Visit Långträsk, part 2
We knew that there wasn't going to be much to see in Långträsk...but that it was SO small we didn't know. This is the store we found there. We bought a can of coke and went back. Now THAT's real northern mentality!
Långträsk is situated halfway between Piteå and Arjeplog along road 373 btw!
Visit Långträsk, part 1
Me and my sister was out on a tour by car and saw a sign "Långträsk" (Which means long swamp in swedish, but "long sea" in some Sami language) and we thought "Let's go there!". It was a ride of maybe 70 km by car and the road itself wasn't very funny but we enjoyed it for the fun of it all.
At one time we came across some rein-deer which might by fun to see for a foreigner. Jsut beware the risk of bumping into them... people flashing their headlights at you in this region probably don't want to warn you about police controls, but rather of reindeer on the road....
Mind you that there is rather little snow in this picture....there were places with much more along the way. And this was in late April 2005...

It's not always summer here (surprise!) but come here anyway, there are lots of things to do in the wintertime. Skiing for instance.
