Padjelanta winter experience
- Duration: 9 Days (approx.)
- Location: Ritsem, Norrbottens län
- Product code: SkiPadje
Crossing the higher land on skis
Discover the vast scenery of Padjelanta national park with the great lakes and the high peaks in the horizon. Without any winter trails to follow we choose our own way through the sometimes barren landscape. Padjelanta is the area where the reindeer calfs are born and in the summer the huts in the Sami settlement are full of life. In the winter though, you can ski for days without meeting anyone. If we are lucky we might see moose, wolverine and ptarmigan that all find a way to survive the winter on the arctic tundra.
Padjelanta national park is the largest national park in Sweden and part of the world heritage of Laponia. The almost 2000 square kilometers is positioned right west of Sarek national park and together Sarek and Padjelanta protect an impressive landscape and culture. On our planned route, we’ll pass close to the most remote point in Sweden, as far as possible from any roads.
This tour is for you who…
…want to experience the pure winter landscape of Padjelanta but still have the comfort of staying in heated huts during the night. You’ll need to be a fairly strong skier, be able to carry a backpack of about 10-15 kg and take turns dragging a sledge with common food and equipment. The program includes some longer days with distances over 20 km off-trail.
