Organize some transportation and spend some time in Lulea, a regional center, located some 50 miles (80 kilometers) away from Vidsel. This regional center has plenty of visitor attractions, for example Lulea Golf Club, Lulea Cathedral and Lulea University of Technology. Kulturens Hus, Gammelstad Church and Friluftsmuset Hagnan are also well-worth checking out while you are here.
