We can help you with recommendations for places to stay, to eat, to see and activities. You can buy train and regional bus tickets, of course we also sell fishing permits within local surroundings. In our shop you can find products made from our local craftsmen and much more. We also offer luggage storage at a cost, available during our opening hours. If you want to get in contact with us you can either call, e-mail or visit us at our Tourist Center located inside the railway station in Gällivare.
When you visit us in the store we would like to recommend you to have a look upstairs, where there is an exhibition about the World Heritage Site Laponia. The exhibition tells the history of Laponia and the people who have lived here for thousands of years. Gällivare is home to two mines: Aitik, an open pit mine and Swedens largest copper mine, and LKAB, the world’s second largest underground iron ore mine.
If you have any questions or would like to give us some feedback don’t hesitate to contact or visit us, see contact information to the right (below for mobile phone users).
Staff working at Gällivare Tourist Center
From 2018, Ávki is responsible for the operation of Gällivare Turistcenter. Ávki is an engaged economic agency and a development company founded in 2011 by Unna Tjerusj and Gällivare skogssameby. We run projects and offer services in different areas for our customers located in Gällivare’s vicinity, faraway areas in the region and in Sápmi. Our customers are local businesses, reindeer herding companies and Sami communities, public operations, road associations, foundations, small forest owners and private individuals.
Equality & diversity
By 2015, the UN General Assembly adopted the historic resolution Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. As part of Ávki’s contribution to sustainable development, we have chosen to focus primarily on equality, decent working conditions and economic growth, sustainable consumption and production and ecosystems and biodiversity.
At Ávki, gender equality is more than a concept, for us it is the prerequisite for innovation, job satisfaction and competitiveness. People are our most important resource and we have a clear focus on youth and gender equality and diversity in everything we do.
