The six stages each have their own distinctive feature. The views stretch for miles, punctuated by dramatic valleys and surrounded by steep slopes and high peaks. When you walk through the dramatic Syterpasset, you have peaks on both sides of you that are 1,700 metres above sea level. Make your way across Lake Tärnasjö over the long bridges that join up its small islets.
STF has five mountain cabins along this section of the Kungsleden trail. Remember that this is a reindeer herding area – please treat it with respect and consideration.
