    Staying overnight in the Luleå archipelago

    Walk in old growth forest illuminated by the midnight sun. Listen to the sound of the seabirds, the wind and the waves. Cut wood, feel the warmth from the stove and cook on an open fire. Have a sauna and a bath in brackish, clear water under the light blue evening sky. Stay overnight in a cottage and experience this vast, unique archipelago for real.
