SKULEBERGET

The mountain rises 295 mt above the sea. On the top of Skuleberget you find the highest shoreline in the World - 286 mt above the current coastline, there is a metal band nailed to the rock to mark it. The land uplift continues and is current 8 millimeters a year (and when Skuleberget has rose further 14 meters will it be in the same level as before the ice age 9500 years ago).

Several paths, that you can easily reach walking or biking from your mooring in Docksta, deliver you to the top of the mountain. You can also reach the top with the "Linbana" (chair lift).

NATURUM

Introducing High Coast's story, and the network of heritage site throughout the coast, the Naturum Höga Kusten Museum is the starting point for anyone who wants to know more about the elevation of the land, which was the reason behind it's nomination as a World Heritage site. There are permanent and temporary exhibitions at all times, plus other activities during the spring/summer season. The exhibit, which examines the land uplift, the geology and the life on the High Coast, takes a modern and playful approach with special information bars where visitors can learn about the many themes. There is a reception with helpful people, a study room, a workshop and a café. There is also a lecture hall, where visitors can watch films, and a library with literature related to Nature and the High Coast. The total exhibit area is 375 square meters and the approach is family friendly. Info (in Swedish) at Naturum website >
