Luleå

Luleå is a town in northern Sweden counting about 45,500 inhabitants. It is located at the E4.

Heading North Töre or Northeast to Finland

The best place to start north out of Luleå is a small roundabout just outside the university. From almost anywhere in town you can take either buses 4,5, or 20, all should bring you right up to it. You leave Luleå to a small suburb called Porsön and the busstop is Haparanda. In fact, The street you should follow is called Haparandavägen. Just follow this rpad and you'll run into the roundabout, head on the E4 direction Ruvik, most people aren't going much farther than Ruvik but they can drop you off at the entrance to the E4/E10.

Transportation in Luleå

This is a very easy town to use the bus without paying. In most of Sweden you cannot pay for the bus with cash so you have to use a credit card or send a text message from your cellphone. So simply explain you are foreign and don't have a credit card, that you're passing through and don't own a cell phone either. Most of the time (in my case 100% of the time) the driver will simply let you ride for free. I don't know if these excuses work when a control checks you so it helps to have the conversation with the driver first if you are nervous about a fine.
