My travels around the world

Northern Sweden

Padjelanta Hiking Tour 2006

I love the very north of Sweden. This is the mountain area called "Fjällen" and home to some of Swedens most amazing National Parks (Abisko, Padjelanta, Sarek and Stora Sjöfallet). Endless areas of wilderness, perfect for making multi-day hikes.

This is a long time dream coming true, visiting this amazing national park and hiking almost 2 weeks in this fantastic place!
