There is much more to see in the mountains around Abisko. 

Like people




Mountan bikes


Sami huts



Alpine flowers



Lichens




Stone



And such!

A couple days of trekking is a wounderful relief from the garden chores. 

A bit noisy, but so soothing!

It’s time to leave Abisko Lodge. I didn’t see any midnight sun this time – everything was green and grey and cold and wet. But it was wonderful to get close to wilderness and wander and get tired and wet and then return to the warmth of the lodge fire and meet a bunch of fellow wanderers. It’s my type of pilgrimage. 

I should mention, they even have an alpine vegetable garden for the restaurant, and the food was excellent. 

And my own cooking too.

In case anyone wants to try this delicacy:

My favorite vegetarian sausges, on Finnish ryebread covered with dark tahini and cheese. I only wish I had had som Kimchi to top it off. 

Oh, and a wad of paper towel and clear clean mountain water. 

Another day of hiking – hardly any rain but no sun either. Today I went halfway to Kårsavagge cabin. Wet feet but otherwise –

Exhilarating!






Across the bridge, then back to the fire at the Abisko lodge. 

A day later. After a stressed out day of weeding and putting the garden in order and then an all night train trip, I’m in the mountains of northern Sweden for my annual hiking vacation. I’m at Abisko mountain lodge this year, hiking in the rain and cold.





I’m already back at the lodge drinking coffee beside the open fire warming up and drying off. 


Now for a sauna to warm my bones and a reindeer meat dinner. 

Like a phantom, Låktatjåkka Lodge imerges out of the fog after the days hike and climb.
