Visit Dorotea

Dorotea Municipality is the southernmost of the inland municipalities in Västerbotten County and the gateway to the province of Lapland. The municipality has borders with Vilhelmina Municipality and Åsele Municipality in Västerbotten, Sollefteå Municipality in Västernorrland and Strömsunds Municipality in Jämtland. There are eleven nature reserves located in Dorotea. Two of them, Gitsfjället and Blaikfjället, are shared with Vilhelmina. These nature reserves, spanning miles and miles on end, offer rich experiences of nature through countless moors, mountain forests and bare mountains. Stenbithöjden, a hilly wilderness area with ancient forests that is also located in Åsele Municipality, is well worth a visit.

The small place with lots on offer

There are plenty of vast areas that will appeal to fishing enthusiasts here. You can find excellent fishing waters virtually anywhere from the mountain peaks far into the forests. Most people will find a fishing spot that is perfect for them. And even if you don't catch any fish, you will have a wonderful experience of nature in the magical forests and the crystal clear streams in the mountain valleys. Exploring the wilderness is the perfect medicine for body and soul.
