Medelpad is situated approximately 60 miles (97 kilometers) west of Stockholm, the country's capital.
It is common for visitors to use Medelpad as a launch pad for further adventures. Vasternorrland has many cultural and natural attractions. Enkoping, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the west, and Kjulaas, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the north of Medelpad are also worth checking out.
Organize some transportation and spend half a day in Vasteras, a transport and retail hub for the area, situated 3 miles (5 kilometers) from Medelpad. This regional center offers plenty of points of interest, including Angso Golf Club, Erikslund Shopping Center and Malardalen University. Rocklunda, Anundshog and Vasteras Cathedral are also good places to spend a little time.
Spend an evening with fellow ice hockey lovers at ABB Arena Nord, cheering on VIK Västerås HK. ABB Arena Nord is 2 miles (3 kilometers) to the south of Medelpad. On game days follow the sea of yellow and black, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join local ice hockey lovers in the nearby pubs and relive the games finest moments over a few cold beers.
When it is time to depart from Medelpad, spend the last of your Swedish kronor on last minute keepsakes and bid a fond Hej då (farewell).
