Ascent Trip ReportSvinhöjden is a traditional highpoint in the Örebro county and we visited at a vacation in Sweden in 2003. Our US highpointing interest gave us an idea to document and visit the Swedish highpoints, creating the sverigestak.org website.
Sweden have counties, these are politically divisions, with a governor as the political top.
There is also a very old traditional division that we named provinces to differ them from the political counties. The counties change sometimes but the provinces don't.
We parked along the dirt road and climbed to the top. The view was nice.
My personal map reading and also contacts with the federal map department made Svinhöjden obsolete in July 2008. The new highpoint is Eskilsberget at the three county border just north of the Svinhöjden.
