Summer and hot, the workout this week has been hard. At the fighting gym the heat has been lamentable. But the planned workouts have been done. 30 days challenge with 50 push-ups/day is on going, and the heat will not be a stop…I also have start to do some mountainbiking as a completion an variation of the workout. So meet my new training partner..
This weeks suggestion of short mountain trips will be quite easier as I promised. First out will be the trail to ”Vindarnas tempel”. This one starts from Storlien. The lengt is 6,8km. You park the car close to ”Le Ski” at Storlien. Follow the sign towards ”Blomsterstigen” at the path grounds our suggestion here is to take the left path. With this choise you will have exellent views over Norways Mountain environment. The winsshelter is build out of stone, and it will protect from the wind from all directions. The panorama over Ann sjon, Storsnasen, Getryggen is magnicificent. From here you turn away southworth towards the stubborn 200m ahead. Be sure you turn left after about 1km, and follow the blue marking. You will pass another windshelter.
My next suggestion will be a pearl. At the winter this place a a good choice for ice climbing, so why dont visit in teh summer. Fettjeåfallet close to Klovsjo. With o adrop of 70m it is fantastic. The length of this hike is 4km. You start at the parking spot 5km from Klovsjo ski area. Follow the Fettjån toward the waterfall. And my suggestion is that you hike to the topp of the fall, here you will have a view worth the effort. Worth to know is that the trail has been renovate of sherpas from Nepal, so now there are nice steps of stone to walk on…
And my third and last one. Here we start from Storulvan. We will now turn our eyes towards Getryggen. The lengt of this one is 8,2km. You follow the trail toward the peak of Getryggen. With the 1380m over the sea, this one is a bit challenging. But the view make it worth is all days in the week. When you reach the firts peka the view will help you to find the other two. Between the the first and second peak, there is a plateu. Turn to right slowly and carful, here you will have a perfect view over Noder and sonner tvaraklomp and Storsnasen. Continue to the third peak and then the same way back.
And now over to the question: what is the perfect backpack. For me I need to have one that can be used for skiing, ice climbing, hiking etc. So I have figured out that 35-40L will be a good size. For a longer activity I will ahve to choose a bigger one. But with the size of maximum 40L I will not bring to much stuff, which might be a risk otherwise. Yoy really have to prioritize:-). I will also have a bakcpack with a signal colour, and I also want to have one zipper going over the whole pack so I easy can get stuff when I needed them. And of course it should fit good as well. So I found one backpack that can live up to this expectation. But observe, this is for my needs.
It will be a lot of hikers in the Swedish Mountains this year. This means it will be hard to get a bed at the cabins and the mountain stations. So from today I will give some suggestion of easy alternative solution if you cant book a bed.
My first suggestion for today will be Kolåsen mountain station, the gate to Skacker-mountains. From here you can take nice tours towards Sockertoppen, among other hikes. My second suggestion will be to stay at Enaforsholm and take a transport towards Rundhogen. From here you hike to Blahammaren Mountain station. Make sure to book the dinner at 1800, eat and hike back. You can also use Wanseths cab service for the transportation. The third and last suggestion for this week will be; Helgs mountain station. Book acommendation in Ljungdalen or at Funasdalen(the ski in and out is very nice and value. Then make sure to book the dinner at Helags Mountain station, and hike back in the evening. You will make it in a day if you are in good shape. 3-5 hours one way… The suggestion this weeks is for skilled hikers. Next week will be for more of beginners…
And at the end some new gear, I Think it is interesting with new innovative solutions. Here comes one if you are camping for a longer time and need to wash. Here you got a portable wash machine..
So the Life continues the Corona despite. This saturday I Went to Skuleberget for some Via Ferrata guiding. The travel trough Sweden was fabulous, the landscape is something special this time of the year. At Docksta and Skuleberget the weather still was perfect, and it become a super session. A happy guide and happy participants…New habbits and new trail to hike is something postive in the tracks out of Corona. So why dont try a new hiking trail, or a new adventure in the near? It is your own imagnination that will be the limitation for you. So get out a suprice yourself with a new adventure…
In May 2010 I started this blog, and today I will write post number 500. In the beginning it was much about workout and stuff like that, but I Think it has been developed during the year. The advent calendar is one of the most appraised parts. This week I Went to Skuleberget for the seasons first Via Ferrata, and as Always Skule delivers. I will Always be satisfied there. This week also the Swedish Tourist Assosiation prenaunced that the cabins and mountain stations will be open during the summer despite the Corona virus. So now it is high time for planning the hikes and adventures for the summer. Why dont visit Skäckerfjällen?
If you have some time I will recommend this documantary. Here you will have a view of the schuss, and the Åre mountaain. 3 minutes and 2 sek in the film you will have a perfect view over Getryggen, Norder och sönner tväråklump and Storsnasen…enjoy:-)
