| The Midnight
Sun Coast is a 1,500 kilometre (900 mile) stretch of Baltic
coastline which runs all the way to the Finnish border. In the south
are the trim forests of the province of Gästrikland, and immediately
to the north of this region is Hälsingland with its extensive
lakes, spectacular views and typical wood built mansions.
Forestry has traditionally been the main industry of Medelpad,
today 1 of Sweden’s most industrialised areas, although there
are plenty of opportunities for visitors who want to fish in untouched
outback country or rent a cottage in the middle of a countryside
rich in prehistoric monuments and relics of ancient cultures.
The province of Ångermanland contains some
of Sweden’s most breathtaking scenery, consisting of islands,
forests, lakes, fjords and mountains plunging dramatically to the
sea. This brilliant district is called the High Coast.
Västerbotten offers un touched wilderness and the
Norrland Riviera coastline is ideal for a relaxed holiday. There
are also many clear lakes and rivers teeming with fish, and excellent
roads lead inland to the southern part of Lapland.
Further north along the coast at Lövånger
there are 100's of renovated timber cottages which are rented out
to holiday makers. Nearer the Arctic Circle the air and water temperatures
in the summer are much the same as in the Mediterranean therefore
this area has an brilliant sunshine record.
is a fisherman’s heaven with plenty of mountain streams and
