As of a giant’s sword shed, Slåttdalsberget is cleaved in two by the 30 meter deep and seven meter wide Slåttdals creek. From Entré Syd you walk about 3.5 kilometers. Turn right after the crevice and take the road back over Slåttdalsberget back. Then you get the High Coast’s most powerful view of the World Heritage.

2. ROTSIDAN

NORDINGRÅ

At Rotsidan you will find a four-kilometer stretch of beautifully ground and flat rocks, ideal as a bath and sunbathing area when the weather is nice. At south-easterly storms, the waves hit high on land. The World Heritage Site passes here.

3. THE SEA AND THE ISLANDS
