If you wish to continue your journey up the Skellefteå River, it is possible for relatively large boats to sail up to the Bergsbyn dam, but after that the ability to go further is restricted by the size of the lock. The vertical clearance under the bridges is 3.5 metres. Detailed information about the waterway is included in the folder entitled “Båtled Skellefteälven” (“The Skellefteå River Waterway”) which is available at the tourist centre. Here you need to navigate according to the markings in the nautical chart.
