The World Heritage Site and the High Coast Trail

Höga Kusten was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2000, it is the geological uplift of the land that makes the area unique. Nowhere else in the world has land risen to such extent since the last Ice Age and the area is still rising by 8 mm per year. The result is unique sights such as till-capped hills, rubble fields and exceptional caves. The World Heritage Site streaches from the High Coast Bridge in the south to Skagsudde in the north. The area also includes Skuleskogen National Park. This is a beautiful, dramatic undulating landscape with fascinating plant life and breathtaking views. Visit Naturum Höga Kusten, located at Skuleberget for more information.
