A town and municipality in Sweden.
Timber is also exported, being floated in large quantities down the Lule.
The Lule is formed of two branches, Stora and Lilla (Great and Little) Lule; the length of the main stream is 193 m.
The Stora Lule branch drains the Langas and Stora Lule lakes (Langasjaur, Luletrask), which have a length together exceeding 5 o m., a fall between them of some 16 ft.
Below Stora Lule lake the river forms the Harsprang (hare's leap; Njuommelsaska of the Lapps), the largest and one of the finest cataracts in Europe.
Pearls are sometimes found in the fresh-water mussel (Margaritana margaritifera); thus a tributary of the Lilla Lule River takes its name, Perle River, from the pearls found in it.
