Ferry to Högbonden and Hemsön

 

Högbonden is a nature reserve in the coastline of the High Coast. The island rises sharply out of the Bothnian Sea. Positioned at the top of the Island is the old lighthouse. Today, the old lighthouse keeper’s accommodation is a newly renovated hostel called Högbonden Fyr & Vandrarhem. There are a few hiking trails on the Island, and in the summer there is a café open. 

To get to Högbonden, you will take the ferry M/S Ronja from either Barsta or Bönhamn. The travel time is around the same, which is about 15 minutes. Parking in Barsta is for free, while there is a small fee in Bönhamn. 

Hemsön is a big Island in the southern part of the High Coast. The most popular destination on the Island is Hemsö Fästning, which is an old fortress from the Cold War. The fortress is now open to the public and offers guided tours in a very exciting environment. Finish the tour with a “Swedish Fika” or food in the restaurant with one of the High Coast most beautiful views. 

To Hemsön there is a car ferry going every day. In the summertime, the ferry goes more frequently, which is about two to three times an hour. The ferry is free and leaves from Strinningen. Here you will find a schedule for the ferry to Hemsön .
