In nature

The lean-to shelter at Lomtjärnen, intended for breaks.

There are some really nice campsites in the forests around Härnösand and many are within walking distance from the center.

"Vindskydd" means lean-to shelter. They are free to use, without reservation, but often there is little infrastructure apart from the shelter itself, firewood and a fireplace, and there might not even be a suitable spot for a tent. Also some of the places that don't state that in the name have just such shelters.
