A holiday to Swedish Lapland would not be complete without a visit to Luleå. Here you can explore the Luleå Archipelago Pack Ice (islands surrounded by frozen sea) by snowmobile and even visit the island of Brändöskär in the outermost archipelago.
A Northern Lights hunt is a must in Luleå, with the Aurora frequently dancing across the sky. Luleå even has its very own Aurora Safari Camp, which is definitely worth a visit. Luleå is home to the Gammelstad Church Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Gammelstad Church Town prides itself on being a well-preserved example of the type of town common throughout Swedish Lapland in earlier times.
More recently, people from all over the world have visited Luleå to spend a night at The Treehotel in nearby Harads. The Treehotel offers its guests the opportunity to spend the night in its uniquely designed rooms built amongst the trees. ‘The Birds Nest’ has to be one of our favourites.
If this isn’t enough to keep you entertained during your time in Luleå you may wish to spend time listening to music, produced by artistically crafted ice instruments. Luleå ice concert hall is constructed entirely out of snow and certainly is a once in a lifetime experience.
