Umea Airport Shuttles
A simple way to take care of all parts of your trip is by making sure you’ve got a shuttle waiting for you near ground transportation, doing so with the help of either area sedan or taxi cab providers, both of which know the way well and offer free baggage handling service, not to mention handicap accessibility.
Understanding the lay of the land is the first step to having fun no matter what side of town your hotel is at. If you’re staying east of town, explore the unique works at Vasterbotten Museum, while those sticking to the central area have the crème of the crop of landmarks to explore, from astounding churches to riverside views along the scenic promenade. Those hanging out in the southeast side of town near Umeå University have several gastropubs to choose from as well as a more relaxed access point to the same riverside promenade.
Make sure nothing gets mixed up by keeping track of every detail, especially when it comes to your shuttle. Print out your confirmation e-mail the moment it arrives, also studying a terminal map before you arrive. With an easy design, information desks available all day, and an overall subdued atmosphere that makes big crowds rare, you’ll be sure to find your ride without trouble. In the event of an absent ride or wrong pick-up time, contact your service provider to re-schedule.
