Drinking coffee with an open fire and experiencing the peacefulness at the lake, the area around Norsjö offers many possibilities for excursions!
A good place to go is like a good mushroom place - it is kept secret. And often it is not hard to keep the secret, even if directions would leak out. The really good places of excursion are characterized by the fact that you do not find them on Google. They are not marked on any map and they are often located at the end of a narrow and difficult road (if any). But when you find it, it is worth the trouble.
We at Visit Norsjö have tried to find some of the best places to visit in the immediate area, and will update as much as possible.
Right next to Malå River, this excursion site is located. There is a cabin with large fireplace and opportunities for overnight stays for the brave.
This site goes, with some patience to find with the help of, for example, Google maps, but there are many roads and few signs - so pay attention!
The cabin is located about 20km northwest of Norsjö.
From Norsjö: Drive northwest towards Norsjövallen. When you reach Norsjövallen and you are at a T-junction, turn right towards Glommersträsk. At the crossroads about 12 km later you drive straight towards Mensträsk. Continue forwards about 4.6 km and turn right onto Kron-Ollesvägen. Continue until about 5.1 km on a gravel road.
The newly renovated hiking trail around Vajsjön has five resting places along the trail, one of which is about 25 minutes walk from the starting point. This rest area is fairly new and there is information about all the bird species that nest around the lake.
Starting from Källan Hotell, it is relatively easy to find to the this cabin. This is located on Västerbotten's highest mountain, 551 meters above sea level. In the cabin you can light a fire and enjoy the view. Close by you will also find the lookout tower, which gives you a panoramic view of the nearby landscape.
Directions: The location is about 25 km from Norsjö. Follow signs from Norsjö to Åmliden. Once in Åmliden you will find a sign leading to Källan Hotell.
