{{ event.description }}

Boden is a town of around 28 000 inhabitants located along the Lule River in Norrbotten County, 35 kilometres north-west of Luleå.

Understand

From the introduction of military service in 1901 until its abolishment in 2010, thousands of young Swedish men were forced to endure cold, dark winter months in the forests and mountains surrounding Boden as part of their mandatory military training. This earned the town a reputation as a harsh place, where no one of their right mind would travel by free will. Now those days are gone, and Boden has become a popular tourist destination, especially among Norwegians who like to spend their summer holiday at the town camping.
