      Can you help me narrow on what area of interesting locations/things to visit/do ?

      Sweden Nov 8, 2015 at 11:55 AM

      I hate to miss important locations or sights, reading the travel book, it is so hard to know exactly what are the must. So I figure who else to ask but the people that live in Sweden?

      thanks all in advance
      we plan to go next late may - mid june just before school is out there june 20th.

      what are the MUST SEE while in the city

      Stockholm Nov 9, 2015 at 12:53 PM

      I had a more broad question before, then I realized I probably needs to narrow it down a bit.
      I want to know if I am missing any MUST see from my current list.

      • Gamla Stan - The Old Town
      • Kungliga Slottet - Royal Palace
      • Vasa Museum
      • Stadshuset - City Hall
      • Skansen Open AIr Museum
      • Hötorget Market
      • Nobelmuseet - Nobel Museum

      bike trails

      by AnnieLouisa Online Now Mar 25, 2015 at 2:45 PM

      I will be spending 3 days in Umea in the spring as some of my ancesters were from there. One of them was born in Umea and her mother was born in Boggbole. I see there is a bike path that connects Umea to Boggbole and Boggbole Manor through the woods? I'm traveling alone and although born in the country, I never felt comfortable in the woods by myself…nuts perhaps. Is this area safe? Is there a bus that goes there in the summer? Would a taxi be wiser? I will not have a cell phone with me. There are ruins of an old sawmill in which my Gr…grandfather worked that I would like to explore also. Any knowledge of this area or suggestions? Norlin and Linstrom were a couple of the names. Is there an old cemetery in the area also (LOL)?

      Northern Lights in Umeå

      by penny_g Online Now Jan 28, 2014 at 6:24 AM

      Dear all,

      I am just back from Tromsø, which was amasing with its scenery and polar landscapes. Unfortunately, didn't see the Northern lights but that's another occassion to go up in the far north.

      I was thinking of Umeå this time, going in March. Do you think its a good period or it might be a bit late then. How is it in terms of weather. To see the lights you need clear sky and low temperatures, so how is Umeå in this regard? Please recommend any easily accessible point to Umeå and feel free to share your experience there - local people's advice is most welcome.

      Could someone tell me where to buy Swarovski jewelry in Umea?

      If there are no Swarovski stores here, then any crystal jewelry stores in Umea are recommended. I want to buy some as gifts for my friends.

      I need advice. My grandmother died and the funeral is on the 23rd December in the morning.

      My family are travelling to Northern Finland through Sweden for Christmas.

      I can get into Stockholm for 9.15 PM on the 23rd. I need to get up to Umea for early the following morning.

      The plains, trains and buses are of no help.

      Can anyone suggest anything at all?
