The height of happiness

10 High Coast Views You Must See

Discover the High Coast’s magical mountain overlooking forest, green valleys and sea. Here are the mountains you should get up on – on foot or even by car. To the top!

WHY THE HIGH COAST IS THE HIGHEST IN SWEDEN

During the last ice age the ice was as thickest, about three kilometers, here at the Ångermanland coast. The crust was pushed down, at most 800 meters, and when the ice retreated about 20,000 years ago, the country began to rise again. Not anywhere in the world has the total land uplift been as large as in the High Coast area. Since the ice melted, the land has been raised about 286 meters in relation to the sea surface. At the top of the mountains are still visible the tracks from the sea waves that washed over rocks and rock hills. The High Coast became a World Heritage Site in 2000.
