Bothnia Anticipates 2007 Uptick

The four ports that comprise the Bothnia cruise ports alliance are expecting an increase in calls by cruise ships next year and visits by 10 vessels. Hudiksvall, Pitea and Lulea in Sweden and Rauma in Finland in 2004 formed the Midnight Sun Cruising alliance to increase global awareness of the region. The four ports are located along the body of water between Sweden and Finland extending up to the Arctic Circle; the region has a number of UNESCO World Heritage sites.
