Welcome to South Lapland and the Destinations Dorotea and Borgafjäll

In the southernmost part of Lapland you find Dorotea Municipality, also called The Gateway to South Lapland. In Swedish we call it “Lapplands Sydport”.

The shape of the municipality reminds you of a miniature of Sweden. The area extends from the high mountain peaks in Borgafjäll to deep forests and vast marsh lands around the main village Dorotea. The many lakes, ponds and rivers invite you to both fishing and paddling.

The welcoming wilderness of this area offers a lot of possibilities to adventures and at the same time you are never too far from services, food and accommodation. In different places around the municipality you can find interesting culture and history as well as art and architecture. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy local specialities at one of the restaurants.
