Haparanda Vacation Packages
Those with extra time in Sweden, can hit the road and explore other destinations in the vicinity. Kalix, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Overtornea, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the south of Haparanda are also worth checking out.
Lulea, is another good place to explore. It is approximately 55 miles (89 kilometers) from Haparanda and offers a great selection of things to do and see, for example Friluftsmuset Hagnan, Lulea University of Technology and Lulea Golf Club. Gammelstad Church, Lulea Cathedral and Kulturens Hus are more interesting sights in Lulea that should be included on every visitor's itinerary.
To understand the present, it often pays to return to the past. Norrbotten 's colorful traditional villages are a marvellous place to start.
If the best vacation for you includes being outside and rugging up against the cold weather, Norrbotten will be perfect. Skiing is a popular pastime. Cross-country skiing is also enjoyed in the area.
Before you set off on your jouney, do what the smart travelers do and get to know a number of useful lines in Swedish. Educating yourself with just a few basic sentences, such as "Vill du dansa med mig?", or "Would you like to dance with me?", could make your stay all the more enjoyable. "Where are you from?" is another good one know, so try pronouncing "Varifrån kommer du?"
When it's time to leave this special place, say a fond Hej då (farewell) to the interesting people you've met and the places you've spent time.
