/ hiking in northern Sweden
Below the tree line, there will be plenty of mosquitos and black flies all through summer, above the tree line almost none, except for very calm evenings.
Sarek looks like an absolutely magnificent place.
Was first alerted to it via the photography of Magnus Limdbom.
to get to kvikkjock was a flight to stockholm then 14 hours on train north, then a few hours on a bus...but all very do'able
you've got to be up for walking through cold rivers, plus a distinct lack of paths...but if you are you will love it
