2. JOIN THE PARTICIPATION GROUP >>
In our facebook group you’ll receive updates about the adventure. It is definitly prefered if everyone who is joining is in the Facebook group so not just one person knows what’s happening. In this group you can also ask questions and get tips from other hikers. We will also go over the map well in advance among other things.
Great, take me to the Facebook group >>
3. STAY IN FRILUFTSBYN >>
Make the most convenient choice and stay in Friluftsbyn before the adventure. Then you are on site from the beginning and if you chose to camp the night before the event you have a great opportunity to test out the gear and make adjustments if needed. You could also reserve a cabin if you planned ahead.
A camp spot in FriluftsByn is included the night between Saturday and Sunday. We don’t recommend that you get right in the car on Saturday after hiking for three days straight, you also really do not want to miss the Ater-Hike on Saturday evening.

4. JOIN THE PRE-EVENING
You’ll find all information you need on this website, we will also do a live in the Participation group on Facebook a week before the event. We do still recommend that you join us on the Pre-Evening for the final run through of the hike.
In a friend group there is normally that one person with all the lists and details of the trip, please make sure that everyone have a good idea of what this hike intel and what to expect. The Pre-Evening is a great time to catch up. There will be live music, great burgers, camp fires and a general really good time. Perfect relaxing start to the three fun filled days to come.

Tips for first time hikers >>
The High Coast Hike is for sure a challenge, but you will also have time to take in and enjoy the many views. If either of you gets a pebble in your shoe, need to adjust the backback or make a change in clothing – stop and do that. You’ll have plenty of time and it is light almost 24/7 here in the summertime. This is not a race, its an opportunity to meet and hangout with like-minded people in breathtaking nature while having a lot of fun.
Stop and go for a swim in Tärnättvattnet and in the ocean. Have a seat and a coffee at the top of a mountain. This is what we call a beautiful life.
7. SLEEP ”LIKE A CHAMP”
In the evening we meet up at the shared night camps. Here you can chose to pitch your tent more secluded or together with others. At the first night camp many go for a swim in the ocean before making dinner, relax on the cliffs and attend any of the workshops. At the second day night camp many hike to the top of Mr. Gyltberget and enjoy the views together with Naturkompaniet’s outdoor school.
As many of the hikers attending this event might not have hiked that much before, we put these tips together. Listen to these and you might sleep surprisingly well.

8. ASK QUESTIONS
During this hike you will meet guides from outdoor companies that are here for you. So please ask questions ”Does my tent look alriught?” or ”Could you help me adjust my back pack?” Naturkompaniet will join us on the hike and are pro’s on everything outdoor related.
However, do not hike in brand new hiking boots. Make sure you hiked atleast a few miles before attending the event. ALso make sure to pitche your tent a few times and that you know how to operate your outdoor stove. If you got those bases covered, this will be a great adventure.

9. AFTER-HIKE >>
We don’t want to say that one of the top moments of this hike is when you reach the top of Mt Skuleberget day three. But it is a truly incredible feeling to be out for three days with all the experiences that comes with that and then finally reach the finish line at the top of the World Heritage.
When you relaxed at the top for a while and helped cheer other hikers on we hike the High Coast Trail down to Friluftsbyn, take a shower and meet up again at the After-HIke over ber and a burger along with live music and lot of fun. You can pitch your tent in Friluftsbyn for free the night between Saturday and Sunday, so there is literally no good reason to miss out on this!
HIKE THE HIGH COAST HIKE
WITH YOUR FRIENDS
High Coast Hike is a safe, incredibly bebautiful and exciting adventure for hte whole family. Every yesra many parents come, by themself or with their partner, to expericen the World Heritage High Coast together with their kids. This is how you create moments of a lifetime.
How difficult is the High Coast Hike? We asked some of our hikers to tell us what they think.
HOW HARD IS IT?
This question is difficult as it is so much up to each persons own ability. It actually took a bit of convincing for us to even add "kilometer per day" as it is pretty irrelevant here in the High Coast. It's equally as much about altitude meters and terrain as it is about length of hiking.
For you to ge the best possible experience we offer two different routes - the Regular route, which you can do if you are ir general good form and have hiked a little further with your packed backpack before. The we have the Pleasure route. which is great if you are a little uncertain, or if your hiking with kids or simply just want to enjoy the scenery and camp site chill even more. You can switch between the two routes each day if you wish. No matter which route you chose we end up at the same night camp all together.
The most crucial factor is wether you come prepared or not. For most hikers it is a new experience to hike with a back pack of arounf 15kg and therefore it is a good idea to test your gear before setting out on the High Coast Hike. If you test it out, know what to expect, this adventure will be a blast.
Wed: Pre-Evening >>
Thur 16 km or 8 km about 6-8h*
