To all the wonderful fellow travellers and locals I met on this walk, I look forward to hosting you in Australia one day;)
|The glacially carved Norra Storfjället.|
|Flying into Hemavan. There appears to be a lot of trees and lakes in Sweden.|
|Alright, I'm off then!|
|Climbing away from Hemavan it didn't take long for me to be impressed with the scenery.|
|I was now contouring around to drop into the valley that was opening up ahead of me.|
|Viterskals STF stuga.|
According to my GPS I walked 14.2 kilometres and climbed 539 metres on my first day on the Kungsleden. With the track fairly well defined and well graded I’d call today’s walk a medium grade walk I guess. There were numerous places to access water or camp and also the Viterskals stuga if you wanted to stay in a hut. I used the topo maps on my GPS as well as Ciccerone’s Trekking the Kungsleden book today.
