HIKE THE HIGH COAST OF SWEDEN
The High Coast of Sweden
The High Coast of Sweden is one of two Natural World Heritage Sites in Sweden and has been voted Swedens most beautiful nature. During the High Coast Hike you will experience the highlights of the High Coast – Coastal mountains, deep forests and a shimmering coastline.
About the Hike
The High Coast Hike does not require any knowledge in reading maps with compass since you will follow well marked trails. However you need to be able to check your whereabouts. The Hike is very varied and sometimes tough while other parts cuts through beaches and forests. Estimate between 6 to 8 hours of active hiking per day. That gives plenty of time to take an afternoon nap, take nice pictures and go for a swim in the ocean or the lakes..
During the pre-evening on Wednesday and before the buses depart on Thrusday we will go through the map. Then you will also get the latest information about where you can get fresh water during the hike. Do not miss the map-check.
