The other half dwell in a modern city; a seamless transition from urban to rural defining the good life in the subarctic – stretching from fine dining to cooling winter swims.Even for a Swede, Skellefteå is way up north. Here thegreat, virgin forests are dense, the waters wild and pure and the sun doesn’t set for 100 days in summer. Some might call Skellefteå remote and rural.

And we like to call this heaven on earth.Now, take this opportunity to explore Skellefteå together with one of our greeters and get your own personal experience of Swedish Lapland.
