After an unusually could spring, the snow and ice melted months later than expected in summer 2016, coursing huge amounts of melting water. Streams and rivers all over northern Lapland owerfloded the landscapes during in July and August. Lack of grass for the reindeer in mid summer corsing severe hunger and under nutrition of there calfs was another outcome of the changing weather.
On a 9 days hike along the famous Kungsledan from Abisko til Kiruna, including a climb to the summit Kebnikaise, the highest point in Sweden we challenged our self in many ways and came real close to nature. Heavy bags, wet feet and some days bitterly could, this trip was not exactly a relaxing holiday walk but on the other hand it was wonderful and most really fascinating hike.
