Entlang des Čáihnajohka hinunter in das Čunovuopmi

Day 11 – 13: Čáihnavagge – Čunojávri and two resting days

Cosy hike to the even more comfortable Čunojávri hut

by

In the morning we are still super tired from yesterday’s block field day. Actually we wanted to go over the Smáilerienpas to Lossi and from there through the Rienatvággi (Storsteinsfjellet) to Hunddalen, but the weather seems to be too unstable. Instead we go down to Čunojávri. Compared to the other huts on our tour the […]

Day 10: Skoaddejávri – Čáihnavagge

The infamous block field of Čáihnavagge

by

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

Breakfast in Sitas and then up the wall

by

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 8: Baugevatnet – Sitas

Too few reindeer, too many electricity pylons and a cosy afternoon at the lake

by

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

On this night of a thousand stars

by

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 6: Kåbtåjaure – Pauro

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

by

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

Lakes, reindeer and great views

by

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 […]

Day 4: Gränsleden Sårgåjávrre – Røysvatnet

From the Gränsleden to the Nordkalottleden, without a sauna at all

by

After we made good progress yesterday, we don’t have it very far to the hut today. The alarm clock rings at 7 a.m. so that we can get to the hut early and enjoy half a day in the hut. We dally a bit in the morning, but at 8:40 we starts. The first sunbeams […]

Wir gehen nicht grad in Richtung Schönwetter....

Day 3: Gränsleden Akkajaure Västenden – Sårgåjávrre

A tale of swamp crossings and rainbows

by

A good hiking day starts with a steep ascent – or something like that. From our campsite at the lake we go up through the birch forest. It is shortly after 10 o’clock, once again we used our usual hour to pack. Today’s schedule after yesterday’s exertions is clear: we go as far as we […]

Day 2: Gränsleden Sievgok – Akkajaure Västenden

100 steps and clattering Reindeer

by

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 […]
