A departure on Monday has the clear advantage that we can pack comfortably at the weekend. The alarm clock at 3:30 a.m. is nevertheless very early. After preparing a small breakfast for the airport, Sissy and Karl take us to the airport at 4.15 – many thanks for the always reliable shuttle service! ❤️
We say goodbye to our backpacks (this gesture has always brought us luck on our outward flights) and a few minutes later we already see our gate on the screen. While waiting for boarding, we eat breakfast, get some sleep and soon the boarding begins. The flight is on time and we sleep well with our new inflatable neck cushions. ?
We take the airport bus to the center – and again we have to wait, namely for the bus to Nikkaluokta, the starting point of our tour. We sit down at the picnic table and chat with some people who are also waiting for different buses. A couple wants to go to Abisko and is planning almost the same tour we did last year. Now we could already give them some tips!
At 4 pm we reach our destination after a pleasant bus ride and check in at our own hut, which we reserved yesterday. 🙂
The nature, the peace, the autumn colours – like a dream! We walk back to the lake (we liked the view from the bus so much) and up to the Sami church.
We are already quite tired, so we move to the hut right away. We push the beds together, read for a couple of minutes, however, not for long. Good night!
