Tour of 2018 – Day 21, August 16th 2018

Camp at Saltoluokta mountain station Once again I woke up early to the sound of rain falling on the tent, the weather had changed completely overnight and the beautiful clear evening last night had been replaced by thick fog and rain. Thankfully it stopped raining while I was going through my morning routine, still, the…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 21, August 16th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 20, August 15th 2018

Camp along the Kungsleden 5km North Sitojaure Again I wake up early, and again to the sound of raindrops falling on the tent. Not very alarming at 6 am, I’m in no hurry to leave, yet looking out and seeing I’m literally camping in the clouds at 1100m was a little more disturbing. As I…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 20, August 15th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 19, August 14th 2018

Camp at the creek junction west of Gierdogiesjtjåhkkå Finally, a day when the weather once more was playing nicely and invited both to a midday stop and going a little farther than I originally planned. After the early stop yesterday I woke up already at 5 am, spending the next half hour or so in…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 19, August 14th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 17, August 12th 2018

 Camp at Skarja Wow, what a night! It started raining around 4:30 pm yesterday and kept pouring down more or less intense the entire night and morning. Finally, shortly after 11 am the rain started to subside and minutes later I could wipe off the majority of the water from the rain fly. Just after…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 17, August 12th 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 14, August 9th 2018

Camp at Ritsem Woke up rather early around 6 am, felt rested and ready to start the day. The sky was cloudy and looked like it would rain later so I wiped off the tent first thing and let the rest of the moisture blow away in the wind while getting through my morning routine…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 14, August 9th 2018

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 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

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

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

 21:00 Camp next to Abiskojaure cabin Rain, rain, rain - was the name of the game today… I spent quite some time in Alesjaure waiting for the down pour to slow down, yet finally I had to start heading north towards Abiskojaure. Originally planning to camp just outside the National Park, I changed my…Read more Day 29 – August 25th 2017
