Day 8: Baugevatnet – Sitas

We have to master a few meters of altitude in the morning. So we start the ascent shortly before 9, without breakfast. But before that we enjoy the view back. The first meters run along the lake Baugevatnet and as a morning surprise we see the first reindeer, this time they are older animals. We […]

Day 7: Pauro – Baugevatnet

After a very pleasant night in the hut we start after breakfast and cleaning at 9 am. The weather is sunny and warm again and the autumn fjäll shines with us. A last look back at the huts in Pauro. On the way we also see some snow grouses that are not shy at all. […]

Day 2: Gränsleden Sievgok – Akkajaure Västenden

When we wake up, we realize it’s not going to be our day. Markus has such a strong headache that he feels sick. We slowly dismantle the tent and at 10 o’clock we start today’s tour. We’re making good progress, the first section is mostly downhill. The following picture shows our way today: On the […]

Day 1: Gränsleden Ritsem – Sievgok

At 14 o’clock we finally start our tour! We take the road towards Sitasjaure and soon turn left to Gränsleden, which is hard to miss with a big sign. Today’s stage takes us to the Sievgok resting hut, where we will pitch our tent. According to our plan this is 8 kilometres, we expect to […]

Day 12: Abiskokaure – Kårsavagge

After a quick breakfast with some porridge we leave at 9:30 am. I’m very tired today, not the best conditions for the 700-meter climb (from 488 m to 1120 m) on the first five kilometers. 😐 The path first leads us along the lake shore, then uphill through the forest. The path is characterized by […]

Day 9 and 10: Unna Allakas

Days at the hut are great, especially when everything fits together: A beautiful hut with a great sauna, a very nice and humorous Stugvärd, who tells us many stories about the country and its people, and a breathtaking view out of the window. We slept very well. Markus gets up early, while I sleep until […]

Day 7: Vistas – Alesjaure

At 7:15 the alarm clock rings, today we continue our tour. After the lonely huts of the last days we hike to Alesjaure today and we are a little afraid of the crowds. After breakfast (porridge with cranberries) we pack our backpacks, clean the hut, say goodbye to Vintervik and at exactly 9:19 😉 we […]

Day 3: Kebnekaise Fjällstation – Sälka

At 6:20 the alarm clock rings. Since we have a long hike ahead of us today, we need to start early. The breakfast buffet offers a lot of choice, but we are not allowed to eat too much, after all we have to move again right away. On the way back to the hut we […]
