Bike trail around Göksjön lake

BURTRÄSK, Skellefteå

On a perfect summer day when it is neither too hot nor too cold, you can borrow a bike and explore the majestic countryside around Burträsk. And if you opt for the route around Göksjön lake, you will discover everything from artworks to Europe’s longest birch parkway along the 23 km bike trail.

The route is 23 km long and runs through Europe’s longest birch parkway, which spans a whole 8 km. If you are unable to cycle, exploring the magical countryside by car can also be a fantastic experience. Take a packed lunch with you and have a picnic along the way amongst the beautiful surroundings. If you cycle the whole trail, take the chance to visit the Torfrid Olsson Art Museum and make the village of Kvarnbyn one your stops. If you arrive on the right day, you will be able to experience Kvarnbyn’s art festival held in the first week of July.
