At Lycksele Djurpark stroll around the leafy zoo and get close to all the Nordic animal residents. You’ll find amenity you need for the perfect day here: a park, café and a restaurant – if you don’t bring your own picnic lunch of course. At the Lyckolandet fun park there’s plenty of climbing, jumping and running opportunities for the children.
For those longing for a swim then Ansia Badpark is the perfect family choice with its water slides, wave machine, children’s pool, play area and beach volleyball court. And when everyone’s worked up an appetite, there is a café on hand serving simple food, ice cream and other refreshments.
Gammplatsen is the site where Lycksele was first established in the 17th century and is a popular destination point for tourists of all ages, eager to visit the Forestry Museum, Sami settlement and scenic surroundings. Try your hand at baking in the old bakery, don costumes from a bygone age to become a Sami, lumberjack or trader. You can also test your driving skills in a forestry machine.
And adventures of all kinds just keep on coming. How about travelling along a 13.6 km long ropeway, the longest in the world? All ages can experience the excitement of “flying” above the treetops, like a bird while learning something about the area’s industrial heritage at the same time. Maybe you’ll see a moose or a reindeer…. It is also possible to descend 90 m down a working mine to visit an underground church. Find out why it’s there – it’s a fascinating story involving an old local prophecy.
For another great family day out – visit the village of Svansele in Norsjö which has a fantastic exhibition depicting stuffed animals in their natural environment. Here they keep the “winter room” cold even in the warmth of summer! Once you have made your leisurely way through the exhibition make sure you taste the amazing buffet of northern delicacies which have been prepared over an open fire. You can also drive an ATV, chance your arm at axe-throwing or bathe in an outdoor bathtub.
The coastal city of Skellefteå is crammed with all kinds of adventures. The gaming centre, situated right inside Viberget mountain, offers a number of quests and challenges for the whole family – who will emerge the champion? In the Nordanå park is a great play area suitable for children of all ages.
A look at Skellefteå Museum’s summer programme is highly recommended. We’re sure you will find something that will interest you.
