Hoga Kusten Leden (High Coast Trail) 129 km, Central Sweden's East Coast.

3 weeks in Scandinavia, September 2016- this was the timeframe of the solo mission I was on in an area of our planet I have been hankering to visit and get all sweaty and muddy... and hopefully be blown away by the scenery and wild places I had heard so much about.
Firstly, I flew into Oslo, got my bearings for a few days with some nice IPA's and easy hiking and ran the Black River Run 100 mile Ultramarathon in Vasteras, Sweden.  Rockin good fun!
A bit of sleep, quite a few Max hamburgers and a gentle train ride past rolling farmland and tightly packed spruce and pine forests up to Harnosand on the East Coast lead to the start of my thru hike of the High Coast Trail.
I spent the night at Villa Sedin B&B near the centre of Harnosand.
