Experience Skellefteå from home
We can offer tons of stuff to see and experience, perhaps more than you can manage if you're only here for the weekend. So to help you find the best activities for you and your family, we've decided to experience them and write about them! You'll find our articles here on this page, so feel free to roam around and read all about them! We hope you'll find something interesting (and maybe even book one or two!).

Pike fishing in SvanseleWe are in the small village Svansele, located on the northern bank of the Skellefteå river, 50 minutes drive from the coast and the river outlet. Here is a widespread wilderness with deep boreal coniferous forests and many beautiful lakes and streams. There is a lack of crowds, noise, and everyday demands. Svansele is the definition of calm.
Kayaking in Kåge bayThis route has not yet been determined, but we paddle out of the harbor, a bit upstream in the Kåge River that meets the sea in a delicious delta, before we turn out into the sea again and head towards Bastuholmen. I ask Emil to tell me a little about the bay. After all, it is his home ground.
Family getaway to White Mountain LodgeA cozy getaway. A quiet tranquil retreat. That's what this place is. A break from the everyday noise. The small village of Kalvträsk, located in the southwestern part of Skellefteå municipality, is like another world, and the Youngman family and the Eriksson-Havh family have longed for that world for several weeks.
Sleep in the old church townShe unlocked our little faluröda church cottage. Inside, time stood still; everything was so beautiful. In the window that stood open fluttered a sheer curtain. My shoulders immediately lowered, my heart rate went down. Here we could just.. be.
When you walk through the old church town full of cottages, you can almost see the community they create, the hope of the countryside and our beautiful north.
