Put on your boots and get ready for a day hike
For those of you who don’t want to spend an entire summer week on the same trail, there are many shorter trails to explore. Take the chance to go on a fantastic day hike on the High Coast! Here are some tips to start with.
- If you are going on a day hike on the High Coast, Valkallen is a must. The view from the top defines what the High Coast Trail is all about. Waiting for the sunrise from up here on a light summer’s night is an experience that you will never forget.
- Omne Trail is a six-kilometre long trail that starts at the family-friendly swimming beach Omnebadet or at the village of Omne.

a secret tip!
Fäberget is a “secret” gem that I didn’t discover for many years. The mountain might become a popular place to visit now that it is being written about, but some more signposts and parking will need to be put in place. Or it might stay secret, you will have to do some research on the internet to find your way there. Fäberget is perfect for a quick outing. The hike is short and the views from the top are magic. It’s an incredible feeling to stand there and see Ullångersfjärden inlet spread out at your feet. You can maybe take a short evening hike here – pack a picnic dinner and enjoy it at the top.
