Discover Luleå

Experience the magic of Swedish Lapland



In the wild heart of Swedish Lapland, surrounded by snow-dusted forests and frozen seas, the town of Luleå is the ideal base for a vast array of thrilling winter activities, from husky sledding to hunting the Northern Lights. And, from December 2021, it will be more accessible than ever before, with the launch of a new direct flight from London Heathrow making it the perfect spot for a city break.

That said, this is no ordinary city-break destination. With vast forests and the icy seas of the Gulf of Bothnia on the doorstep, it's a destination made for adventure and a genuinely authentic Lapland experience. Head out on the ice, snowmobile around the islands & immerse yourself in the culture of the Samí and the unending culinary delights that this spectacular corner of Sweden has to offer.

Here, we celebrate the very best of this magnificent region, with a curated collection of itineraries, excursions and inspirational articles from our team award-winning destination specialists, who know Luleå and its surroundings like the back of their hands. Below, you'll find everything from action-packed city breaks to romantic stays in cosy log cabins to family adventures, deep in the wilderness, all of which can be tailored to your exact requirements.

What our clients say

This was my first cold holiday and was without question the best trip that either of us have ever been on. We had the best time flying around the woods and frozen lakes on a snowmobile! We went cross country skiing and then we went on a wilderness survival course – we made fire! We had an absolute blast and haven’t stopped talking about it – it was a trip of a lifetime and we're already talking about a return just to relive the experience again.

Graham

I can't fault Best Served Scandinavia, the holiday was top quality for money spent. The hotel served our needs and the excursion operators where fabulous and very knowledgeable in their respective fields. 10 out of 10

Trevor & family

The service received from start to finish was exceptional. We usually book independently but wanted to be sure we had trips that merged together well and Best Served did this brilliantly for us. Everything worked like clockwork. Travel, transfers, hotel – exceptional, trips just amazing – and the Aurora turned up every night! What more could we have asked for!

Ros

Norire was excellent. Great knowledge and very good communications at all stages of my booking. Guided me to a destination and package which was perfect. Excellent literature supplied which is unusual these days.
