ABOUT THE AREA
Offering everything from deep-blue archipelagos and Northern Lights, to killer fashion, food and design, Sweden is a Nordic dream date.
Few countries are as design literate as Sweden. impeccable taste and attention to detail make much of the country look like a shoot for Wallpaper or Architectural Digest. Almost everyone in Stockholm got the memo to ‘look sharp’, while the prevalence of irresistible furnishings, textiles and lighting in cafes, restaurants and homes across the nation are nothing short of enviable. Yet, Swedish style is rarely ostentatious; form and function are tightly linked in a society that reveres moderation, simplicity and practicality. Prepare to celebrate all things beautiful and democratic.
While the riverside township of Sorsele that sits on the E45 may be small, the municipality of Sorsele is anything but. it stretches east to west for 200km and is 50km wide, including the free-flowing Vindelalven and wild expanses of the Vindelfjallen Nature Reserve. This is popular country for outdoors enthusiasts and hikers, fishers and winter sports people who flock here throughout the year.
Sorsele township is a good base, but to head into the Vindelfjallen Nature Reserve, you’ll want to travel 88km northwest up the dead-end road to Ammarnas, one of the exit/entry points for the Kungsleden. inlandsbanen trains stop in Sorsele twice daily in summer, one heading in each direction, and the inlandsbanen museum is here.
