What can you do in Sorsele in your spare time? Many of us spend leisure time on hanging out with friends, skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, fishing and spending time in nature. 

Being active

From the lofty mountains of Vindelfjällen in the west down to the primeval lowland forest in Övre Juktådalen, with several rivers and larger waterways, the municipality offers fantastic opportunities for extraordinary nature and cultural experiences.

Sorsele Municipality has a population density of about 0.3 people per km², which means that we’re all very close to nature, making it easy to enjoy many outdoor pursuits, such as hunting, fishing, skiing, hiking and cycling.

The municipality has many clubs and associations, an active population that appreciates spending time in nature and a broad range of activities, non-profit and commercial. A large part of the municipality is protected nature, comprising forest and mountain areas as well as the rivers running like veins through the municipality, such as the Vindel River, the Lais River, Gargån and Juktån. All offering endless opportunities for recreation, physical activity and adventure. Experience Sorsele!
