Eight and a half days of sunshine out of nine, permanent daylight and the lovely mountain huts all for us. This June visit to the Kebnekaise region of northern Sweden was so good it will be hard not to compare should we return.
The skiing was in magical light and on sparkling diamond dust snow. Two experiences stand out; 1904m Lillietoppen and Rick’s birthday midnight sun ski complete with whisky, Dundee cake and candle. It was also pretty cool skiing to the end of the last ribbon of spring snow on the final day. No snow left, no problem, I call the heli company and was surprised at how quickly the machine arrived. The pilot had stopped on the way in at a nearby mountain lake to fish for trout.
