Abisko 2021

On 7 - 13 September 2021 we were on a Lapland trip with day hikes, mainly in Abisko National Park.

 

After the night train up, we stayed 3 nights at STF's tourist station in Abisko.

Abiskoeatnu (Abiskojåkka) forms a canyon near the station.

Dag Hammarsköld, who often stayed here, has given names to several meditation sites along the Kungsleden.

Ended the trip with a visit to Kiruna and Gällivare

The fine church in Kiruna. It will soon be moved completely to a new location a few kilometers away.
