Four hours on the glistening ice and islands of the Luleå archipelago on a snowmobile!

Along the way the guide will tell you about the surroundings and about life in the northern wilderness. The participants are offered hot beverages and a chance to try ice-fishing. The destination of the tour is the island Brändöskär in the outermost archipelago, an idyllic fishing village dating from the 17th century. The chapel dated from 1774 and one of the fishing-huts will be visited.

Outside the island is the frozen Bothnian bay with its seemingly endless fields of pack ice and snow. Some years the blue ice of the sea piles up into formations about 10 metres high – a mighty experience! The lunch for the day is cooked over an open fire.

This 4-hour activity available from the beginning of January – end of March includes:

  • Snowmobile suit, boots, socks, warm gloves, fleece suit and helmet
  • Lunch and hot beverages
