Today is the day we have all been waiting for as our hard work preparing ourselves to the trip to exploring destination Piteå pays off. I am writing this blogpost in the train to catch up with the rest of our group in Tervola, Lapland. This is the true life of a tourism student – always on the go. We have been getting to know our destination as real professional tourism students are supposed to. Piteå has given an extraordinary preview of itself only by the research we have done beforehand and I bet we are all quite excited to actually go there and experience it ourselves.
I already am familiar with Piteå as a Swedish archipelago destination with loads of activities and attractions to explore. We have been concentrating on Piteå as a coastal and blue wellbeing destination and therefore the coastal wellbeing activities have been under a close inspection. As you may remember from my introduction blogpost, I am into nature and therefore the activities done in the nature, have I found really interesting. In Piteå it is possible and highly recommendable to try out activities such as canoeing, cycling or birdwatching – of many possibilities – as Piteå offers the most beautiful scenes for that. Can you imagine going there on a yoga retreat, hiking or just experiencing coastal way of life? It can all be done in Piteå!
