Tour of 2018 – Day 13, August 8th 2018

Camp at the bridge west of Ubmasvarasj What a pleasant morning at Røysvatnhyttene, I slept in until about 8 am and enjoyed quite a few lazy hours in and around the cabin. Weather was sunny with a light breeze and it was very nice to sit outside with a cup of coffee just reading a book.…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 13, August 8th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 12, August 7th 2018

Camp at Røysvatnhyttene Well, my restful night inside the cabin turned out to be everything else but as expected. I woke up at 00:15 by the loud noises of people arriving, turned out that a group of 8-10 people just came in and intended to start cooking. After asking them twice to keep the noise…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 12, August 7th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 11, August 6th 2018

Pauro cabin After a rain-free early morning, the weather turned and rain shower after rain shower filled the morning hours. I spent more time than planned in the cabin and only left at 11 am when it looked like the rain had passed. No need to start a hiking day with rain if not absolutely…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 11, August 6th 2018

Day 15 – August 11th 2017

08:00 Camp at Liehtjitjavrre What a beautiful morning! I'm sitting in my tent with the abside open on the leeward side, facing the sun. The rather chilly wind from behind drives away most mosquitoes except for the very bravest, and the sun gives a nice warmth to the morning hours! As much as I spent time…Read more Day 15 – August 11th 2017

Day 11 – August 7th 2017

10:00 Staloluokta cabin As I got to bed a little later than usual I slept till around 07:30, waking up rested and feeling great. Soon thereafter I heard the first helicopter fly in over my tent and realized that I could very well could have had my sleep disturbed by civilization even in this remote…Read more Day 11 – August 7th 2017

Day 10 – August 6th 2017

07:15 Camp at Pårka, between Låddejåckå and Arasluokta Again I slept amazingly well, can't say if it's the ketogenic state helping with sleep also, yet I can definitely say that my sleep is better than I can recall from previous years up here. Tonight again I got my ideal nine hours, dreaming a lot of…Read more Day 10 – August 6th 2017

Day 9 – August 5th 2017

09:15 Camp at bridge over Tsiekkimjågåsj Obviously I needed some rest - first woke up at 05:15 and basically just turned around to snooze for a few minutes... Next things I know it's three hours later. I knew that I didn't get enough sleep the night before yet this was still an unexpected treat to be…Read more Day 9 – August 5th 2017

Day 7 – August 3rd 2017

07:50 Hukejaure cabin Woke up before 07:00 which gives me just short of nine hours sleep again, I really feel rested waking up here in the mountains. Even if I don't sleep through entirely but wake up several times during the night, this seems to fit my personal rhythm rather well! Yesterday I noticed my…Read more Day 7 – August 3rd 2017
