Touring Over the Arctic Hills in Abisko (Sweden)

The large arctic hills of Sweden stole my heart already years ago, and we would like to offer you a similar experience. You can also experience hills that can only be dreamt of in Finland.

The adventure starts on Sunday 31.03. at 07.00 in Raahe and people participating the joint transportation will be picked up during the route.  We will arrive in Abisko STF (Svenska Turistföreningen) in the evening on 31.03.2019. We will head out into the wilderness the next day on 01.04.2019. The route follows the  Kungsled to the Abisko and Ales Lake station. On the third day, we will take a trip to the nearby arctic hills from the Alesjaure station. On the fourth and fifth day, we will take a slightly different route skiing back to Abiskojaure and Abisko. The journey back to Finland starts on Saturday 06.04.2019.

It is good to note, however, that even though you can take this ski tour as a normally fit person, the weather conditions can change in the mountains very rapidly. Having proper equipment is thus very important. A list of required equipment will be sent when you are booking for the tour.
