Swedish Lapland summer hike

Top of Laponia (7 days / 6 nights)

This unique and exclusive summer hike brings you right in the hart of the world heritage site Laponia in Swedish Lapland. Together with a certified mountain guide, you spend 7 days in unique nature and experience Sámi culture.

Laponia Swedish Lapland

Right in the heart of the world heritage of Laponia the Sámi village Staloluokta is located. This is an optimal place to start our hiking from. During the summer months there is full of life and people in Staloluokta as the members of the Sámi village spend three months here where the reindeers are on the mountain slopes.

Bright summer nights

The bright nights of the summer in Swedish Lapland embrace us and give us a feeling of the Arctic bright nights. In the beginning of July time is for marking the small reindeer calves, a really great show going on during the night and the light hours. Everyone, old and young from the village participate, it is a heritage. Around the fireplaces the stories are told together with coffee and reindeer meat. If we are lucky we might be a part of all this Sámi culture.

Sarek National park

On the border to Europe’s last wilderness area Sarek the views are wonderful and we hike in almost untouched landscape. On the west and south side you spot the big massif of Sulitelma. Right in front the soft and green slopes that is significant for this area surrounding the big lakes Vastenjaure and Virihaure.

Staddajákk and Sárjásjaure is very beautiful places close to the Norwegian border. We spend a night in the small cabin known as consul Persson cabin, located just on the edge to the waterfall. The very strange shape of the summit of mountain Jiegnajaffo is a challenge to climb, and also a tour up to the high altitude plateau Duoddar. This all exclusive and best adventure will forever remains in your mind.
