Fire & Ice 2017 Day 5: Salka-Kebnekaise

This will be an exciting day as we will see Kebnekaise (2099 m.), Sweden’s highest peak, for the first time. We will be trying to spot the route up that we will use when climbing the peak. Today we ski from Salka mountain hut to Kebnekaise Mountain Station.

Did You Know?

We might think of skiing as something we do for fun on weekends, many Swedes see it as another mode of locomotion. Some will ski to train stations or bus stops; public transit comes equipped with storage space for skis. If someone lives close enough, they might even ski directly to the office.
