Discovering Åstön’s Coastal Charm

Located along the east coast of Tynderösundet in Timrå municipality, Åstön beckons with its rugged cliffs and tranquil shores. I start my hike from Åkerö and hike through a sand pine woodland towards the coast. I also used to start my hikes from Skeppshamn.

Embracing the Arrival of Spring

Following a stretch of cold days and fresh snowfall, the emergence of warm spring weather set the perfect stage for my photographic outing.

A Campsite with a View

Setting up camp next to the cliffs, I was greeted by a lovely vista that promised stunning photographic opportunities.
