Hudiksvall is located by the coast, but the inland surrounding it is also spectacular.
Here you will find peaceful and widespread landscapes, and really be able to enjoy the Swedish outdoors.
Travel west from Hudiksvall, and visit the area around the Dellen lakes, the small communities of Bjuråker, Norrbo and Delsbo.
Ask at the tourist office in Hudiksvall for details on lodging. There are also several camping grounds here, some with amazing sceneries just around the corner.
Lake Dellen was created by a falling meteorite of 1,3 kilometers in diameter. 90 million years ago.
It is very deep - people used to believe it was bottomless...However modern science took the edge of this belief. The lake actually consists of two interconnected lakes, the North Dellen and the South Dellen (Norrdellen & Sördellen). The North one is the deepest - 250 metres in certain parts!
The best viewpoint over lake Dellen is the hill called Avholmsberget, and that is where I took the picture.
South of Hudiksvall you will find the small town of Iggesund. Ironworks was established here in 1685, and this photo is taken from the top of a large slag-heap and is a big reminder of the days of the ironworks. From here you have a great view down to the mansion beside the old iron mill.
Have a visit to the small fishing village Hölick at the Hornslandet peninsula and explore the beautiful archipelago from there.
This is part of the beautiful Jungfrukusten (the Virgincoast).
