Welcome to Skellefteå in Swedish Lapland

Everywhere in Swedish Lapland nature is just around the corner, and Skellefteå is no different. The Skellefteå River flows straight through the city centre and in the surrounding area there are vast forests, lakes, cliffs, marshes and open spaces which all combine to create easily accessible and fantastic driving and wilderness experiences. During the cold and snowy winters the amazing northern lights can sometimes be seen brightening otherwise dark skies. Skellefteå is only a 15 minute drive from the airport.

Take a look at our suggested Itinerary below:

Why you should consider Swedish Lapland

We would gamble that very few people have visited this beautiful part of Swedish Lapland and – as it is still relatively undiscovered – we have been able to produce a programme that will excite, exhilarate and leave you wanting more.   But, if you would prefer to drive in warmer climes, take a look at our Super Cars & Sumptuous Food programme in sunny Italy!
