Presentation:


Luleå Travel is travel agency and tour operator located in Luleå – Swedish Lapland. We offer attractive winter and summer programs presenting the highlights of Swedish Lapland: a magical, pristine landscape where you can steer sledges pulled by willing huskies, travel with snowshoes through forests, kayak in the Bothnian Gulf between the skerries of Luleå archipelago, and sleep in a hotel carved from ice or in a wooden nest high up in a three. We aim to reach deep into the vast Arctic expanse; during winter when the area is illuminated by one of the world’s most incredible natural phenomena, the Northern Lights, and in summer by the never-setting Arctic midnight sun.
