The High Coast Art Valley is, as the name describes, an art valley in the High Coast. You can find the art at schools, in cultural areas or completely independently. It is placed by the Nätterlund Memorial Fund. Together, the many works of art form a cultural trail that stretches from the Ulvöarna up along the Nätraälven valley. Along the way, in addition to art and culture, you will also experience magnificent nature experiences. Kulturdalens center consists of Herrgårdsparken in Köpmanholmen.

Höga Kusten shaped by the forces of nature

For 20,000 years, the forces of nature have shaped a dramatic landscape with the world's highest coastline. Here the mountains fall straight into the depths of the sea in a way that makes you breathless. The land uplift makes Höga Kusten unique in the world and since 2000 Höga Kusten has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The world record is measured at the top of Skuleberget, where the coastline has gone 286 meters higher than today's sea level. Today, land uplift continues at 8 mm per year. Hike up to the top of Skuleberget - where a magnificent view of the world heritage awaits. For the adventurous, climbing in Europe's largest Via Ferrata facility is recommended. At the foot of Skuleberget is Naturum Höga Kusten where you can take part in the land uplift's marvelous geological and cultural history and beautiful nature.

Ulvön – Höga Kustens largest fishing village

If you want to discover Höga Kustens archipelago, a trip to Ulvön or Trysunda is recommended. Well-preserved boathouses, residential houses and yeast banks in combination with a very beautiful nature make Ulvön a popular destination. Walk along Hamngatan and enjoy the authenticity and wonderful community that prevails. Here, among other things, a good selection of accommodation, restaurants and cafés coexist. For over 100 years, sour herring has been produced on Ulvön, today the production is small-scale, but of course you can now enjoy a flatbread sandwich with sour herring on the island. Ulvö old chapel was built in 1622 and is considered to be Ångermanlands oldest dated wooden building. A tip is to explore other parts of the island such as Sandviken or Fjären. Then camp on a cliff and enjoy a peaceful moment in the world heritage.
