A 1½h drive will get us to the boat jetty of Spikarna where water taxis will bring us to the island of Storholmen, a former 15,2 cm costal battery where the guns are preserved and some of the things in the over 1,4 km long tunnel system. We’ll explore this for around 5h with a plan to be back on the mainland.
A 40 min drive will get us to the southern part of Sundsvall and the re-opened 7,5 cm m/57 battery where the central bed-rock tunnel and at least one gun is open but mostly stripped of equipment.
Night in downtown Sundsvall.

4 august
A 1½h drive will get us to the city of Ånge where a privately owned civil defence command central will be visited. Another 45 min will get us to Gällö where the military had a huge storage facility during the Cold war. This was transferred to a cross country ski tunnel a few years back and we’ll explore the mountain for around 3h.
Another 2½h drive will get us to Sveg for a overnight stay. En route we’ll stop outside the small village of Åsarna where the military made a redundant road on the river bed to be able to cross a river even with bridges destroyed.

5 august
After breakfast, a long drive through the mid-Sweden wilderness with stops. At 13:00 we’ll arrive at Tyfors for visits. Tyfors 1 and Tyfors 2 are two facillities making gun-powder during the 2WW. One is above ground and one below.
After some 5-6 hours here we have 1h to the hotel in Ludvika, arriving around 20:00.

6 august
1½h drive will get us to Sala Silver mine where we’ll have a free walk around both above and below ground for a normal visit. We’ll coordinate departing flights with a transport of 1h20min from Sala to Arlanda.
