Activities and sights
Utsikten is the stunning hilltop viewpoint from where you can gaze out across Storuman and beyond. Take a picnic and enjoy the spectacular sight of lakes and forests. On a clear day you can even see the mountains of Hemavan Tärnaby. For local history enthusiasts, Stensele church is a must. Rumoured to be the largest wooden church in Sweden, it has on display the world’s smallest bible, a quarter the size of a stamp. Fishing in and around Storuman is great all year round. There are over 2,400 lakes in Storuman Municipality and main Umeälven river has a multitude of habitats. A picturesque part of Storuman to head for is the Hembygdsgården local museum on the Luspholmarna islets where you can buy fresh bread baked in a traditional wood-fired oven. Walk along one of many paths, soak up the sun on local sandy waterside beaches or take a dip in the cool, clear waters of Lake Storuman.
