Sections: The High Coast Trail is 128.6 km long and is divided into 13 sections. The different sections has been made so that, in principle, within each stage there is at least one overnight accommodation under roof, from open and public cabins to hostels and hotels. Every end of the sections are also accessible by car. The possibility of permanent parking can, however, be limited. The different sections can help your planning and organization 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.  If you want to make some comments about the trail and its condition, maybe even urgent action needs, please contact us on +46 (0)613-700 200.
