Umeå – The city in the Nordic nature

The Umeå region is a combination of adventures in wilderness, culture impressions and city-pulse. You can do a lot of nice shopping and furthermore, you can eat in a restaurant near to the river or have a picnic in the city park in the light of the midnight sun. Just around the corner you will find the see, woods, rivers and lots of activities. With 115 000 inhabitants is Umeå the largest town in northern Sweden.
