Sensommar. A words that only have positive connotations if you ask us. It means late summer in Swedish. The warm air is still here but the suns sets a little earlier, making the nights pleasant and cozy. Late summer in Luleå has lots to offer, and according to many of the locals this is the best part of summer. The water is warmer, having had all of July to heat up and the woods are green, lush and full of berries.

Sweden has something called the Right of Public Access which means that as long as you don't disturb or destroy everyone has the right the wander around the countryside in Sweden with no fear of trespassing. So grab a basket or paper bag and head out into the forest. Here you can find blueberries, lingonberries, and if you're lucky the delicious cloudberry, or the small but tasteful arctic bramble.
