Destination High Coast mediate experiences in prehistoric and present times in the High Coast world heritage area through nature experiences, accomodation, conferences and activities, for both private persons and groups.

Are you interested in amazing nature experiences in northern Sweden such as fishing, canoing or trekking? Or maybe you are looking for an experience that is totally genuine and swedish? Then you have come right!

We are a company in the beautiful world heritage area of the High Coast in the province of Ångermanland that offers you high quality nature- and culture experiences all year round.

Nature experiences

We arrange several fishing tours with guide in the magnificent archepelago of the High Coast, and also fishing in lakes. Here you can catch both pike and trout .

If you like sea adventures we also offer boat charter tours to the well known islands of the High Coast– for example Ulvön and Högbonden. We have canoes, kajaks and bicycles for rent, and if you would like to stay over night on your tour we arrange accomodation in big, traditional tents and make open-air food.

At the beautiful recreation center of Lappudden in Nordingrå– the heart of High Coast- you´ll find most things that make a nice holiday close to nature– cosy cabins and rooms for rent, access to sauna, traditional barbeque hut and outdoor bath just by the beautiful lake of Vågsfjärden, and of course a piece of amazing nature. Lappudden is a perfect place for fishing,-boat- and canoe tours in the archepelago, and the High Coast trekking route crosses the center, which means Lappudden is also a perfect place for accomodation during trekking. For hungry guests we can arrange dinners and lunches, and why not try some of our special activities during the summer like shooting with bow and arrow or forge by the blacksmith of the farm. Lappudden is opened every day from June to August. Other times of the year you must prebook your visit.

Culture experiences in ”Gene Ironage village”

Beside nature experiences we also offer you unic culture experiences on the reconstructed Ironage farm of ”Gene fornby” from 6th Century A.D., located by the beautiful bay of Bäckfjärden close to the city of Örnsköldsvik. Big archeological excavations in the 1970 ies showed that a chiftain and his family lived here as farmers about 2000 years ago.

”Gene fornby” is opened all year round for prebooked groups, and we arrange conferences, Ironage dinners for companies and private groups, guided tours and ironage activities.

As a visitor during summer you pay an entrance fee and then join a guided tour at the reconstructed farm and meet the chieftain and his family members dressed in Ironage clothes and acting like Ironage people. You can also try activities like baking bread and forging in the smithy.

Beside this you can have a cup of coffe in the café of ”Järnkrogen” or just relax on the beautiful beach and take a bath in the sea.

The High Coast trekking route passes Gene fornby.   A perfect start or end of your trekking!

If you like to try a a special kind of accomodation we recommend you to stay overnight in the reconstructed Ironage house of Gene Fornby– you won´t be disappointed!
