Travel to Örnsköldsvik
We will assume that you, as a visitor from abroad, at some stage
will pass through the main international airhub of Sweden –
Stockholm/Arlanda International Airport. From Arlanda Airport you
have three realistic possibilities to get to Örnsköldsvik in a
reasonable amount of time:
Domestic flights to Örnsköldsvik Airport or Umeå City Airport.
* Coach ride up the eastern coast of Sweden (9-10 hours).
* Rent a car and drive by yourself or with friends (7-8 hours).
From fall/winter 2011, the Bothnia high-speed railway line
is fully connected to the national railway network. This makes
it possible to board a train at Stockholm Arlanda that gets you to
Örnsköldsvik in around five hours.
Finding Fjällräven Center in Örnsköldsvik is not a difficult task.
When you have reached the city centre you will probably make visual
contact in a matter of minutes. The arena is situated at the
waterfront, on Viktoriaesplanaden 1.
What to do/Hotel Information
Örnsköldsvik is situated in the northernmost parts of the High
Coast, a Unesco World Heritage-listed coastline. The dramatic
coastline was shaped by combined processes of
glaciation, glacial retreat and the resulting land uplift.
read more about things to do when in Örnsköldsvik we recommend
the web site and staff at Örnsköldsvik Tourist Office.
However, from a hockey point-of-view, we do recommend a visit at
Restaurant Mammamia at Storgatan 6. This restaurant offers
Swedish-Italian cooking, a large collection of game-worn hockey
jerseys from all over Europe and the NHL, and of course inside
hockey knowledge from the owner Giordano "Danno" Sternad. "Danno"
came to Örnsköldsvik as an immigrant from Trieste, Italy, in the
1970s and fell in love with the game of the locals.
Meet the Lumberjacks
official Fan Club of MODO Hockey is named "Lumberjacks". The
Lumberjacks organize trips for fans to away games, starts the
singing and drumming in the section for standing fans, as well as
coming up with ideas and producing choreographies, flags and other
sorts of visual support for MODO in Fjällräven Center and on the
you want to meet up with the Lumberjacks - there will be an
official warm-up restaurant/pub during the
season - check this space.
MODO Fans in the southern parts of Sweden a Fan Club was started in
the mid-1990s, which today is called MODO Syd ("MODO South").
MODO Syd organizes the ticket sale for the away fans sections at
MODO games in southern Sweden, as well as some other appreciated
events such as the "Foppaland Tour". A yearly bus trip to northern
Sweden to meet up with the Lumberjacks, watch MODO play and meet the
the moment, no officially authorized Fan Club for MODO Fans living
abroad exists, but perhaps you would like to change that?
will find the widest selection of MODO gear in the Intersport store
at Hamngatan 13 in downtown Örnsköldsvik, there is also a shop in
the atrium of the arena which is open during games. The Internet shop
does unfortunately not offer possibilitiy to purchase MODO souvenirs
from abroad, at the time of writing.
