Holmsund Cruises

Sweden at its sleepy, scenic best, charming Holmsund is situated on the eastern mouth of the countryside-flanked Ume River and forms – coupled with Obbola, on the western side of the river – part of the picturesque Umeå municipality’s Holmsund-Obbola. Home to just a few thousand people, who rightly delight in living in such a peaceful, largely unspoilt part of the world, Holmsund feels a world away from Sweden’s energetic cities.

As you arrive at Holmsund via the Ume, you take in gorgeous scenes of low-lying forested landscapes, marshland and verdant islands and islets providing postcard-worthy photo opportunities. Then, once ashore, you find a delightful little settlement that’s a delight to explore and seek-out its attractions. To name just a few of the highlights, there’s the town’s 19th century three-nave hall church, as well as a collection of interesting museums.
