2,117 metres above sea level.

The area is great for fishing in the summer. There are more than 6,000 lakes in Kiruna and seven rivers run through the municipality.
