Tour of 2018 – Day 28, August 23rd 2018

Camp at Stuor Kärpel Woke up already 5:30 and managed to go back to sleep until 7:00, had a few short and rather mellow rain showers during the night and early morning. After my first coffee the rain had stopped and I wiped off the tent. Just after 8am I began packing up my stuff…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 28, August 23rd 2018

Tour of 2018 – Day 27, August 22nd 2018

Camp at the eastern shore of Cunojaure What a joy to wake up without the sound of rain on the tent, it had been a few showers during the night, the last in the early morning hours, and none of them even close to the ones yesterday. I woke up already at 5:30, getting into…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 27, August 22nd 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

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

Camp at Rapa Ätno I woke up rather early around 6 am after just 9 hours in my sleeping bag, no real rain during the night and I slept fairly undisturbed.

Akka cabin This has been a real rest day for me, slept in until almost 8am and, after taking down the tent, spent most of the am inside the cabin. Taking care of equipment, chatting with other hikers, drinking coffee and tea, and just resting. I totally needed this! The boat left at 2 pm…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 15, August 10th 2018

Camp at Unna Allakas The rain had stopped just after midnight and the sky looked a lot more friendly when I got out and shaked most of the water off my tent at around 7 am. Ashleigh was already awake and we ended up chatting for a couple of hours having several cups of coffee…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 7, August 2nd 2018

Camp west of the crossing between Radujavri and Miesakjavri The day started very relaxed, all woke up rather early and we got going at 9:20 without any rush in the morning!

Camp across from the large boulders in the middle of Vistasvagge Great night at Vassajavri, woke up with morning sun and a light breeze and enjoyed a slow morning.

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
