Always near the woods and the sea

Life in Hudiksvall

Hudiksvall is located in the Province of Hälsingland on the east coast of Sweden, about 300 km from Stockholm. The E4 European route passes close to the town’s boundary. Stockholm-Arlanda Airport is a two-hour trip away by train.

The central location of the travel terminal is particularly convenient for commuters. Situated on the Gulf of Bothnia, the town is surrounded by beautiful scenery and an archipelago. In the centre, there is the harbour with the beaches easily accessible from there on foot. Wherever you are in Hudiksvall, the forest and the sea are never far away. In winter, people head for the nearby ski areas in Hudiksvall, Järvsö and Hassela. The winter sports resort of Åre is three hours’ drive away. There are many trails in the vicinity for cross-country skiers, some floodlit. Ice fishing and skating are common leisure activities in the town itself. Music is very popular in Hälsingland and many different concerts are staged, ranging from traditional Swedish folk music to performances featuring local talent. In summer, the parade with old US road cruisers and the town festival with well-known artists attract many spectators and visitors.
