If you wish to get closer to the scenic nature of Luleå it’s a good idea to rent a cottage. Around Luleå, there are several places where you can find reasonably priced rental accommodation for yourself and your company.
On the mainland, there are several summery locations where cottages to rent can be found. At First Camp, right next to the Lule River with a view over all of the city centre, there are a large number of cottages for rent. First Camp is found in the Karlsvik locality of Luleå where many of the most popular bathing beaches lie and the shopping district Storheden is also close by. Also in the vicinity you will find mini golf courses, padel and tennis courts and a railroad museum. A stone’s throw from First Camp lies Örnvik, offering a facility with similar attractions – a scenic environment, close to bathing beaches and shopping opportunities. These two campsites are also easy to reach if you travel by car – they are both located close to the E4 motorway. Another tip is to go approximately 20 kilometres north of Luleå, to Brändö Konferens och Fritidsby (Conference and Leisure Village). The facility is popular amongst guests both foreign and domestic. Here you will find many activities to make your stay an even better one – in summer as well as in winter. There are too many to list them all here but thankfully they have a website with an up-to-date list of activities. If we are to give recommendations, a hovercraft tour in winter is magical and in summer kayaking around the idyllic coastline of Brändön is something you simply must not miss. There is something for everyone at Brändön – beautiful bathing beaches and a newly built lounge where you can relax and recover.
