Skellefteå 53.8 km away - for natural and historical reasons, much of skellefteå revolves around the river. This is why the river and its environs are an excellent way of getting to know the town.

A little like New York central park, if you will. You will have hardly left the Nordanå area before stepping into a bygone time and one of the town’s most well-known and well-preserved historical landmarks, Bonnstan. Dating back to the 17th century, this is the name used by the people of Skellefteå for the church village. Its 116 houses feature 392 well-preserved rooms that capture the flavour of times gone by
