Saltoluokta and Stora Sjöfallet are both genuine and beautiful places. Actually the oldest places situated along the embryo of the famous Kings Trail. From the genuine mountain station at Saltoluokta we go by boat upstreams to Stora Sjöfallet to visit the rest part of once Europe’s biggest waterfall and he old cabin. With helicopter we easy and fast enter the mountains.
By the mountain plateaus close to Sarek we begin our hike along the border towards the national parks, Stora Sjöfallet and Sarek’s mythical wilderness. After a few hours hiking we reach Slugga plateau and the nice small mountain lakes where we find a suitable place to camp and put up our tents. A real wilderness dinner is waiting for you together with the silence.
The symmetrical Slugga mountain is our goal for the next day. From here we have a superior view in every direction and see right into Sarek’s heart. In east Pietsaure the Sami family Kuoljok lives. Hiking from Slugga down to Pietsaure west side where Apmut Kuoljok meets up with his boat for taking us to the Sami camp. They will host us in their cabins over the night.
You arrive with boat in the afternoon at Saltoluokta mountain station. The guide meets up for check-in and dinner together where we go through the program and the equipment.
After breakfast we go by boat up to the old Sjöfallscabin from 1890 and the part of the lake what used to be the biggest waterfall in Europe. Stories about the area and the waterplant construction are told. In the afternoon the helicoter takes us up to the mountain plateaus where we hike to a nice place for our camp.
Breakfast on the mountain at the camp, before we climb the summit of Slugga. In the afternoon we hike down towards the west end of Pietsaure where Apmut Kuoljok gives a ride in the boat back to the Sami camp where we spend the night.
