This being Gällivare, the Chinese restaurant also has to diversify and serve pizzas, but at least they do their own Chinese food reasonably well and this place is popular both at lunch and in the evenings. They also don't seem to mind if people walk in with snowy ski boots.
Favorite Dish: Fish in sweet and sour sauce.

There are several handicraft shops but this is one of my favourites and in a central location, even if there are others with more Sami things. Here you will still find (expensive) Sami carved knives, silver jewellery and different reindeer art as well as more general handicraft such as textiles.
What to buy: Silver jewellery.
What to pay: Anything from SEK 250 and upwards. The most expensive Sami knives are around SEK 8000 but start at 3000...

In winter, you will see people transporting their snowmobiles between different tracks and their garages with special snowmobile trailers all over town...

If you feel like walking downhill from the Dundret hotel complex in winter (hey, you might want a waffle at the ski slope cafe or something, seeing as Dundret is closed...), just be aware that even though the walking path is signposted as a walking path, this makes no difference to the children (and their parents!) of the childrens' slope. They just use it as their "spare slope" from time to time. Watch out and hope that they do too and that they are somewhat experienced!

Luggage and bags: A backpack is recommended.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you go in wintertime, bring warm clothes. It can get very cold.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: In summertime, bring mosquito repellent. I recommend 'Mygga' but it doesn't work for everyone, so just try different brands until you find something that works for you.
