Tour of 2018 – Day 4, July 30th 2018

Camp at Vassajavri Turned out none of us slept any good at that last camp, personally, I woke up repeatedly and in the first half of the night never went deep enough to notice I actually slept at all... Only a look at the clock told me how much time had past. It rained rather…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 4, July 30th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 3, July 29th 2018

Camp at bridge over Vierrojohka We went to bed early last night and everyone was probably asleep by 9pm, I know for sure that I was. The frenzy of the last week before departing obviously had caught up with me when I started relaxing out here in nature! Slept super well and woke up just…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 3, July 29th 2018

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

20:15 Camp in center of Kaskasavagge   Sitting in my tent looking through the valley towards Kungsleden in the far distance and enjoying the reflection of the beautiful evening sky in the perfectly still water of the lake in front of me.
