High Coast. Taste the words.
The most beautiful part of Sweden. And that’s not what we say. The grade comes from the readers of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation’s magazine Sveriges Natur.
We can only agree.
Our High Coast stretches from Sundsvall
in the south, with its stone town and its two city mountains and with its renowned hotel Knaust. Just north of the town is one of Norrland’s largest shopping and shopping centers with Ikea and many other shops.
Then over to the residence town of Härnösand with the technology house Technichus for the little ones. Here is also Murberget, the country’s second largest open-air museum. Only Skansen is bigger. And free to visit. Just outside the center is the sea bath Smitingen with its long sandy beach with soft sand. A gem that can measure up to the very best beaches in Norrland. And beyond the sandy beach there are interesting paths and caves.
From Härnösand you can also take a boat trip out into the archipelago and see the country’s second longest suspension bridge, the High Coast Bridge built in the same way as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. This E4 bridge, with its almost two kilometers, is a natural border between northern and southern Sweden. Because this is actually Sweden’s center.
High Coast continues over Ångermanland’s inland with Nämforsen with its stone age paintings and mighty waterfalls. And with the zoo in Junsele known for its nice lemurs and white tigers.
Up along the steamland coast with the area around Nordingrå with its picturesque villages. Villages populated not only with fishermen and peasants but also with many artists and even more art galleries. Here is also Mannaminne, a great all-art work where the artist Anders Åberg has gathered dozens of buildings, art, vehicles, trams and museum objects.
The High Coast offers a genuine archipelago environment with places like the Rotsidan with its water-cut stone slabs, Barsta a fishing village with restaurant and connection to the islands. Here is the fishing village of Bönhamn, Norrfällsviken, Högbondens lighthouse and Ulvön, the uninhabited capital of surströmming. To the north, Skuleberget thrives where everyone can have the opportunity to experience mountain climbing during maximum safety up the steep mountain wall. And here is probably the country’s finest outdoor scene with the mighty Skuleberget as a fund. It is the place where different musicians are attracted to summer time.
Up to Örnsköldsvik, a modern city its striking architecture as the landmark Ting1. The city is the home of Modo Hockey as a fostered player like “Peter” Foppa “Forsberg. Here you also find Paradise, an appreciated water park that has everything.
The High Coast is an area where the land uplift has created a unique and fascinating environment. The land uplift is highest in the world with its eight millimeters a year. At the High Coast, the ice sheet was thickest. Impressed by the ice sheet, the country is now rising again in battle with the Bothnian Sea.
Since 2000, a large part of the High Coast is also a world heritage site along with the archipelago on the Finnish side.
High Coast. There is so much to see and do. A nature with steep cliffs that extend into the sea and make us amazed at its whims.
Here we want to be. Here we want you to stay too.
