Sarek National Park is a remote place, beyond the polar circle, that belongs to Swedish Lapland.
A natural paradise, little touched by the hand of man, although in their lands the Sami have lived or traveled more or less permanently for centuries.
Sarek is not only a beautiful alpine landscape, but also a Sami cultural treasure worth discovering. Sarek is known to be a demanding and challenging place for people entering its territory due to its few marked roads, and any other infrastructure such as bridges or shelters (guarded or unguarded).
What? Just thinking about it your heart starts to pound and you feel an irrepressible desire to feel that wind on your face, right?
That’s it. Traveling to the heart of Sarek is traveling towards a sense of freedom that you may not have felt before in your life. Be careful because it hooks, when you come back you will no longer be the same or the same. Your priorities may change.
Do you dare to come? You don’t have to do it alone. Let us guide you. We will teach you its secrets, we will cross its heart from end to end, we will guide your steps and we will be by your side when you need us: at river crossings, on snow bridges, when you feel overwhelmed by the weight of the landscape or loneliness. And we will leave you space, when you need to grow or just be.
Traveling to Sarek is not complicated. Despite being remote, it has several well-connected accesses. Another reason why I love the place is because of the possibility of always traveling by public transport. You do not need to rent private vehicles and even the plane is expendable, to some extent. The plane may be necessary to get to the country’s capital Stockholm, for example. From the same airport it is possible to take the train to travel on a night train to Gällivare (saving you a second plane to Lulea for example, and a hotel night). From the same train station in Gällivare the bus leaves for different entrances to the park. Everything connected, everything in sync. It’s great!
If you want to know more about the park, do not stop reading our trip.
Here are some photos so you know what awaits you, although the photos never do justice!
The adventures that we lived there, we do not tell you. We prefer that you experience them by your own. We are going from August 25 to September 5, are you coming?
