The High Coast Trail The guide was updated:Walk the High Coast trail and you will get the opportunity to experience some of the world heritages absolute treats. It will take you through beautiful woodlands, mountains with stunning views, rocky coasts, bays, and protected nature areas. There are several activities, detours and experiences to discover and try along the trail.
The High Coast Trail extends between Hornöberget at the end of Ångermanälven and central Örnsköldsvik. The trail is well marked with orange paint on trees and poles. In addition, there is a signpost with distances statements or directional arrows with the High Coast Trail symbol at crossroads and trail branches. The shelters and unlocked cabins that are available along the trail is at the wanderer's availability and can not be pre-booked. You can also not exclude other visitors.
Most of the accommodations, such as hotels, hostels, and guest houses are bookable online at www.hogakusten.com.
In Örnsköldsvik, Kramfors, and Härnösand you will find tourist offices that are open all year round. During the summer, the tourist offices at Hornöberget and Nordingrå are open.
Sections: The High Coast Trail is 128.6 km long and is divided into 13 sections. The different sections have been made so that, in principle, within each stage, there is at least one overnight accommodation, from open and public cabins to hostels and hotels.
Every end of the sections is also accessible by car. The possibility of permanent parking can, however, be limited.
The different sections can help your plan and organise yourself for the trek. However, it is not something you are bound to follow. As mentioned earlier, there are a number of interesting side trips and activities to take part in on or near the High Coast Trail which can make some sections take longer times than others.
