The Municipality of Vilhelmina – wild and beautiful

With the mountains around the corner, the Municipality of Vilhelmina attracts people and businesses with a good amount of living space and municipal service that functions throughout the municipality. Here, it is inexpensive to both live and work. The municipality works to create a positive trend of commercial renewal and greater networking. The business community participates in the cooperation programme “Boundless business climate” through the Lycksele Chamber of Commerce and in the corporate network Arena 45, where investors can find production capacity, expertise, contract work and business partners. In Vilhelmina, it is easy to live a good family life. The classes in schools and preschools are small and events such as the Wilhelmina Winter Weekend, the Inland Trade Fair and the autumn market add touch of something special to the calm, beautiful atmosphere.
