During three days you will hike through what 2016 was voted Swedens most beautiful nature – the High Coast of Sweden. Mountains, deep forests and a shimmering coastline.
LEARN NEW SKILLS
During the High Coast Hike you can take part in outdoor schools and seminars. You also have the possibility to meet the people behind some of Swedens most popular outdoor companies.
If you get up in time you will have plenty of time to enjoy the sandy forest beaches, fall asleep among the berries or just dream away to the sound of the bonfire.
THE HIGH COAST HIKE
The High Coast Hike is a three day and a 43 kilometer long folk festival and hike through the World Heritage site the High Coast of Sweden. Both hikers and media call it the most fun and beatiful hike in Scandinavia. We we just have to agree.
The set-up is simple, you bring your own equipment and tent while we invite likeminded people, select the most beautiful hiking routes in the High Coast, organize transport, food, cooking fuel, maps, outdoor school, seminars and after-hike. You hike in your own pace to the various check-points and at night we meet up at the shared basecamps.
At the basecamps you can participate in the Outdoor School (first nightcamp) and the Equipment Seminars (second nightcamp) or just find your own viewpoint or join the company by the campfire. The hike is somewhat tough at stages hence we strongly recommend that you have practiced hiking with the weight you intend to carry before arrival.
HOW TOUGH IS THE HIKE?
Well this is hard to answer. Some hikers think it is just right while others belive it is tougher than they have imagined. It mostly comes down to preparations. You hike between 10 and 17 kilometers per day carrying about 15 kg on your back up and down the amazing mountains so we strongly recommend that you practice hiking with your intended weight before arrival.
