The Municipality of Lycksele – the city in Lappland

Lycksele is located at the edge of the mountains in the centre of inland Västerbotten. Ever since the beginning of the 17th century, when the Sami and settlers traded here, the city has been an important marketplace. Lycksele is still a place of meetings: a modern community with a large tourist and conference hotel and both a zoo and a water park. Lycksele is home to nearly 900 companies with particularly strong expertise in the engineering industry, innovative technical development, growing employment needs and a strong belief in the future. The infrastructure is well developed with good transportation, well-developed health and medical care services and considerable high-level educational opportunities. Lycksele offers a secure life with good neighbours and more time for your family.
