This hiking trip takes you to Swedish Laponia (Laponia is the Latin name for Lapland). This wilderness is the largest unified natural landscape in Europe, i.e. an area that has not been modified by humans. In 1996, Lapland was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It comprises a total of four national parks and two nature reserves. One of Lapland's four national parks is Padjelanta, Sámi Badjelánnda, bordering Norway in the west.
Our hiking route goes here - among vast fell hills and larg lakes. The abundant fell meadows also hide rare plants. In the shelters of these wildernesses, the arctic fox, the tawny owl, the golden eagle live.
