In the middle of Sweden, along the coast of Hälsingland, lies Hudiksvall. For over a hundred years people have been talking about the city and the people here as "Happy Hudik". If you enjoy outdoor activities, sports and being out in the beautiful Swedish nature, then chances are that you will enjoy yourself in Hudiksvall.
Here you will find a magnificent and varied nature where you can enjoy both land and sea, city and forest, tradition and innovation, history and future. In addition, the archipelago - with over a hundred islands, long beaches and beautiful fishing villages - is a must experience.
Here there are good communication opportunities, with only 2.5 hours train journey to Stockholm and about ten kilometers to both Gävle and Sundsvall.
Nine kilometers south of Hudiksvall lies Iggesund, which is a typical industrial area. Iggesund also offers a rich outdoor life, with both forest and archipelago close at hand.
It is not obvious, but Iggesund is located on an island. The island is called Iggesundsön and is Hälsingland's largest island. Iggesund also has a magnificent and varied nature where you can enjoy both land and sea, city and forest.
The resort also has the Bodarna caves (Bodagrottorna), Europe's longest known underground caves. The system is approximately 2,600 meters long and is in some places three stories high.
Holmen's operations in Hudiksvall & Iggesund:
The growing forest is the basis of our business. We are part of the ecocycle from seedling to plank, where the raw material is refined into everything from wood for climate-smart buildings to renewable packaging, magazines and books. We also produce our own renewable energy from hydro and wind power. With a clear focus on sustainability in all aspects, Holmen contributes to a brighter future.
Together with Iggesund's sawmill, Iggesund's mill creates a biocombine with smart environmental solutions for the future. The mill supplies the sawmill with steam which is used to dry the timber and in return receives raw material in the form of wood chips to make pulp or energy.
