Hudiksvall is a city in Hälsingland, Sweden and the seat of Hudiksvall Municipality, Gävleborg County. Situated nearly 200 miles northwest of Stockholm, Hudiksvall is a treasure trove of 18th and 19th century architecture.
This delightful seaside village with its colorful painted doorways highlight the charming old red fishermen's cottages in Fiskarstan and Möljen, while the view of the bay from the terraced Hantverksgården is lovely. Known as Glada Hudik, or "Lively Hudiksvall," during its heyday in the mid 1800s, Hudiksvall is still quite high spirited when summer visitors fill the cafés and restaurants.
