Delight of Northern Sweden

Hello, everyone!

I would like to create a corner in this forum dedicated to the smaller cozy towns which are located in the Northernmost parts of Sweden. It is well know that the northern regions, like Norrbotten or Lapland, are sparsely populated, however there are still some nice urban places.
Let this thread be a tribute to smaller, charming and a bit magical urban territories, which i, personally, find easy to get addicted to.

Nice, rarely seen! I didn't know that aura borealis, "norrsken", can be seen from Luleå.

A-ha. It would be amazing, if we could see auroras here (in Stockholm area), aswell. Sometimes they can be seen, of course, but not very often.

Traveling by train through northern Sweden is unbelievably boring, nothing but trees and trees. But those 4 towns, Luleå, Piteå, Skellefteå and Umeå are very pleasant places.

I`ve been to Abisko several times, it has a great grocery store. Kiruna is so so, I guess. It has friendly people for sure.

Well, it really would have been more pleasant, if the railway was along the coast. Actually, there already is Botniabanan - a railway line connecting the larger towns that are spread along the coast of Gulf of Bothnia, however it is still to be prolonged further North.

Kiruna is a great place in winter time, i believe. Also, there are more nice towns like Boden, Gällivare, Älvsbyn up there.

Gällivare - the second largest municipality in Lapland.
A locality and the seat of Gällivare Municipality in Norrbotten County, Sweden with 8.449 inhabitants in 2010. The town was founded in the 17th century. Together with nearby towns Malmberget and Koskullskulle it forms a conurbation with some 15.000 inhabitants.
Gällivare is situated at the northern end of the Inlandsbanan railway line, just about 100 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle. Gällivare is located in a major iron ore mining region. Adjacent to Gällivare (about five kilometres) is Malmberget, known as a site for iron ore extraction from deep mines by LKAB.
Outside Gällivare lies the ski resort Dundret, which is equipped with six ski lifts and ten groomed slopes along with a conference center and hotel. The ski season stretches from the end of October all the way into early May.
