Where quality of life meets the green revolution

A picturesque city situated on the northeast coast of Sweden, surrounded by the Baltic sea, vast forests, and endless hiking and ski trails. Luleå is where the green industries of the Swedish Arctic go global via one of the largest ports in the Nordics. And if that's not enough to make you want to visit, it also happens to be surrounded by more than 1300 islands that make up its breathtaking archipelago.

We pride ourselves on our sustainable cities, where you can oftentimes walk to your destination faster than you can drive. A life in northern Sweden is a life free of the tedium of long commutes.
