Stortorget's incomparable views
The view from the 150 meter high mountain Stortorget in Häggvik is perhaps the most and the best the High Coast can offer. It is by far the county’s most depicted view and has been immortalized by artists, photographers and tourists of all times.
Mannaminne is located at the foot of the mountain. The top is accessible on foot and definitely worth a visit as the views are magnificent. Once up there, you look out over Häggvik and Gaviksfjärden and you can fantasize about what it looked like here 100 years, 1000 years, 5000 years, 10000 years ago. Up on the mountain there is a high-lying cobblestone field, and from the view you can study other effects of the ongoing land uplift. At your feet is also Vågsfjärden, which was laced from the sea 150 years ago and is now a lake.
The trail to the top starts at hotel Mannaminne and is quite steep. It takes about 20-30 minutes to get up. Children over the age of 5 can probably handle the walk if they are promised a nice icecream on their way back. Also, look for blueberries on the way up! This might keep the energy on a good level.
From the lookout point, a barely noticeable path goes west through the forest. If you follow it, you will soon come to another impressive view. From here you see Nordingrå church, villages and mountains.
The landscape is heavily hilly with forested mountains and valleys with agricultural land and lakes. It offers a magnificent panorama to the south and west.
