Spend the night

The vast archipelago, shaped by weather and wind, midwinter cold and the magical summertime midnight light, is well-­preserved and tranquil. An experience for everyone and for all the senses.

The Luleå archipelago is part of the archipelago of the Gulf of Bothnia, stretching from Skellefteå in the south to Haparanda by the Finnish border in the northeast. The Bothnian archipelago is the world’s largest brackish water archipelago. The water is neither salt nor fresh, which affects the flora and fauna. 

There are 1,312 ever­changing islands in the Luleå archipelago, shaped by weather and wind, midwinter cold and the magical summertime midnight light. This vast archipelago, near the city, is well­preserved and tranquil. An experience for everyone and for all the senses. Those used to life in the archipelago often say that you leave everything behind on the main­ land. Worldly things leave your mind and time itself slows down.

Here, there is a fresh fragrance, an aroma of sea and not harbour. The weather shifts. Sun turns to summer rain and mirror­like waters become stormy seas.
