Several years ago I went on my first hike in Lapland, in Sarek national park. Since then I have come back to Swedish and Norwegian Lapland many times. While I revisit places, usually there are also some new vistas on my itinerary. Last autumn I visited the Sarek area for the fourth time.
I am currently writing a report about my hike, starting with some general information and my first five hiking days. If you are interested, continue reading here.
The existing image gallery about Sarek in Swedish Lapland is going to be extended as well. In addition, I am planning a travel report. However -- as past experience tells me -- this will take quite a while to complete.
Only now I am finally working through the images I took during a 2-week backpacking trip in Sarek (Swedish Lapland) mid September. In particular, I re-visited the summit of Skierffe for the third time. This location offers magnificent views across the Laitaure Delta.
The following images are abstract views of this maze of colorful streams, swamps and forests in their fall colors seen from high above. The Rapa River deposits huge amounts of glacial sediments into the Laitaure lake which results in this unique landscape.
This summer we’ve been hiking for two weeks in Norway’s Saltfjellet-Svartisen National Park and its surroundings.
The area is roughly located at the polar circle’s latitude. It consists of a western section which features Svartisen glacier -- Norway’s second largest glacier and an eastern part -- Saltfjellet. Directly adjacent to it is the small Láhko National Park, founded in 2012. It is interesting in particular for its Karst formations.
