Did you know that the Gulf of Bothnia which surrounds Luleå and the Lule River both freeze during the winter? Yes, it’s really true. The sea ice turns into a gigantic events arena for winter adventures both big and small.
The ice track that is ploughed on the ice surrounding the city centre, from the North to the South harbour, is loved by everyone, locals and visitors alike. Join the people milling about on sunny winter days, when everyone goes outside to go skating, kicksledding, snowmobiling, walking, grilling sausages, sunbathing, hanging out and just enjoying life together.
In cooperation with Luleå Council, companies offer free public use of kicksleds so that you can get out onto the ice track surrounding the city. The kicksleds are lined up at the North and South harbours and there are also “kicksled parking lots” in other places where the kicksleds can be picked up and dropped off.
