Cycle or drive through Europe's longest birch parkway

BURTRÄSK, Skellefteå

The birch parkway was planted in the 1930s and, over its 10 kilometres, runs through the beautiful villages of Bygdeträsk, Kvarnbyn, and Avaborg. The parkway is intertwined with another birch parkway via Grannäs through the village of Innansjön, which makes it a total of 16 km in length at Stora Bygdeträsket and around Göksjön lake. The cultural environment along the parkways is classified as a National Interest by the Swedish National Heritage Board. This also includes the village of Bygdeträskliden. 

Along the way you can visit Tormod Olsson’s picturesque art museum. The village of Kvarnbyn holds an art festival in the first week of July, which is also well worth visiting. 

Combine overnight stays in Edelvik’s Garden Bed & Breakfast with a car or bike ride through Europe’s longest birch parkway and around beautiful Göksjön lake. From Edelvik’s Garden, the route runs for a total of 36 km. Bicycles can be rented from Edelvik’s Garden where you can also buy a packed lunch for the trip.
