Discover Lycksele with an exciting walking tour game
Have you ever time traveled? Helped a log driver? Met the Swedish folklore creature vittra? No? Well then, it sounds like you should come with time traveler Eila to Gammplatsen – Lycksele’s ancient market place area!
Eila has traveled to your time from the year 1708, where she lives with her parents and two brothers. Believe it or not, but Eila has her very own time machine! Her only problem is that the key broke, so now she needs your help to find the spare key. Eila’s vittra friend Windflower is a mischievous creature, who has hidden the key somewhere at Gammplatsen. It is now up to you and Eila to search for it.
Go exploring at Gammplatsen
You meet Eila at the Gammplatsen area entrance, and join her for a walk through the different eras of the open air museum area. Windflower has left a tricky task for you to solve in each time period. Maybe you can find the key on one of the shelves at the general store in the 1920s? Or maybe Windflower will give you the key if you manage to guess why the indigenous Saami people stored fish high up in the air?
As you walk, you listen to Eila’s stories about the people who used to come to Gammplatsen. You’ll hear about Johan the log driver who could steer his boat using only one hand, and about the king who decided that everyone who wanted to trade at the market had to go to church.
