The simple outdoor-life

Sometimes you want to make it easy for yourself, just lace up the shoes and head out. Take a day trip along any of Skellefteå

Ski close to campus

Nature is in direct proximity to the university area and we can promise you true winters with lots of snow. If you want, you can go to the slopes or ski slopes right after the lecture for more urban skiing.

Magnificent archipelago experiences

There are few activities that are as calming as to venture out to the sea, whether you do it with a pair of ice skates, in a sea kayak or on new skis. The Archipelago and its thousands of islands outside of Luleå, Piteå and Skellefteå offer activities and adventures all year round.

"For those who like nature and outdoor life, Luleå University of Technology is perfect"

There are many places to visit both for spontaneous day / evening trips or for a longer weekend, says Marcus Planting-Gyllenbåga.

"It's more about the community than about making a cool trip."

A mountain hike, a kayak trip in the archipelago or a tent night near the university area. For some students, nature is the focus of leisure.
