Luleå is situated in the popular Norrbotten County region of Sweden. Luleå is a coastal city with access to some sublime Nordic scenery. Visitors often come here for the Northern Lights or to absorb the scenery and culture of Swedish Lapland. Gammelstad Church Town is a popular reason to visit Luleå, and those who take up car hire in Luleå will find the town via a short drive north. The Church town is now a popular wedding venue and is a recognised UNESCO site. The icy expanses at Isbanen are always popular, forming part of the Lulea harbour. Those hiring a car in Lulea and heading north may be on the way to Abisko National Park.
