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

Camp at Gautelishytta Another day I woke up early and snuck into the cabin at 7 am when I had heard that the only other guest also was up already.

Tour of 2018 – Day 25, August 20th 2018

Camp at the Hukejaure cabin The day started like yesterday ended, rain and wind. During most of the night, the rough wind shook the tent and there were several long and heavy rain showers, making it hard to sleep well. So grateful for the separate gear shed that let me keep all the wet stuff…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 25, August 20th 2018

Camp just north of Viddjajavri Wow, I’m so grateful to be dry and warm, this day was really rough weather wise.

Camp at Saltoluokta Being more than half a day ahead of schedule due to the weather, I had decided on beforehand to take one day completely off here in Saltoluokta.

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 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.
