Höga Kusten near Bönhamn: During the last ice age all of Scandinavia was covered by ice. The ice masses were about 3 km thick and their weight pressed the country down. After the melting of the ice masses, the land began to rise. At 285 m, the Höga Kusten area has the highest isostatic ground elevation in the world since the last ice age | Sweden
