The province of Ångermanland is mostly known for the High Coast area, a mountainous UNESCO World Heritage Site with fjords and deep bays. In this northeast part of Sweden, you’ll find cities like Örnsköldsvik and Härnösand and natural wonderlands like Skuleskogen National Park – a great place for hiking.
