Y-buss operates buses from Stockholm and Arlanda as well as along the entire Norrland coast. Choose the Docksta bus stop. When you disembark, it’s only about a two-kilometer walk to FriluftsByn and the start of the High Coast Hike.

Breakfast. Energize for the hike. In FriluftsByn, you can buy breakfast and fuel up before the buses depart for the starting point.

Food and beverage
during the hike

When you check in for the High Coast Hike, you will pick up two breakfasts and five lunch/dinner meals. We collaborate with Outmeals, which many consider to make the absolutely tastiest outdoor food.

You will be pleasantly surprised by flavors like Vegetarian Spicy Pasta, Chicken Masala, Pasta Bolognese, Vegetarian Stroganoff with Rice and Mushrooms, etc. We have both flavorful freeze-dried meals that are a bit easier to carry and where you add boiling water, and ”wet canned” meals that are really delicious dishes already prepared, and you just warm them up in a cooking bag. We’ll show you how this works on the spot; it’s super easy.

You choose what you want to eat and, of course, also when you want to eat during the adventure.

Sit down and relax while the food is prepared. You only need to be able to boil water.

There are many highlights during the hike. The lunch breaks are one of them.

In the evenings, we gather at our shared night camps for dinner and cozy mingling.
