Norsjö – for body and soul
The Svansele Wilderness scenter takes you on a wild and wonderful journey straight into the wilderness. Guests have the opportunity to stay at a range of different camps, miles from the nearest settlements, where they are given outdoor challenges to complete. Back in Svansele it is possible to visit the Wilderness Exhibition depicting wild animals in their natural environment. Activities for all ages are available during the summer and a restaurant serving a delicious wilderness buffet is on hand.
For a literary experience, take a trip to Raggsjöliden, and follow in the footsteps of renowned Swedish author Torgny Lindgren. You can visit many of the places which are named in his books.
Sleep soundly – yes, many do in the quiet and calm of Norsjö, lulled to slumber by the sound of the wind in the trees, especially during the light summer nights.
The region’s highest point is Åmliden, which is where you will find Hotell Källan Spa och Konferens, offering high-class accommodation and spa treatments and fantastic food.
In central Norsjö is Norsjö Gästgiveri which reopened in May 2016 after extensive renovations to offer rooms and breakfast alongside hostel accommodation.
In the village of Svansele is Knute’s Hotell, just a stone’s throw from the Svansele Wilderness Exhibition and with lovely views of the River Skellefteälven.
