Day 1 – July 24th, 2020

Camp north of Garmasbakti

Just a short hike today, SAS rescheduled my flight a few times due to the COVID-19 situation, and I ended up starting my tour in Nikkaluokta at about 5 pm for logistical reasons.

So almost the same start as last year, only I went a little farther up this time, making camp right next to the small lakes.

Really a beautiful spot and so far the weather is way better than the forecast, fingers crossed that it continues!
Aiming for an early night, I hope to wake up with a dry tent and head for Tarfala, should the weather be really wet I probably take another route as the climb down to Tarfala is just a little bit too unpleasant to do in lousy weather. Steep, slippery, and with lots of loose gravel it represents an unnecessary risk and I made up my mind to enjoy this tour to the fullest! Time will tell 🙂
