Information about Umeå

Umeå Airport is close to the city center, if the weather is agreeable it is a 5 km walk. Otherwise a taxi ride costs about 200 SEK, and a bus ride costs 45 SEK (if you buy the ticket in the vending machine, 60 SEK from the driver). Taxis accept cash and credit cards, buses only accept credit/debit cards - no cash.

The weather at this time is the breakpoint between spring and summer. If we are lucky that means 20⁰C and sunny, but 10⁰C and raining is also a possiblity. It might be a good idea to bring a coat and/or keep an eye on the weather forecast

Biking in Umeå

Bikes is a common mode of transport in Umeå. Some hotels even have bikes availalbe for borrowing, otherwise you can rent bikes at Cykel- och mopedhandlaren

For recreational use, if you have an early flight in or leaving late, here are some tips on nice bike rides: NeIC 2017 Bike trips
