All roads in Lapland lead to Åsele. Both a vast region between the coast and the mountains and the seat of Åsele Municipality at the heart of the inland forest, this is the centuries-old centre of southern Lapland. A place where Sami, settlers, merchants and state officials gathered at market fairs every year since 1648 to conduct business and discuss legal matters. These events were also great social occasions and opportunities for fun and as they became established over time, the area also became a centre for religious ceremonies and judicial administration.
The municipality of Åsele spans a large area thus offers a big welcome. This is a place where there is no need for visitors to crowd together or to feel stressed. Just relax and take your time to discover what Åsele can offer you.
