Tour of 2018 – Day 10, August 5th 2018

Sitashyttene For once I’m actually writing this sitting inside of a cabin, I just finished dinner and enjoy a cup of coffee and some 90% dark chocolate. Got up this morning at quarter to 7 am after almost 11h in the sleeping bag, my body needed rest and it was raining in the early morning…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 10, August 5th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 9, August 4th 2018

Camp below the southern mouth of Dolbotvagge This day had a theme of walking on rocks and covering elevation, most of the tour happened in higher altitudes, over 900m, and involved a lot of stepping from rock to rock. I started at 990m, went down to 630m, up to 1270, down to 1100, up again…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 9, August 4th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 8, August 3rd 2018

Camp near Storsteynshytta Woke up early and just stayed in my sleeping bag as I didn’t want to disturb the guests inside the cabin. Turned out I should have followed my first instinct and packed everything up - minutes after 6 am it started to rain heavily. Not until 8 the rain lightened enough to…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 8, August 3rd 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

Camp at Nissonvaggijohka This was another great hiking day with amazing weather, actually the sun woke me up at 5am and I had to get out of the sleeping bag to cool down and fall back to sleep.

Tour of 2018 – Day 1, July 27th 2018

Camp at Cuonjajavri A day of travel, it turned out that there were no really good connections from Kiruna that fitted our arrival from Stockholm, ARN, and we ended up spending over 3.5h in Kiruna. The day started a little challenging with one from the group sleeping in, yet our driver was super friendly and…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 1, July 27th 2018
