Lycksele Municipality (Swedish: Lycksele kommun; Southern Sami: Liksjoe tjïelte; Ume Sami: Liksjuon kommuvdna) is a municipality in Västerbotten County in northern Sweden. Its seat is located in Lycksele.
The municipality traces its history to Lycksele parish, which was in effect during the 19th century with very similar borders and size (5,000-5,500 km²). The whole rural municipality Lycksele became a market town (köping) in 1929 and city in 1946. In 1971 it was amalgamated with Örträsk Municipality.

Previously, the railroad between Umeå and Storuman was the main means of transportation, but its significance has diminished and passenger traffic was discontinued. There are now daily buses to towns like Umeå, Storuman and Tärnaby. In August 2011, passenger train services between Lycksele and Umeå were re-established.
