Located in Jökulsárgljúfur canyon a few kilometers downstream of Dettifoss this is my favorite waterfall in Iceland. This view can only be achieved by hiking down into the canyon. The height of Hafragilsfoss is 27 m.

The lake Kaska Kaitumjaure seen from the cliff edge of Čihkkumbákti. The view was absolutely stunning. It is difficult to convey the dimensions in a photograph. I set up my tent nearby in the early afternoon and watched the changing weather during the remainder of the day. With this photo I was lucky as the sun peeked through the clouds for a brief moment in time.

Sky on Fire
For my strenuous climb in the dark of the early morning I was rewarded with beautiful colors.
Contradicting weather conditions on the summit of Bårddetjåhkkå (2005 m). The prominent peak to the left is Sáitaristjåhkkå (1908 m). In the background the Luohttoláhko plateau.
Large vs. Small
Large dunes are surrounded by smaller ones that are all aligned with the main direction of the wind.
It took me a lot of tries until I was able to capture this wave breaking on a large piece of ice.
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.
A detailed description of our trip you can find in the travel report. Or you can watch 6 minutes of video summarizing our trip:
