“Älvsbyn is one of the smallest municipalities in Swedish Lapland, but it features some of its most magnificent nature and important cultural areas. Excavations have uncovered tracks and unique findings showing that hunters and gatherers lived here as early as 7,000 years ago. So even if the surroundings look like untouched nature, even if the feeling is that of primeval forest, people have actually lived here since time immemorial. Back then there was no wilderness, only new areas to discover. This is your chance to experience that splendid nature and go exploring.”
