Day 11: Unna Allakas – Abiskojaure

Today we hike through the Gámavuopmi from Unna Allakas to Abiskojaure. It is by far the most colourful stage on our tour. The autumn colours are the absolute highlight, the mountain birches shine in all colours from yellow to red, the Fjäll is also autumnally colourful. Once again we are very lucky with the weather, […]

Day 8: Alesjaure – Unna Allakas

Our alarm clock goes at 7:15 again and today we don’t have much to pack. Elisabeth feels a little sick, so we skip breakfast and still it takes until 8:45 until we get away. Right from the hut we have a beautiful view of the Alesjaure – Tjäktja route. The Tjäktja pass, what a wonderful […]

We have breakfast, chat with the warden and for the descent into the Visttavággi we get the […]

Day 4: Sälka – Nallo

After the exhausting hike yesterday we slowly start into the day, whereas Heidi and Markus unfold clearly more activity. We wake up halfway as they heat up the Swedish stove. While we are still snuggling up in our sleeping bags, Heidi is already grabbing the yoga mat, Markus his Nikon and they are gone. We […]

Day 2: Nikkaluokta – Kebnekaise Fjällstation

We can hardly wait for the start anymore, that explains the atypically early alarm clock at 7 o’clock and the fact that we are the second at the very rich breakfast buffet shortly afterwards. We enjoy the breakfast, knowing that the next days we have to cut down on culinary delights. After breakfast we clean […]
