I finally got around to editing and posting my thru-hike of Padjelantaleden 2021

Now I can concentrate on my CDT 2022 Thru-hike, which is just around the corner (April 16th. 2022) 😉

Padjelantaleden (Padjelanta Trail 2021) is a hiking trail in Lappland, in northern Sweden.

It is about 140 km long and leads from Kvikkjokk northwards through Padjelanta National Park (in the Laponia park system) to Ritsem.

We chose to hike it from north to south, for no reason because it is the same “hassle” to get to either starting / end point on the trail, so choose what ever makes sense to you. Only positive doing it the way we did, is that you end the trip at KvikkJokk fjällstation, which has nice food etc. up north in Ritsem its pretty boring so it might not be a very interesting end to an amazing hike 🙂

You can do the hike in about 9–10 days (Depending on your speed, but it can definitely be done much quicker). Not having much elevation gain (at maximum 300 m per day), it is suitable as a beginner’s trekking tour, provided one has experience with outdoor camping, hiking and staying in remote areas.

And as always I would really appreciate if you went to my Youtube channel and subscribed 🙂 for some reason I am stuck at around 660 subscribers. It could be cool to hit 1000 subscribers during my Continental Divide Trail thru-hike!
