Finally I managed to complete the gallery of this year’s visit in Sarek. Click the image below to explore it.
Sarek national park is located in the Swedish part of Lapland to the north of the Arctic Circle. Although (or should I say because?) I had visited the area already last year I returned this year to walk a different route and spend again two weeks in one of the most remote areas of Europe. With this article I want to give you some background information on my hike, my motivation and practical aspects.
In late summer I returned to Sarek – the largest high mountain area in northern Sweden. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to. As the last time, I hiked two weeks covering approximately 200 km (see also last year’s post or gallery). Although hiking in the same area, the overlap with last year’s hike was less than 10 km. In the following some preview images, more information and of course pictures will follow.
Last month I have been re-visiting Scotland (my previous visit was in 2011). On a variety of different hikes in the western highlands – including a four-day hike in the wilderness area north of Kinlochewe – I captured new impressions of the harsh Scottish landscapes. I added the new pictures to my existing Western Scotland gallery. Below some samples.
