Silversea Luxury Cruises A Lulea

Lulea

Believe it or not, but this quiet city where reindeer migrate and the Northern Lights ripple, is a global centre of innovation, technology and education. Close to the Arctic Circle, Facebook chose Lulea as the site for its first data centre outside of the US, praising the city's natural cooling, clean energy, and passion for innovation. The University and Science Park here are experiencing unprecedented demand as a result, and while the future looks bright, the city’s past is just as rich in history.

Explore the spectacular natural beauty of Luleå and its surrounds during this panoramic, full-day sightseeing excursion.


Luleå, Northern and Southern Harbours, City Centre, Governour's Mansion, Town Hall, Cathedral

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Gammelstad. En route, take a short orientation tour of Luleå. Situated close to the Arctic Circle, Luleå is the administrative centre of Sweden's northernmost region. This growing district has a variety of industries, and is the motor of development for northern Sweden. Along the way, pass by the Southern Harbour, which has been turned into residential areas, and the Northern Harbour, where Sweden's four icebreakers have their home port. In the heart of the city pass by Residensgatan, where the county governor resides in a charming mansion with an adjacent park. From here, drive along the beautiful City Park, and past the Town Hall and Cathedral.

Gammelstad Church Town, Medieval Church, Church Cottages

Next, your drive continues north to the Gammelstad Church Town, an UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of the best-preserved church town in northern Scandinavia. The church, built in the 1490s, is Norrbotten's largest medieval church and surrounded by 408 church cottages. Upon arrival, take a short, guided walking tour, and visit the church or one of the old church cottages.


Älvsbyn Village, Pite River, Forests, Lakes, Mountains, Rivers, Storforsen Waterfall

Leaving Gammelstad, re-board your coach and drive through the spectacular northern landscape en route to Älvsbyn Village, nestled by the Pite River. With its magnificent views, ancient forests, lakes, mountains, and rivers, the surrounding area is really the 'Pearl of Norrbotten'. The Pite River is one of Sweden's last unspoilt rivers, and home to the breath-taking Storforsen Waterfall. With a total fall of 269 feet (about 82 metres), the rapids at Storforsen are the largest in Europe and by far the most impressive sight in the region. Upon arrival in Storforsen, take a guided walking tour amidst your picturesque surrounds and stop to watch the impressive falls.


Hotel Storforsen, Lunch, River Valleys, Archipelago, Rural Land

Following your visit, proceed for a light lunch at the Hotel Storforsen. After lunch, some free time is made available to explore the area at your leisure. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 80-minute drive back to the pier. En route, enjoy the varied scenery, which includes river valleys, an archipelago and rural land.

Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.6 miles (about one kilometre), at times over uneven and cobblestone surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and five steps at Gammelstad. Walking in Storforsen is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear warm, comfortable clothing in layers with flat, closed-toe walking shoes, and bring sun protection and a weatherproof jacket from the ship. The tour sequence may vary. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

This formerly top-secret fortress served as the 'Gibraltar of the North' during World War I, World War II and the Cold War.

Its construction commenced in 1901 with a work force of 1,200 men. The fortress has a circumference of approximately 15.5 miles (about 25 kilometres), and consists of 1,200 installations. During WWII, some 15,000 served in the fortress, chiefly in five forts with fixed artillery. The fortress was also a command centre for Swedish air and land forces in the north. On the 1st of January 1998, Rödbergsfortet was the last fort to be taken out of service. Following a guided walking tour of the fort, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 45-minute drive back to the pier. En route, drive through the Norrland Forest and take in splendid views of river valleys and rural land.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.5 miles-one mile (about 0.8 kilometres-1.6 kilometres), at times over uneven and cobblestone surfaces and hills, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, and stairs at the Boden Fortress and sites visited.

Today, the original site of the town of Luleå is known as the Gammelstad Church Town, an UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The cottages served as overnight stops for parishioners who lived too far away to make the pilgrimage to the church in one day. The town of Luleå was founded around the old church in the 17th century.

Along the way, visit one of the cottages, the Gammelstad Church and Nederluleå Church, built in the 15th century with its famous frescoes and beautiful altar screen.
