These highlights await you when you rent a camper van in Lulea

One of the top sights to see when you rent a motorhome in Lulea is Gammelstad Church Town. Church towns are unique to this part of Sweden, where the population has always been sparsely spread, and people had to travel long distances to worship, needing to stay overnight. These villages were built around a church, almost abandoned during the week but full of life at the weekend or during religious holidays. Gammelstad is the best preserved, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its charming rows of red wooden houses feel like a trip back in time.

The Lulea archipelago consists of over 1000 tiny islands, many completely uninhabited. With your Lulea rental motorhome, you'll find that some islands are populated with traditional fishing villages that feel like nothing has changed for centuries. Hiking the trails of Kluntarna and Smaskar through ancient forests will allow you to feel the essence of Swedish Lapland.

This makes Lulea particularly suitable as a starting point for your road trip
