Kurravaara

Kurravaara

Kurravaara (Finnish and Swedish), Gurravárri (Sami) is a village in the northern Swedish part of Lapland and Tornetal, about 12 km north-northeast connected to Kiruna and 15 km upstream from Jukkasjärvi. The village lies between the eponymous mountain (604 m) in the south and the Kallovaara in the north in an indentation of widened Torneflusses Kallojärvi, on the north shore of the neighboring village Piksinranta. In the past, copper ore was mined on a geologically interesting interface between different parts of the Baltic Shield. Today the resort offers transport, accommodation and holiday accommodation on both sides of the river.
