Laponia ski tour
- Duration: 7 Days (approx.)
- Location: Jokkmokk, Norrbottens län
- Product code: SkiLaponia
Arctic spring in the UNESCO world heritage site Laponia
Experience the arctic spring, with warmer days and colder nights that keep the snow from melting. We ski with light backpacks from hut to hut and discover the world heritage around the majestic Ahkka Mountain. From the huts we do daytrips, depending on the group we may climb a smaller peak or relax in a sunny wind protected snow couch. In April, the days are long with only a few hours of darkness but if you stay awake you could get awarded with a northern light show crossing the sky.
Together we travel where the jagged peaks of Sarek national park meet the high plains of Padjelanta. During centuries, the Sami People have lived and worked in the area and followed the reindeers during their migration from summer to winter grassing area. Since 1996 it is protected by UNESCO as a part of Laponia World heritage for its unique combination of nature and culture.
