Vasterbotten County

4.1
The coastal Vasterbotten County draws primarily nature lovers eager to explore one of Europe's last remaining areas of unspoiled wilderness. Extending across the northern section of Sweden from the Gulf of Bothnia to the Norwegian border, the county features a landscape of forested uplands and windswept mountain peaks. Farming, lumbering, and mining remain the main economic activities for the majority of the region's 250,000 people. Umea, the county capital, represents the largest of just a few urban settlements in a largely barren region. A lively college town, Umea provides a convenient base for outdoor adventures into the county's pristine wilderness. Vasterbotten County is in Sweden.
