”Stop by our workshop at the first campsite. You will learn more about wool and create your own wool products from scraps from our factory.”
”With the right knowledge, adventures become more comfortable. At the second campsite, I will share my best tips. See you at the top of Gyltberget.”
”Being able to handle a knife safely is one of the fundamentals in outdoor life. During lunch on the second day at Kälsviken, I will share my best tips.”
The High Coast Hike
LOTS OF FUN
You will get to experience perhaps Sweden’s most beautiful natural areas. But it’s the atmosphere that makes you come back to the High Coast Hike. This is probably the nicest, most fun, coziest, and most amazing hike you can join. Come along!
De flesta kommer redan på Onsdag till förkvällen. Levande musik, tips inför vandringen och skön gemenskap.
Take a swim, enjoy the views, some alone time, participate in one of the workshops, or relax by the campfire with fellow participants.
Finish line mingle at the top of the World Heritage site. This feeling and this moment will be something you’ll long to return to.
Saturday evening, we celebrate our achievements with a fantastic party at FriluftsByn. This is something you simply can’t miss!
HIGH COAST HIKE
LOTS OF FUN
Isn’t it wonderful to feel the calmness and have plenty of time to prepare for the journey? That’s why most people arrive at FriluftsByn on Wednesday evening. We get into the spirit, check-in, have the opportunity to ask any questions, and listen to the map briefing with the best tips. Burgers & Beer are served in the courtyard, and we have the rooftop terraces reserved for those of us embarking on the High Coast Hike.
The advice most people tend to give to those who haven’t been on the High Coast Hike before is to arrive for the pre-evening. There’s a pleasant excitement in the air as it’s the first time many are embarking on such an adventure. You check in, collect your food, and have time to repack your backpack a bit. We go through the map so you get the best tips for the hike and just relax a bit.
You can also seize the opportunity to make some good deals as Woolpower opens a small pop-up shop with special prices. If you have questions about equipment, Naturkompaniet is on-site. Getting help adjusting your backpack is often popular, among other things.
In short, don’t miss the pre-evening.
”It’s amazing how you instantly get into the vibe.”
”It’s incredibly cozy to be here. We’re not outdoor experts, just regular people embarking on an adventure.”
HIGH COAST HIKE
LOTS OF FUN
You have arrived at our shared night camp. Perhaps you just want to sit down alone for a while and process your experiences. Or join others by a campfire. Maybe you’re eager to learn something new and participate in one of the courses. Most likely, it will be a combination, and that’s what makes it so wonderful here in our small tent village in the middle of nature.
Our first night camp is set up on Tärnätt Islands, where we are surrounded by the sea, sandy beaches, and cliffs. Here, you can also learn more about wool and create your own wool products together with Woolpower.
There are plenty of camping spots right by the sea. Find your own little oasis here.
Meet people from all around the world at one of the campfires.
Breakfast with friends right by the sea.
Relaxation in the beautiful nature.
”This is seriously life. I’m so happy I came along.”
The second night camp is located in a field in the middle of the forest at the foot of Gyltberget and near Dalsjöfallet. We start some fun competitions with great prizes for those who want to participate, set up a kiosk, and Naturkompaniet shares their best tips at the top of Gyltberget with fantastic views.
At the second night camp, we’ll open a small kiosk, and you can also participate in some competitions with great prizes.
Further into the forest, you’ll find Dalsjöfallet, which (depending on rainfall) can offer a fantastic shower experience.
You must not miss hiking up to Gyltberget, where you’ll find Naturkompaniet and breathtaking views.
SATURDAY 11.00 am – 4:00 pm
MT. SKULEBERGETS TOP CABIN
We reach the finish line at the top of Mt. Skuleberget and the Top Cabin. The rush of euphoria when you reach the top is indescribable. The Top Cabin opens at 11 am and close at 4 pm. Throughout the morning and afternoon more and more hikers will reach the top hearing cowbells and enthusiastic applause from other hikers who already made it across the finish line. Take a seat on the terrace by the Top Cabin and take in your accomplishment, the stunning views a join in on the cheerful spirit and great atmosphere. You did it!
You will be met by cheering and applause when crossing the finish line. Of course we all join in and do the same for the hikers after us.

SATURDAY 5.00 – 11:00 pm
After-Hike at FriluftsByns Courtyard is one of the highlights of this event. We start at 5:00 pm where we have reserved the small Wind Shelter for us High Coast Hikers. Around 7 pm other guests will leave and we have the whole Courtyards to ourself. Best is if you have the patience to let the others eat and then we get going from 19:00. Delicious food and drink, music from the High Coast best cover band Härmast Närmast, spontaneous dancing. Just a really good time that you do not want to miss.
That feeling. To have a seat and summarize a really awesome experience.
Live music, great company and camp fires. Everyone can join the After-Hike.
Somehow hikers get some newfound energy later in the evening and the urge to stretch those legs. Thats when the spontaneous dancing usually happens.
There is something special about relaxing, letting go and having fun with others in the outdoors.
