Next level 2030

The next stage of our fantastic journey

In the last decade, the High Coast has been one of Sweden’s fastest growing destinations – since 2010 the number of annual guest nights has increased by 59%. In order to continue this positive trend over the next decade – and for it to be sustainable in the long term – a strategic approach for tourism towards 2030 has been developed. This process has been managed by Höga Kusten Destinationsutveckling, stakeholders from the public and business sectors and promoters of the tourism industry, who have all contributed in different ways. The strategy is based on an analysis of the outside world’s demands but also of course on the High Coast’s assets and what the tourism industry’s stakeholders and promoters are passionate about.


The strategy's aim and process are multifaceted. Due to the strategy affecting a large number of stakeholders, it is important that we:

We all want to work together

The initiative and work carried out to produce the strategic plan has been led by Höga Kusten Destinationsutveckling, but the strategy incorporates the entire High Coast region as a destination. Therefore, it doesn’t describe what the Höga Kusten Destinationsutveckling organisation will do, but rather what the destination as a whole wants to achieve.
The strategy has been developed with the aim to enable as many stakeholders as possible to pull together and move in the same direction. To ensure that we continue to work together, we need to light our friendly campfire often and gather all our stakeholders so we can remind each other of our joint vision and why it is needed, celebrate our successes and find solutions to any problems that arise along the way.



Goals 2030



There is always a next level

An attractive, sustainable and accessible
place to wish to come to

Maintain our friendly campfire feeling


Carbon neutral destination

Local ambassadors



the system



adapted to
suit visitors

Our vision:
There is always
a next level
– bring on 2030!

We believe we are heading in the right direction, so it isn’t a change in direction we want, but rather for us to always be striving to reach the next level. As we head towards 2030, we want to make significant further developments in the tourism industry in the region.

With our passion, bravery and drive, we want to stimulate innovation and entrepreneurship and always strive for the next level, moving step by step towards 2030. We want to hold onto the “campfire feeling” we have identified as one of the reasons for our success thus far, both for those of us who live here and for those who visit us.

Measureable goals
towards 2030

In our vision, we feel strongly that the High Coast shall always strive for the next level and become a place that an increasing number of people want to come to – both to live and to visit. To further define our ambitions, we have developed a number of quantitative goals that will help us to continuously monitor if are on the right track.
