Swedish High Mountains have captured my heart years ago, and we want to offer you the same experience. This way, you can personally experience the mountains that one can only dream of in Finland.

The adventure begins on Sunday, April 9th, at 12:00 from Abisko in front of STF (Swedish Tourist Association). The route follows the Kungsleden trail to the Abiskojaure and Alesjaure mountain lodges. On the third day, we will take a trip to the nearby mountains from the Alesjaure mountain lodge. On the fourth and fifth hiking days, we will ski a slightly different route back to Abiskojaure and Abisko. We will return from Abisko on the afternoon of April 13th.

It should be noted that even though you can manage the trip with normal fitness, weather conditions may change rapidly in mountain conditions. In these situations, the importance of equipment is emphasized. A gear list will be provided to participants upon registration.

Vaikka talvi ja kesäkurssissa on hyvin paljon samaa, kesällä opettelussa on omat etunsa sekä haasteet. Keskimäärin kesäkurssit kestävät n. 2h pidempään kuin talvella ja ovat hieman tarkempia hyvistä olosuhteista. Kesäkurssien ehdoton hauskuus on niiden vauhdikkuus. Koska vedessä läiskyttely on paljon pehmeämpää kun jäällä meno voidaan tempoa hieman lisätä verrattuna talvikurssiin.
