Travelling to Sorsele

Sorsele might seem far away, but it really is in the middle of things. You could pass by on your way to Norway or further north in Swedish Lapland. Or you could pass by on your journey with the train Inlandsbanan. Either you could stay here on your way further, or you could come here to stay longer. The latter is preferred. But we do know that our strength is that once you’ve been here, you want to come back.
