Nature & activities

Pure nature meets pure fun!

Nature is Kvarken Destinations’ greatest asset. Enjoy the open sea, towering mountains, deep forests and wide expanses! Hiking and biking through the horizontal lowlands of Kvarken, going vertical at the High Coast, rafting in Vindelälven or exploring some lighthouse islands, are just a few of the popular activities.
