A remote adventure for the comfortable skier
Discover Padjelanta National Park and visit the most remote area in Sweden. Together we travel from hut-hut enjoying the arctic spring during the days and sleep well in comfortable beds in the night. If we are lucky we may see moose, wolverine or ptarmigan, animals that all have found a way to survive the winter on the arctic tundra. Padjelanta, or the higher land as it is named in Sami, is where the reindeer calfs are born and in the summer the Sami settlement are full of life. During winter though, you can travel across Padjelanta National Park for days without seeing anyone.
Padjelanta national park is the largest national park in Sweden and part of Laponia World Heritage Site. The almost 2000 square kilometers consists of an vast and open landscape with round mountain peaks and great mountain lakes. We will start our tour in Kutjaure, just north of the border to Padjelanta and ski across the National park to the Tarra valley in the south. On our route, we’ll pass close to the most remote point in Sweden where you are as far away as possible from any roads.
