Skellefteå is Swedish Lapland’s southernmost outpost on the coast of the Bothnian Bay.

Here, the four seasons have their own, very distinct characters with breathtaking contrasts. This means cold, dark winters but also warm, bright summer nights. A special contrast can be found between urban living and the wilderness.

The Bjuröklubb lighthouse and pilot station is the gem of the coastline and the most popular destination in the Västerbotten region, boasting spectacular natural sights and fascinating history alike. The nature reserve is open to visitors, whether you simply want to enjoy the stunning vistas in the outdoors, the refreshments at the Café, or even spend the night at the pilot station.
