On your Luleå River Luxury Adventure you get to follow the river upstream and discover the many beautiful places it connects. Your journey begins in the lively coastal town of Luleå where you get to experience the fantastic winter landscape by snowmobile. You can also try several other winter activities such as hunting for the northern lights, snowshoeing and meeting moose and reindeer. The city of Luleå also offers good shopping and several nice restaurants. You will sleep in one of Luleå's finest hotels, the ancient hotel from 1903, Elie Stadshotell. With a grand entrance and a beautiful ballroom in the French Renaissance style, this hotel offers tastefully decorated rooms, a gym, parking, a restaurant and a gastropub. Your next destination is Harads where you will sleep in one of the unique and magnificent rooms of the world famous Treehotel. Is it UFOs that pique your interest the most or would you rather live in a bird's nest high up in the tree? Either way, it's a perfect place to relax and be in the moment while enjoying the proximity of breathtaking nature. The final destination of your adventure is Jokkmokk where you will visit the Sami people and experience their culture before going to the Peace and Quiet Hotel.
