Timrå is a locality and the seat of Timrå Municipality in Västernorrland County, Sweden with 10,443 inhabitants in 2010.[1]

It is located about 13 km north of Sundsvall (a town with a metropolitan area of some 100,000 inhabitants), and could arguably be considered a satellite to that town.

The two closest cities (Sundsvall and Härnösand) share one airport, Midlanda, that is geographically located in Timrå.

Indalsälven, one of Sweden's largest rivers with a length of 430 km, meets the sea in Timrå.

In Sweden, Timrå is mainly known for its ice hockey club Timrå IK, playing in the highest division (Swedish Hockey League).
