Working with their hands is something that the people of Västerbotten and Lapland have been doing for centuries. From early Sami traditions to more recent and contemporary handicrafts. Prepare to be amazed by the intricate details and beautiful designs.

Skilled handicraft is a large part of Västerbotten's heritage, as it was an absolute necessity to survive here in the north in days gone by. You had to know how to make the most of the resources available between the coast and the mountains, and be at one in and with nature.

Hantverk i Ratan, Ekorrbo Hantverk, SkråmträskSkon, Norsjöslöjdarna and Ringvor i Rengård are all great places to visit – regardless of whether you're looking to learn more about handicrafts, participate in a handicrafts workshop or choose from all that's on offer at the handicraft stalls and farm shops.
