Day 10: Skoaddejávri – Čáihnavagge

The day begins stormy, at least the sun is shining and with 10°C, it is not cold. Especially not when it’s uphill again right after the hut. We start at 8 o’clock and want to be in Čáihnavagge before the announced bad weather arrives. This means that we now descend from our 1100 m altitude […]

Day 9: Sitas – Skoaddejávri

Eggs sunny side up! Fried bacon! Bread! Coffee! Orange juice! Harald invites us for breakfast – can you imagine how happy we were after a week of muesli and freeze-dried food? Actually we shouldn’t have started too late today, but we gossip with Harald and the boys for a long time, have a great breakfast […]

Day 6: Kåbtåjaure – Pauro

Next stop: Pauro! We start fully motivated, with bright sunshine and also quite early in the morning, alarm clock at 7, at 8:15 we leave. The way leads along the lake – not too close to the lake, but also not too high on the slope is the motto and as always it is a […]

Day 5: Røysvatn – Kåbtåjaure

We slept so well – one night all alone in a cosy hut, in absolute seclusion. Our alarm clock goes off at 7.30 and we are really well rested. We pack our things, clean our little hut – you remember: leave it always more beautiful than you found it yourself. Emptying the sewage, fetching enough […]

Norway 2018 – The route

After two fantastic tours in the Swedish Fjäll, this autumn’s long distance hike takes us to the Norwegian-Swedish border area. Our tour starts in Ritsem and leads west on the Gränsleden until we reach the Nordkalottleden and follow it north. In this section our route runs alternately in Norway and Sweden. At Gautelisvatnet we leave […]

Day 13: Kårsavagge – Abisko

Today is already our last stage, about 15km through the Kårsavagge, rather downhill. We get up at 8 o’clock, very tired and the snorer himself looks very tired too, at least! We have crispbread with salami for breakfast and are invited by the Swedes for fresh coffee, the first coffee since the Kebnekaise mountain station. […]

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 […]

Day 5 and 6: Nallo – Vistas & rest day

After the amazing Northern Lights we are already awake at 7:30 a.m., still excited and tell our Swedish hut colleague, who didn’t want to get up during the night, how intense the play of shapes and colours was. We have breakfast, chat with the warden and for the descent into the Visttavággi we get the […]
