The Skelleftea Region's nature highlights the contrasts between the wild and the tranquil, offering something for all five of your senses ranging from northern lights to midnight sun. Skelleftea is more than a coastal Norrland gem; it is a seaside resort in the summer, ski resort in the winter and entertainment centre all year round. It is also the gateway to a region full of exciting and memorable sights, activities and destinations. The monumental Skelleftea Church is the largest and most beautiful building in the north of Sweden. Other interesting sights are: the Wilderness Mine in Varutrask - one of the richest places in the world in minerals and Rismyrliden - Vasterbotten's only preserved new building from the beginning of the 19th century. Its proximity to real winters and coastal summers with lots of sunshine make Skelleftea a good place to spend a peaceful vacation.
