This is a longer kayaking route with three highlights all in the one trip. The islands you’ll visit along the way are like pearls on a necklace.
One absolute must is to glide in between the islands in Grisslan and say hello to the friendliest locals you’ll ever meet. Continue on to Trysunda and spend the night in the hostel there. Trysunda has been named Sweden’s most beautiful island and is a nature reserve. Continue on southwards towards Ulvön and go ashore at Ulvöhamn. Take the chance to spend the night here as well. Tent, rent a cottage or even better – check into the Ulvö Hotell and enjoy a delicious meal in their restaurant, before you paddle onwards towards the Norrfällsviken inlet and the mainland.
There are almost endless of opportunities for kayaking in the High Coast. Here are some of our favourite trips in the High Coast.
The High Coast Kayaking Route
The High Coast Kayaking Route is an excellent kayaking trip for active outdoor lovers who want to get even closer to nature without rushing too much. The trip is perfect if you want to combine kayaking with hiking in the Skuleskogen National Park or climbing Sweden’s highest island Mjältön.
Kayak trip from Bönhamn to Högbonden Lighthouse
This trip is a short but superbly beautiful route past the High Coast’s most popular old fishing village and the island Högbonden with its lighthouse.
A fantastic three-day trip down the Ångermanälven river. Start in Sollefteå where the river banks tower above you and finish in Härnösand in the High Coast’s southern archipelago.
Directly below Skuleberget is Norrfjärden inlet, one of the most popular inlets along the High Coast for kayaking. Thanks to its sheltered location, this trip is easier and is suitable for those with a little less experience.
Kayak trip around Mjältön
Paddling around the island of Mjältön is a good daytrip that will take you around Sweden’s highest island. You'll need to start early in the morning and take a big lunch with you.
