Piteå is in Norrbotten in Swedish Lapland, a place of contrasts. Light and darkness, warmth and cold, the mountains and the archipelago. Sweden's highest water temperatures are often recorded at Pite Havsbad on the Nordic Riviera - hard to believe if you heard the ice crunching against the hull of an icebreaker a few months earlier. The sea ice of the Gulf of Bothnia also serves as an arena for skating, dog sledding and snow mobile safaris. Piteå is also appointed Sustainable City by the Swedish Energy Agency.
Summertime with lazy days on the beach is varied with activities and events for all ages. Piteå offers a rich and varied range of events.
