An excellent and easy stage awaits you there – though with some tough climbs. The walk starts with a long ascent, first in mountain birch forest and then on barren mountain moorland. After 5 kilometres, there is a gully that may provide some shelter. Go upstream from the bridge over the brook. After that, the slope flattens out and the trail goes over extensive areas of heathland.
At the treeline, 1.5 kilometres above the STF Vakkotavare Mountain Cabin, there is an excellent view should you decide to stop or camp there. After that, the trail winds and twists between the mountain birches down to STF Vakkotavare and the main road between Ritsem and Gällivare.
