    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 six days, we’ll go across the massif from north to south. I propose to you the following program and day-by-day itinerary.

    Day 1
    Starting from Nallo hut (reached the previous evening with snowmobile), we’ll go for the best snow in the neighborhood. Night at Nallo.

    Day 2
    From Nallo to Tarfala hut, on the famous route named “Jojo leden”. (1300m up, 6hrs walking). Night at Tarfala.

    Day 3
    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.

    Day 4
    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.

    Day 5
    Extra day in case of bad weather.

    Day 6
    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.

    Are you interested in this ski touring trip? Then please get in touch with me! You can either join a group or set up your own. It will be me pleasure to guide your there and show you my secret spots in this massif that I know very well.

    Other details


    Nallo and Tarfalla huts are basic, but comfortable, clean and warm. You cannot buy any food there. So small in this huge wilderness around, the feeling here is very special and hard to forget...

    Nallo hut: Situated in the middle of the wide Stuor RÃitavagge Valley, STF Nallo has always appealed to those searching for challenges and demanding climbing. The area is a paradise for telemark skiers because of the winters abundant with new snow in the area.

    Tarfala hut: The mountain hut is located in Tarfalavagge, one of the most beautiful valleys in the Kebnekaise massif. Tarfala is full of striking contrasts with glacial ice, the blue-green Lake Tarfalajaure and barren green vegetation.

    Kebnekaise resort is a cluster of small chalets, near hotel standard. The rooms we will be staying in are bedded for four persons. The resort has a fantastic restaurant and a saloon with sofas and open fireplace. There are also showers, saunas and a sports shop where equipment can be rented
