The Höga Kusten – or 'High Coast' in English – might be one of the most beautiful parts of Sweden and is definitely a real treat for nature lovers. This UNESCO World Heritage site is a popular destination among tourist and is receiving more and more visitors every year. One reason for this could be how much it has to offer and how varied these options are, making it an appealing destination for all kinds of travellers.
If you're visiting the Höga Kusten area in the winter, you'll be able to enjoy a wide range of winter activities. Of course, skiing and snowboarding are possible and some tracks even offer the possibility of skiing with dogs during a few hours a week. Ice fishing is also a popular pastime in the area – salmon trout and Arctic char are the fish you'll most likely find. Dogsledding, snowshoe hikes and snowmobiling are other winter activities available and a great and original way of enjoying the landscape.
Though when we think of Sweden what may come to mind first are white landscapes and cold winter days, its long summer days allow for numerous and enjoyable outdoor activities. Whether you prefer more relaxing choices such as lying on the beach, bathing in a lake and having a barbecue or you're more into active holidays, playing beach volleyball, going wind surfing or going hiking – there is always something for everyone on the Höga Kusten.
