Luleå University of Technology is located quite far north in Sweden. But it is never far away.
Ten to twenty flights depart from Luleå Airport with destinations in Stockholm or Gothenburg on an average day.
You get from central Luleå to the central station in Stockholm in less that two hours, and do not have to be stuck in traffic even once. In the mornings, you might even get there quicker than if you started from one of Stockholm's suburbs.
From Lulea, you can also fly to Kiruna, Pajala, Umeå, Östersund, Sweden and Gothenburg in Sweden, or, if the longing for sun and heat gets too strong, with direct flights to more southern shores.
