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

Tour of 2018 – Day 18, August 13th 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.

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

10:45 Camp 300m east of Tjågnårisjågåsj on the mountain side above the trail Another day starting with rain, it began pouring down again sometimes during the night and continues throughout the morning with short breaks in between the showers.

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
