For many, holidays and shopping go hand in hand. And not just rainy days. Here in Höga Kusten you get a shopping experience among specialty stores, factory sales and not least in Norrland’s most shopping paradise in Birsta.
You are in thin bread land! Tunnbröt’s first history can be traced back to the High Coast. It was in the small village of Mjällom that Sweden’s oldest thin bread bakery, Mjällom Tunnbröd, started in 1923. The bakery is now located in Ullånger, at E4. Here you will find a visitor center where you can learn more about the baking craft. In the section, which was expanded this year, you can buy crispy flatbread varieties at factory prices and also other products from the High Coast. In addition, you can sign up for a flatbread course. The price includes the actual baking experience, homemade bread cakes and a picnic basket with coffee, juice and butter. Then it’s just a matter of enjoying the green grass. From this year, you will also find Emma’s Skafferi here, with successful crusts in all the flavors.

Docksta Shoe Factory
The “docksta slippers” have been manufactured for almost 100 years and constantly attract new customer groups. In the factory right next to the E4 in Docksta, in the middle of the world heritage Höga Kusten (four miles south of Örnsköldsvik and seven miles north of Härnösand), production is still carried out by hand. This makes each shoe unique. In the same building is the factory store where you will find the classic models Gunilla and Patrik and the “luxury variant” Brogues, designed by acclaimed design guru Mats Theselius. Docksta Sko has a close collaboration with Tärnsjö Tanveri, Jobs handtryck and Växbo Lin and compared to the online store you will find more colors of the shoe models in the store in Docksta. A little cheaper too. Kartongvägen 2, Docksta
Birsta Shopping Centre
More than four million visitors, so Birsta can’t be wrong, can it? Nah, and in addition, Birsta City along the E4 just north of Sundsvall has been named one of Sweden’s most popular shopping centers several times. This is the number one shopping paradise in Norrland. The nearest neighbor is Ikea, Sweden’s fourth that celebrated 50 this year and around there is “everything”, all large and small chains such as Biltema, Jysk, the equestrian store Hööks, the golf specialist Dormy Golf, XXL, Stadium Outlet, Lager 157, Elgiganten, Systembolaget… yes , you understand… You can also find dining experiences, and a hearty brunch at Ikea. In addition, Leo’s Lekland for the children. Stop by and check out, for example, the newly opened Åhlens Outlet, one of five in Sweden and the only one in Norrland.
That shopping and holidays go together has strong proof in the Naturkompaniet in Själevad, which is Örnsköldsvik’s biggest tourist attraction and Sweden’s largest outdoor store. This is outdoor enthusiasts’ Ullared with quality goods for all types of outdoor life. Here you will find almost all products from Fjällräven (which was founded here in Örnsköldsvik and the shop is actually Fjällräven’s old factory) and a variety of goods from some of the world’s leading manufacturers of outdoor equipment. The fact that there are also great opportunities to find bargains among the store’s outlet goods makes the store a must for those looking for clothes, backpacks, tents, fishing equipment or just want to check out nice gadgets.
