We recommend everyone arrive in Luleå on Thursday Aug 17. On Friday Aug 18 we are planning an excursion for everyone coming from out of town. We leave our hotel at 0800 the day of the excursion and will be back later in the evening. We can also all have breakfast at the hotel on Sunday morning after the wedding. Lori and Fredrik will spend the rest of Sunday with their family and fly back to Gothenburg (via Arlanda) on Monday Aug 21 with SAS at 11:05 (SK007 from LLA-ARN) and arrive in Gothenburg at 15:45 (SK161 from ARN-GOT).
Luleå is best reached by plane. However, those living in Sweden might enjoy an overnight train to Luleå with SJ. For those flying directly to Luleå, choose Luleå Airport (LLA) as your destination. For those flying to Gothenburg, choose Landvetter Airport (GOT) as your destination. You can fly to Luleå using SAS (Scandinavian) Airlines, Norwegian Airlines, or Next Jet. If flying from abroad, a more economical approach would be flying to Luleå via Stockholm or Gothenburg. Luleå airport is 10 minutes from downtown Luleå. You can get there by taxi or bus. Local bus number 4 or 104 takes you from the airport to the city center. Here is a timetable valid until Aug 20 ( the stop “Smedjegatan City” is closest to Quality Hotel Luleå). The ticket costs only 30 SEK and can be bought on the bus with a credit card (no cash). For more information, click here or here.
We recommend everyone stay at Quality Hotel Luleå. It is located on the main street (Storgatan) in the center of Luleå and within walking distance to the reception. We can offer the following group rates (including breakfast) for the nights between Thu Aug 17 and Mon Aug 21 (9 SEK = 1 USD):
- Single room: 600 SEK/night

- Family room: 900 SEK/night
The double room has one double bed or two single beds. The family room has two single beds and a sofa bed that can accommodate 1 adult or 2 children. All rooms are described here. For dates outside Aug 17-21, normal summer rates will apply. For late check in (after 16:00), the hotel needs a credit card number to guarantee the booking.
