This open-air village has become the perfect gathering place for adventure and relaxation mixed with the right amount of exhilarating events. FriluftsByn assembles friends, families and retirees eager to explore and get to know the unique nature of the High Coast, each in their own way. “Some choose to hike and paddle, while others opt to go on short trips in the mountains, at sea or in the deep forests,” founder and manager Jerry Engström explains. The area of the High Coast is part of the striking coast of Sweden on the Gulf of Bothnia and is, unsurprisingly, known in particular as an excellent region for hiking.
