One of the best activities in Umeå (or pretty much anywhere in Sweden) is going out to the nature! I went on another walk in the forest last weekend and this time brought my camera with me. We drove to a nature reserve called Strömbäck-Kont, you can also get there by bike but the ride is about 20km, which at least for me is a bit too much. There’s actually little information about the nature reserves in Umeå in English online, so I wanted to write some information as well as give you a visual tour to one of the opportunities we have.
There are also places for bonfires and tents in the area, so it’s possible to spend a whole weekend there, or just bring some food and do a barbecue with your friends!
