In roadless land, at the foot of the mountain, is the ecolodge of Geunja. At Geunja, you will be a part of a traditional and sustainable lifestyle and experiencing intimacy with nature and Sami culture. Join a wildlife safari into Vindelfjällen Nature Reserve, one of Europe’s largest protected areas and a classic habitat for the Arctic fox. Mikael Vinka, your Sami host and guide, has since long worked with the preservation of the Arctic fox.
The Vindelfjällen Nature Reserve is a unique part of the mountain range in northern Sweden, and one of the largest protected areas in Europe — twice the size of Luxembourg. The area around Ammarnäs is the most reindeer-dense in Sweden and the Arctic fox has a natural habitat in the mountains. In Vindelfjällen there are endless possibilities for hiking and cycling. Here are of course the well-known Kungsleden, but in addition to that, there are also over 200 kilometres of different walking and hiking trails.
If you want to enjoy food from the nature´s own pantry – like cloudberries from the mires, the Arctic char from crystal clear rivers or fine meat like reindeer or elk – you should definitely visit some of our Sami food creators: fjallvilt.se, sapmivisti.se and samiecolodge.se. The food they serve is as genuine as the people you meet and always cooked from the heart and soul.

Far back in time when the people who lived in the mountains was to send mail, goods, cattle and supplies, they had to walk, miles after miles, in roadless land. That was the main reason why the boat Älvkungen, the River King, was built. Today you have the unique opportunity to follow on a historic trip where you can see and experience Sorsele from the Vindel River. If you are looking for additional adventures you can combine your trip on Älvkungen with fat bikes.
The increasingly popular Inlandsbanan makes two stops a day in Sorsele – with one train that continues north and one that goes further south. At the train station lies Hook & Cup, which has everything from a cosy cafe with many local delicacies from Princess Bakery, to a fly fishing and souvenir shop, tourist information and fishing licences. Here is also the Inlandsbanemuseum which is well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of the railway.
On a fat bike, you get the opportunity to experience and explore new places in a completely different way than on foot. Bike over mires, through mountain sceneries, forests and beaches along with Sorsele Fatbike Tours. If you want to go for an adventure on your own, there is also the possibility to rent fat bikes.
