Nature’s Best approved!

Nature’s Best approved!

We gladly like to inform you that recently Luleå Travel has received the green eco-label Nature’s Best. With not many approved companies in Sweden, this is absolutely something we are very proud about! Our Nature’s Best certification guarantees that we provide you with high-quality experiences. Combined with an active responsibility for protecting nature, more eco-friendly travel and careful consideration of the cultural values and people at the destination.

What is Nature’s Best?

Nature’s Best is Sweden’s only sustainability label for nature-based experiences. The labeling system labels the activities of ecotourism entrepreneurs. Nature’s Best functions both as a systematic tool for nature and cultural tourism companies.  Sustainable business development and a quality label that makes sustainable experiences visible to conscious travelers.

The organization who stands behind Nature’s Best is the Swedish Nature & Ecotourism Association (Naturturismföretagen). More information regarding quality labeling of experiences in Swedish nature you can find on the website from Nature’s Best

Nature’s Best six basic principles

1. Respect the limitations of the destination – minimize the negative impacts on local nature and culture.
2. Support the local economy.
3. Make all the operator’s activities environmentally sustainable.
4. Contribute actively to nature and cultural conversation.
5. Promote knowledge and respect and the joy of discovery.
6. Quality and safety all the way.

Choose smart

As our guest, you too can contribute to support the environment and sensitive nature. By for example using the train instead of flights between Stockholm and Luleå to reduce CO2 emissions.  Select hotels who step out in the field of environmental responsibility and sustainable operation within the tourism industry. Or choose quality approved activities which have the lowest environmental impact during your stay.

Lapland Coast to Mountains

As the days are getting longer we are looking forward to the summer season. However it will still take a while before the last snow has disappeared from Luleå. For this summer we have added a new package to our summer holiday assortment: Lapland Coast to Mountains. Which is a copy from our popular winter version of this holiday.

Lapland Coast to Mountains

Travel through Swedish Lapland with round-the-clock daylight from the coast to the mountains in 6 days! Discover the vibrant coastal city of Luleå before continuing your holiday towards the mountain village of Abisko. The distance (approx. 440km) between Luleå and Abisko you will travel by train over one of Europe’s northernmost scenic train routes. You will cross the Arctic Circle and go through endless forests in one of the world’s most unique landscapes. To enrich your summer holiday, this package includes a visit to Moose & Reindeer Park, the UNESCO World Heritage site Gammelstad (Old Church Town) as well as a chairlift up to the STF Aurora Sky Station. Creating an even better summer memory, you may also opt for extension overnights in the floating Arctic Bath, up in the wood Treehotel, or chill in the ICEHOTEL!
