Västerbotten calling! In Umeå, visitors are dazzled by its ﬁne cuisine which can compete with the best restaurants from around the world, not to mention the northernmost opera on the planet and the fantastic gallery and a landscape which enchants nature lovers right in front of the delightful town. It’s a fascinating mix which is just a 50-minute plane journey north of Stockholm.
Close to Umeå, you can also fulfil your dream of going dog sledging. The husky tour comes neither with a chauffeur nor a programme. This is an active adventure which requires a little bit of courage. Each participant steers his or her own sledge. Before you start, you get to know the dogs and the most important piece of equipment on the sledge: the brake. Afterwards, you’ll travel through the magical nature of northern Sweden – accompanied by a professional musher.
For the well-earned refreshments in the evening, we’ll book a table for you at a highly-recommended restaurant. Umeå is well-known for its creative cuisine. Several restaurants have made it into the renowned “White Guide”, Sweden’s answer to the Michelin Guide. On the way back to the hotel, you can take a break and have a home-brewed beer in “Lottas Krog” or in the “Open/Closed” bar: Emil Åreng – awarded the best Scandinavian bar master in 2017 – ranks amongst the absolute masters of his trade. With a bit of luck, you might even see a first-class light show during your stay: aurora borealis – the northern lights.
And many other adventures are just around the corner: Pedalling hard during a fatbike tour. In Björnlandet National Park, strolls through the lonely forests and lakelands beckon. A visit to the Umeå gallery is another exciting experience – contemporary Swedish and international art is on display. And you can experience first-class ice-hockey in various places, for example in Umeå, Skellefteå and Örnsköldsvik.
