This is Skellefteå!

What can you expect from Skellefteå this winter? Well, Quite a lot! There are obvious things such as picturesque snowfall, hot chocolate and thick slices of cheese in a sandwich out in the snow, and emotions running high at Skellefteå Kraft Arena where you can experience local ice hockey culture from head to toe. However, this winter brings fresh air, refreshing outdoor activities and of course lots of options for that too. We warmly welcome you to Skellefteå this winter!
