Explore Sarek National park, 10 days tour
With huskies we will cover nearly 300 kilometres in perhaps one of Sweden’s most mythical areas, varied with high mountains, deep valleys, old forests and winding rivers. Our journey goes from Saltoluokta, through Sarek National Park, past Sweden’s most inaccessible point and along the Padjelanta trail to Kvikkjokk. From the little mountain village we head north, along the well known King’s trail and go back to Saltoluokta Mountain Station. The sunset’s, the taste of fresh made reindeer stew, the companionship with the dogs and the feeling of lying in a warm sleeping bag while the snowstorm is roaring outside the tent are memories you never want to be without!
Day 1 Arrival to Saltoluokta Mountain Station.
We meet and give you information about the program for the following days. Together we have a nice dinner and check the equipment. (D)
Day 2 Rissajaure, on the border to the tundra.
After breakfast we will meet the dogs, all Siberian Huskies and with different personalities. We give you instructions how to use the equipment. With help from the guide we harness the dogs, load the sleds and make everything ready for departure. We set off for the bare mountain and the tundra. The first night we will
stay in tents, so we rise the camp, prepare dinner and feed the dogs. (B, L & D)
Day 3-5 Through Sarek National Park.
We travel through Sarek National Park to the southwest. We go down to the upper end of Rapavalley, Sarvesvagge or Alkavagge towards Padjelanta. The weather and snow conditions will decide our exact route these days. Since there are no accessible cabins in Sarek we have to rely on our tents, which will make us more free and independent in our choices. (B, L & D)
Day 6-8 Tarradalen
We go down through the upper Tarravalley by the Darreluopal cabins. From here we will follow the Padjelanta trail down through the Tarravalley to Kvikkjokk, a small mountain village by the end of the road. From Kvikkjokk we head north along the King’s Trail back to Saltoluokta. In these days we will travel along marked trails with the possibility to spend the nights in nice cabins. (B, L & D)
Day 9 Back to Saltoluokta Mountain Station.
From the Sitojaure cabins we travel up over the bare mountain back to Saltoluokta. During this your last day with the dogs you will be amazed about your progress as a musher. Arrival to Saltoluokta Mountain Station. Here we will enjoy a hot sauna, warm showers and a three course dinner in the restaurant. (B, L & D)
