For a truly authentic taste of Norrbotten, take to the road and discover the various communities and landscapes within the vicinity of Karungi. Overtornea, lays 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the south, while Kalix is located 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast.
When it's time to explore beyond Karungi, why not visit the nearest regional area. Lulea is approximately 60 miles (97 kilometers) away and is home to visitor attractions including Kulturens Hus, Lulea University of Technology and Lulea Golf Club. Lulea has a lot to offer those keen to stay for a day or two. Gammelstad Church, Friluftsmuset Hagnan and Lulea Cathedral are some of the other points of interest worth visiting.
One of the best ways to understand a place is by exploring its past. Make the time to visit the traditional villages while you are in the area.
When you hear the call of the great outdoors, follow the lead of active locals and go ice fishing and ice skating.
There is nothing that unlocks understanding in this culturally diverse planet of ours in the way language can, so be sure to learn a couple of practical Swedish words and phrases before you come. Why not make use of "Vill du dansa med mig?" This translates to "Would you like to dance with me?" Another useful example is "Varifrån kommer du?" (Where are you from?).
You'll be sad to bid "Hej då" (farewell) to this magnetic area.
