SAFETY MOOSE HUNTING SEASON
The moose hunting season will take place between 7th September and 27th September 2020, and between 12th October 12, 2020, and 31st January 2021. You can still take a walk in the woods, but it’s a good idea to wear bright clothes that stand out from the colours of the forest, for example, a red sweater or red hat. Usually, most of the hunters are in the forest during the first weeks of September. For your own safety, make them aware that you are nearby without disturbing the ongoing hunt.
There are (almost) endless possibilities when it comes to activities in Skellefteå, we offer a wide variety to satisfy every taste and every one. Enjoy art exhibitions, improv theater, climb a mountain, see a moose. This coastal town in Swedish Lapland is full of experiences whether you like the great outdoors or rather stays inside.
