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.

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
