About Northern Sweden

Norrbotten is a vast region of surprising contrasts. It is:

  • Sweden’s largest and northernmost region, much of it lying within the Arctic circle
  • It covers an area larger than all of Portugal or Austria alone
  • It is home to Sweden’s highest mountain and deepest lake
  • It is one of Europe’s largest wilderness areas, with world famous tourist resorts such as the Ice Hotel and Tree Hotel drawing visitors from around the world
  • Norrbotten is also a focus for the European space industry, and home to its most significant rocket and satellite launching facility
  • Its landscape is constantly changing with the seasons, from endless +30C sunshine and the midnight sun in summer to spectacular displays of the Northern Lights and -40C in the winter
  • Norrbotten is rich in mineral resources, with 90% of Europe’s iron ore mined here, including at the world’s deepest underground mine in Kiruna
  • It is one of the few regions of the world powered by 100% renewable electricity, 100% of the time, and electricity is a major export
  • Europe’s largest onshore wind farm, the giant Markybygden project is located here, with over 1,000 wind turbines
  • The region is also rich in hydropower resources, with the Luleå River alone generating nearly 10% of Sweden’s electricity
  • The Luleå Port is Sweden’s busiest dry bulk port, and despite its northerly location, it operates all year round thanks to the ice breaker fleet based there
  • Norrbotten is consistently the region of Sweden that attracts the most investment inflows – a trend that is only accelerating as the world races to decarbonize its economy
