If you want to extend your stay and make the most of your trip, why not try the following:
Skiing – For those wanting to try something new then why not do the cross country skiis or snowshoes and spend half a day doing something a little different. There is a downhill track in Kiruna too!
Ice Fishing – Drilling a hole through the outer skin of a frozen river or lake and dangling a rod into the void brings an anticipation and possibly dinner too!
Overnight stay at the Ice Hotel – A night in an ice suite at the Ice Hotel is quite an experience – at -5, surrounded by ice art and cocooned in your Arctic sleeping bag there is no other hotel like it!
A night in Stockholm at ABBA's Rival Hotel – A mini city break in Stockholm either on the way up to Kiruna or on the way back. The ABBA owned Rival Hotel makes a good stop.
Orcas in the Norwegian Fjords – Between end of November and early January the orcas come into Tysfjord to hunt for herring. This extension to a 3 night stay would allow you to travel into the Fjords and using Zodiacs get up close to these fantastic mammals.
