Driving in Gällivare

Driving in Gällivare’s region is the perfect way to explore Lapland’s raw wilderness and see northern animals such as moose and reindeers! Even though it can be a wonderful encounter, do not forget that they are a serious cause of road accidents, especially in winter! You’ll need to watch out for heavy snowfall, ice and strong winds during winter.

Also, don’t forget that your headlights must always be switched on, even in the daytime.
