Explore a snowy winter wonderland with an array of activities, northern lights and friendly locals. The small Swedish town of Piteå is located two hours south of the Arctic Circle and you can hardly go wrong with an active holiday here. Many attractions in Piteå involve water in solid or fluid form, such as the unusual icebreaker tour at sea. “It is powerful to see and understand the power of the weather gods and the arctic environment we live in,” says Katarina Johansson, head of the tourist information centre in Piteå.
