Post Hike – Updated Route – Riksgränsen to Abisko via Vistas September 2019

I started at Riksgränsen in the north on September 6th, close to the Norwegian border. Then I hiked south until I crossed over to Vistas in the east. Back-tracking to Kungsleden, I then walked north to Abisko finishing on September 12.

The trip took me 7 days and 6 nights and total length was 118 km. I was supposed to get off the train at Katterjåkk Turiststation of which I had arranged with the conductor when I boarded the train in Stockholm. However, they did not stop and the train continued to Riksgränsen where I started my hike, back-tracking to Katterjåkk.

Please refer my upcoming posts to find out why I changed my original route under-ways 😀.
