Winter is a perfect time to indulge in your adventurous side, and there is no better way to feel alive than to visit Skellefteå, the southern outpost of Swedish Lapland. The area offers a range of activities right at your doorstep: snowmobiling through sparkling white woods, elk safaris and ice adventures in the Gulf of Bothnia. As the evening closes in, enjoy the warmth from great camp fires, hot saunas and outdoor wooden hot tubs. You may even get a glimpse of the amazing northern lights. Absolute silence.
Unquestionably three perfect days.
Start your visit with a journey through time. You are invited to see, try and taste some of the cultural and local traditions of Skellefteå and Swedish Lapland. Join a guided tour of the old village, hear about our history and soak up the atmosphere. The evening ends with a three-course dinner served in a setting of rare rustic charm.
An adventurous day out in our famus wilderness, and certainly one to remember. Cruise with Snowmobiles along sparkling white paths, through the vast sub-arctic wooded terrain. At the end of the day we enjoy a traditional swedish sauna and soak under the stars in heated wooden tubs.
Have you ever experienced the raw power of the sub-arctic sea up close? Welcome on board a genuine icebreaker. Watch the ice on the Gulf of Bothnia as it cracks, and is crushed to pieces, or challenge each other to jump in the dark waters.
