The mountains of the Swedish Lappland are not only good for cross country skiing. Hosting Sweden’s highest peak (Kebnekaise, 2111m), this massif is more Alpine-like than one would think, with glaciers, couloirs, long and steep slopes, and sharp ridges.
We’ll start from Nallo, a very genuine mountain hut beautifully located in a wild and remote valley, surrounded by many peaks. A perfect place for ski touring. Then we’ll continue to Tarfala, at the bottom of the Kebnekaise glaciers. Finally we’ll reach the Kebnekaisefjällstation, the Swedish center for ski touring and alpinism.
During these five days, we’ll go across the massif from north to south. I propose to you the following program and day-by-day itinerary.
Starting from Nallo hut (reached the previous evening with snowmobile), we’ll go for the best snow in the neighborhood. Night at Nallo.
From Nallo to Tarfala hut, on the famous route named “Jojo leden”. (1300m up, 6hrs walking). Night at Tarfala.
Depending of the conditions of the moment and your wishes, the choice is big around Tarfala:
– Beautiful glacier runs: Isfallglaciären, Kebnetjakkaglaciären
– Lillietoppenrännan, a nice and long couloir
– Tarfalatjakka, a wide and gentle slope…
And of course much more!
Night at Kebnekaise Mountain Station.
Ascent of the Kebnekaise (south top, 2104m, Sweden’s highest peak), by the eastern route. Glacier, couloir with fixed ropes, a nice ridge, the route is splendid and varied. Indeed, the long 1500m climb is worth the effort: a breathtaking view on an ocean of mountains. The arctic at it’s best!
Night at Kebnekaise hut.
A last hike, the Tuolpagorni (1662m), a peak with an interesting surprise 950m, 4h. Last night at the Kebnekaisefjällstation, ride back with snowmobiles the following morning.
