Talk to a guide :

Ski touring in Northern Sweden.  The Haute Route of Kebnekaise.

Dates
March / April 2018, weekly.

Level C-D, 3-4

The mountains of the swedish Lappland are not good only for cross country skiing.. Hosting Sweden’s highest top (Kebnekaise, 2111m), this massive is more Alpine-like than one would think, with glaciers, couloirs, long and steep slopes, and sharp ridges.

We’ll start from Nallo, a very genuine mountain hut beautifully located in a wild and remote valley, surrounded by many peaks. A perfect place for ski touring. Then we’ll continue to Tarfala, at the bottom of the Kebnekaise glaciers, and we’ll reach finally the Kebnekaisefjällstation, swedish center for ski touring and alpinism.

During these five days, we’ll go across the massive from north to south.

Program

day 1 : Starting from Kiruna, a 1h drive will take us to Nikkaluokta where we will load our gear and skis on a snowmobile that will drive us to our first hut, Nallo. Once installed in the cabin, we’ll go for a first ski tour !

day 2 : Starting from Nallo hut we’ll go for the best snow in the neighborhood. Many peaks in the area are fantastic for ski touring, the landscape is breathtaking ! Night at Nallo .
day 3 : From Nallo to Tarfala hut, on the famous route named “Jojo leden” . (1300m up, 6hrs walking). Night at Tarfala.
day 4 : Depending of the conditions of the moment and your wishes, the choice is big around Tarfala.
-Beautiful glacier runs : Isfallglaciären, Kebnetjakkaglaciären
-Lillietoppenrännan, a nice and long couloir
-Tarfalatjakka, a wide and gentle slope…
And much more !
Night at Kebnekaise Mountain Station.
day 5: Ascent of the Kebnekaise (south top, 2104m, Sweden’s highest peak), by the eastern route. Glacier, couloir with fixed ropes, a nice ridge, the route is splendid and varied. The long 1500m climb is worth the effort : a breathtaking view on an ocean of mountains. The arctic at it’s best !
Night at Kebnekaise hut.
