Day 30 – August 26th 2017

19:40 Abisko Tourist Station Clean, warm and cozy - my feelings this evening comprised into three words. Woke up in a soaked tent, had a lazy morning hanging out at the cabin in Abiskojaure and getting an interview done with one of the cabin hosts. The 14km to Abisko are a really easy hike and…Read more Day 30 – August 26th 2017

Day 1 – March 23rd 2018

After driving around some to find a trail head with reasonably decent parking space, I finally started the hike from Aspradi along the road to Stradovuoni at 1:30PM. Going for approximately 1.5 hours, mostly on gravel yet some dirt roads and paved stretches, took me to Kornos picnic area where I could sit in the…Read more Day 1 – March 23rd 2018

Day 24 – August 20th 2017

10:20 Kebnekaise station Wow, what a breakfast!!! Waking up in time to be there at 06:00 when they opened was a non issue, I frankly didn't sleep very well or much at all. There was a heavy rain falling most of the night, the noice of drops falling on the tarp keeping me from getting…Read more Day 24 – August 20th 2017

Day 23 – August 19th 2017

 07:00 Camp in Sinnivagge It's a beautiful morning, I got out of the sleeping bag about half an hour ago and have just finished my first coffee with coconut oil. The sky was already mostly blue and clear yet the sun still hidden behind Sinnibakti. Soon after the earth had rotated enough for the…Read more Day 23 – August 19th 2017

Day 22 – August 18th 2017

08:00 Camp in center of Kaskasavagge The night here in Kaskasavagge was cold and comfortable, what a difference when not having to make an effort to just keep the equipment dry. Frankly I can't remember when I woke up with a dry tent last time, I'd have to go back and look through my journals.…Read more Day 22 – August 18th 2017

Day 20 – August 16th 2017

06:10 Camp at Hukejaure cabin Sitting in my tent after waking up early and just enjoying the sun shining down on me and slowly warming the air inside here. I have to admit that, even though I don't complain and commiserate about the weather anymore, having the sun shine down on me definitely makes the day…Read more Day 20 – August 16th 2017

Day 19 – August 15th 2017

07:15 Camp at the most northern small lake in the valley west of Unna Ruskkas It's been a cold night, I've been wrapped up in my sleeping bag wearing t-shirt and socks and still never got really warm. The wind and rain stopped at some point during the second part of the night and it…Read more Day 19 – August 15th 2017

Day 18 – August 14th 2017

08:00 Camp at the eastern lake in Sanarvaggi It's been a very windy night with some rain and, for once up here, I did not sleep very well. The wind made the tent shake heavily and though I have total faith in it taking a beating like this, the noise and movement still disrupted my…Read more Day 18 – August 14th 2017
