Experience the vast archipelago of Luleå.
The Luleå Archipelago is part of the archipelago of the Gulf of Bothnia, stretching from Skellefteå in the south to Haparanda by the Finnish border in the northeast. The Bothnian archipelago is the world’s largest brackish water archipelago. The water is neither salt nor fresh, which affects the flora and fauna. There are 1,312 ever-changing islands in the Luleå archipelago, shaped by weather and wind, midwinter cold and the magical summertime midnight light.
This vast archipelago, near the city, is well-preserved and tranquil. An experience for everyone and for all the senses. Those used to life in the archipelago often say that you leave everything behind on the mainland. Worldly things leave your mind and time itself slows down. Here, there is a fresh fragrance, an aroma of sea and not harbour. The weather shifts. Sun turns to summer rain and mirror-like waters become stormy seas. Boat trips to the larger islands are accessible and comfortable. On
On Sandön you will find the popular Klubbviken, with its two entirely different sides: one idyllic and simple with sandy beaches, restaurants and fun activities, one untouched and facing the sea. On the tour boat you can reach the outer rim of the archipelago with islands such as Rödkallen, Kluntarna, Småskär and Brändöskär – islands which have been inhabited for hundreds of years. Fishermen’s cabins, lighthouse keepers’ cottages, lighthouses and log chapels remain. Travelling with your own boat, you can dock at one of Luleå’s guest harbours or choose a natural harbour and have an entire island to yourself. The archipelago is wild, yet accessible, flat and safe for children. Here, you can let your mind run free. Hop from beach to
The archipelago is wild, yet accessible, flat and safe for children. Here, you can let your mind run free. Hop from beach to beach and walk across islands with your children. Fall asleep and wake up in a tent or cottage in the archipelago, to the sound of sea birds, waves and winds. Bright, tranquil nights or days of adventure. A day trip or island hopping. Experience the Luleå archipelago in your own chosen way.
