This is Skellefteå!

It’s the sunrise in the middle of the night and the adventure that begins at the end of the road. It's the wind in your hair by the outermost island. Where the sky meets the sea. The coffee in a wooden cup, the farmhouse cheese and the meetings with people who will change your life. It's the first rays of sunshine – and the last, and it' is everything in between - Welcome!
