Skellefteå Windbreaks and Outdoor Grilling


A warm cup of coffee, grilled sausage or just a moment to enjoy the outdoors. Around Skellefteå there are windbreaks and barbecue places that you can visit. Here are some tips on barbecue areas and windshields you can visit. To some of these places wood is delivered by the municipality and associations that are available to you who want to light a fire on site. If you want to be on the safe side when you have planned an excursion and want to light a fire, it can be good to bring your own firewood, as we can not guarantee that the firewood will not run out once you get to the place. The places marked on the map are the places where firewood is delivered.

On the map are all windbreaks and rest areas around the entire Skellefteå municipality, the symbols that are marked in green on the map are the places where wood is delivered. The wood is delivered about 1-2 times a week and below is a short description of some of the areas where wood is delivered.

Sunnanå - Lejonströmsbron 
In close proximity to the south side of the Lejonströmsbron, there are two windbreaks, one if you walk along the beach promenade to the east and one to the west.
