► City:

A centre for growth, Luleå is situated in the province of Norrbotten that spans a quarter of Sweden´s surface area.
Luleå is truly a place of contrast. You will be surprised by the international atmosphere while at the same time the closeness to unspoiled countryside opens up for unlimited possibilities. Luleå can offer you action-packed adventure but here you can also enjoy tranquillity, peace and quiet. In winter the town is clothed in white but in summer it´s embraced by sun and heat.  Luleå, the town by the sea and part of Swedish Lapland.
