Sunbathing and sleigh rides
In these northern climes the differences between the seasons are enormous. In the summer, temperatures reach 30 degrees Celsius and then sun does not set at all. In the winter however, it gets bitterly cold and the temperature can drop to 30 degrees below zero. In the city of Piteå in the south of the province, these contrasts can be experienced at their most stark. Piteå is a centre of the wood industry, and in the summer, the harbour is busy. A little further away is Pite Havsbad, one of the most beautiful beaches in Sweden which one would be forgiven for thinking was located somewhere in the Caribbean. However, with the arrival of winter, the sea freezes, the harbour quietens down and instead dog-sledding races areheld, ice sculptures are created and the icebreaker Arctic Explorer guides guests on icebreaker safaris. Luleå, the largest city and administrative seat of the province of Norrbotten, lies just to the north. Here you can get to know the local culture and way of life whilst self-catering Sweden.
