Lyskväll at Skutbryggan

Last Saturday in August

Lyskväll is a relatively young tradition along the Hälsingland coastline. The tradition originates from the Finnish side of the Baltic Sea and has become a rather romantic end to the summer season.

In Strömsbruk it’s the Boat Club, The Strömfacklan organisation and Kustleden that are in charge of the evening and hundreds of outdoor candles are lit along beaches and on islands and islets outside the Skutbryggan harbour. As a rule Strömfacklan organises a lottery, quiz walk and food while Kustleden offers free coffee and something sweet.
