One of Sweden’s largest ice climbing areas is to be found in Stora Sjöfallet National Park near Suorva Dam, towards the head of the Lule River valley, inland from Gällivare. The routes vary in length from c. 20 m to c. 400 m. Stora Sjöfallet is some 3 hours’ drive south of Kiruna. There are numerous long ice routes, mostly on the northern side of the valley, between Suorva Dam and the STF (Swedish Tourist Association) hut at Vakkotavare.
Above info and route description is copied from: http://kiwiclimber.se/iceclimbing/iceguide/iceguide.pdf
NB: The grades in above guide are usually, not always, on the stiff side. The hard ice and cold temps don´t really makes it easier either...
