The island of Ulvon along the High Coast of Sweden.

This summer I had the pleasure of visiting the Island of Ulvon, which is a popular destination for Swedes (although few people outside of Sweden seem to know about it). The trip to the island is done via ferry, which can also transport a small number of cars. I didn’t take my car. I parked on the mainland and just went by foot as I was staying close to the ferry terminal on the island.

In addition to being an absolutely beautiful location, I was also able to try Surströmming, which is a delicacy in Sweden. It is fermented herring, and it is one of the smelliest foods on Earth (and I am in no way exaggerating when I say this. Go check the YouTube videos of people smelling/tasting it for the first time). It smells so bad, it is almost always eaten outdoors. It actually tastes much better than it smells. It is the Swedish version of durian.

The entire High Coast of Sweden doesn’t get many foreign tourists, but it is a very popular destination for Sweden, especially in the summer. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is noted for being one of the fastest rising places in the world. In geology it is called isostatic rebound. The land is literally springing up from being compressed from the glaciers which covered the land 10,000 years ago. It rises about 8mm a year, which incredibly fast movement for rocks.
