Sarek in Swedish Lapland

Sarek National Park – a national treasure of Sweden.

Sarek National Park is in the province of Norrbotten in the far north of the country. It is home to 100 glaciers six of Sweden’s 13 highest peaks.

The park is 2000 square kilometres of majestic and untouched wilderness and its remoteness is matched only by the breathtaking beauty of its peaks, valleys and fast-running mountain rivers.

Kungsleden skirts the park to the east and you can hike from Kvikkjokk in the south along the Tarra Valley, or from Saltoluokta, which is a mountain station with a highly recommended restaurant. From Ritsem, which lies north of Akkajaure, you can take the boat to the north of Sarek.

Sarek National Park is wilderness and you must have map-reading skills, a good knowledge of this type of terrain and all the equipment you need for your entire stay.
