Tour of 2018 – Day 26, August 21st 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. Picking a break between the rain showers to wipe my tent and bring it inside to dry ensured that I could pack everything the way…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 26, August 21st 2018

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. Started out being quite nice, I had to wipe the tent twice in the morning due to a short rain shower, yet then I could start the hike just shy of 9:30 wearing my…Read more Tour of 2018 – Day 24, August 19th 2018

Camp on the eastern slope of Gisuris Back off the grid again! After getting an interview for the cabin host series, I left Akka cabin at 10 am and headed down the Padjelanta trail towards Kisuris.

Camp at Ritsem Woke up rather early around 6 am, felt rested and ready to start the day.

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

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

 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

10:20 Kebnekaise station Wow, what a breakfast!!! Waking up in time to be there at 06:00 when they opened was a non issue, I frankly didn't sleep very well or much at all. There was a heavy rain falling most of the night, the noice of drops falling on the tarp keeping me from getting…Read more Day 24 – August 20th 2017
