It is late in the year, the leaves are falling from the trees and soon winter is arriving. About time to work on a short video about my Lapland trip last winter. With snowshoes I explored the Swedish mountainscape in 10 days. So, let’s look forward to the cold and hopefully we’ll get some snow :-)!
Here the video, best watched in fullscreen and HD:
By the way: I finally managed to also add some of the new images to the already existing gallery.
Recently I posted a comparison of photos taken at the same locations during different seasons. Sometimes, even comparing photos of the same scene taken during different times of day may show interesting changes.
The following photos were taken during my hike in Sarek (Swedish Lapland) last year – only one night apart.
In March I was on my first winter trip in the mountains of Swedish Lapland. I had done several long hikes in the area in the short nordic summer and wanted to see what it was like in winter. It was a great experience and everything looked so different. I got to some locations I had also visited in summer some years ago. Thus, I want to share some photos taken at roughly the same locations to give you an impression.
After my hike on the Kepler Track, I had scheduled a hike on Routeburn Track, another Great Walk. As usual, pre-booked accommodation is required, preventing spontaneous trips or adaptation to the weather conditions. My recommendation, as mentioned before, is opting for camping: you’re more flexible, campsites are less crowded than huts and a lot cheaper.
