Kingdom of cheese
So it might sound a bit corny, but the trademark cheese of the area is something you have to try. Don't stop at just the cheese - they also make a wonderful pie filled with Västerbotten cheese. / Anna-Karin, ground crew
STF Vandrarhem Skellefteå
The hostel is in an old wooden building just above the river. It's a 25-minute walk to city center, but take your time here. Walk along the river, enjoy the surroundings and the tranquility. /Torbjörn

There is a river that runs through the town and its close to the sea. We rented kayaks and spent a day exploring the coastline and small islands. The Swedish Allemänsratten, or the right of public access, makes it possible to go ashore pretty much anywhere. /Anders
