Storuman (South Sámi: Luspie, Ume Sámi: Lusspie) is a town in Västerbotten County, in southern Swedish Lapland, in the municipality with the same name.

Understand

Storuman was a small village, Luspen, until the inland railroad (Inlandsbanan) was built about 1924 and it became a station and later a junction. At that point it got its current name from the lake Storuman. It now has some 2000 inhabitants (some 6000 in all the municipality).

Get in

Storuman is at the Inlandsbanan railway and also on E45 and on the "Blue Highway" (here E12) between Pudozh and Petrozavodsk in Russia and Mo i Rana in Norway, via Kuopio, Vaasa and Umeå. The Blue Highway is marketed to tourists, and gets it's name from the many lakes and rivers it follows. The nearest airports are located near VilhelminaHemavanLycksele and Umeå.
