Description of the guided mine tour from the arranger: "The mine in Kiruna is the world’s largest underground iron-stone mine. It is a fascinating operation where the iron-stone is mined far below the surface using remotely operated machines and driverless trains. One of the best attractions in Sweden, the LKAB’s Visitor Centre, is located here – a mine that the Lonely Planet international guide book gave its highest rating".
