Preparation and packing

This trip demands a lot of both you and your equipment. You will receive help and advice on what potentially needs to be bought, rented or borrowed through FaceTime, mail and cellphone – contact me with what you lack and we will take a look at it. Exercise with a 20-25 kg backpack at home well in advance for a good experience. Before departure, we ensure everything is controlled and optimised so that you get a good and safe experience. 

Gear needed

A detailed equipment list for you to consider will be sent to you upon contact. This equipment list is meant to help you compile your personal gear. Most items are required. Please consider each item carefully and be sure you understand the function of each piece of equipment before you substitute or delete items. Don’t cut corners on the quality of your gear.

During the adventure, we live two and two in tents. You need to carry your own equipment and food as well as parts of the shared equipment.

Adventure itinerary

Day 1 – We meet in Nikkaluokta and have breakfast together. We talk a bit about the day and make the final adjustments to our backpacks before heading out on the trail. Today we will walk past Enoks; a nice place by the lake. Here you can enjoy a Swedish fika and if you are lucky also eat a reindeer burger in LapDånalds. I often stay here for a while before moving on. Before we reach Kebnekaise mountain station we pitch our tents and cook our food. We talk about the day and hope for magnificent views.

Day 2 – We wake up in our tents and hope for good weather. We fix our breakfast and whenl ready we pack our camp and walk to the mountain station nearby. Here we will stop for a while and check out the station. Maybe you want to visit the old part, buy something in the store or just have a coffee. We stay for a hour and a half before going further. The suspension bridge, the dance floor, the mountains. Here are large areas to check out. We walk in between the mountains, follow the water and pass the lakes. After crossing a hill, we suddenly see a whole new valley. We see the Singi cabins. Between the last lake and Singi we will search for a good place to camp for the night.
