Welcome to the dark and cold!

When Skellefteå is softly embedded in a thick cover of white snow, our subarctic everyday life is characterised by a seamless transition between night and day. It makes little difference whether we put on our forest skis, turn on our head torches and go for full moonwalks in a silver shimmering old-growth forest, or walk out on a snow-covered pine heath with the warming winter sun on your back.
