Hemsö Fortress
Det här företaget har GULD-medlemskap i Höga Kusten Turism och uppfyller högt ställda krav på sin verksamhet.

For 50 years Hemsö fortress was a top-secret facility, and only a select few were permitted to visit it. The Cold War was in full swing when it was built in the 1950s and 1960s.
Both east and west were struggling to win the arms race, and it felt as though nuclear war was sometimes imminent. The fortress was built and used in this climate, forming an extremely important and secret part of
Sweden’s coastal defences. Today Storråberget, the hill where the fortress is located, is an exciting and popular tourist destination. Café and restaurant. Guided tours every full and half hour during summer.

It is possible to go out to Hemsön and dock to one of Hemsöns guest harbor. Hultom guest harbor & Båthushamns guest harbor. It is also possible to get picked up at the harbor and get a ride to Hemsö Fortress and back after the visit is done.
The pick up must be booked a day before by phone: 070-5441320 & 070-3702360.

For tourists who find it difficult to get out by public transport, there is a possibility to get a pick-up in town and taken out to Hemsön, you will also be taken back to town. Call: 070-5441320 & 070-3702360.
