High up on Sweden’s eastern coast, the town of Skellefteå stands at the head of a fjord leading to the Gulf of Bothnia. The E4 major trunk road heading to Finland passes through the town. It’s a city founded on mining and industry, and which has its own airport, five miles south of the town. Hiring a car is a good idea amid such interesting landscapes. The best attractions of the area include the fjord itself and the Baltic coast but also look out for the boat museum at Stackgronnan, which can be reached by a public raft trip from Älvsnabben, and the impressive nature reserves at Bjuröklubb and Vitbergen.
