Kungsleden Day 8

Our destination for today is Tjäkta. We are starting quite early at about 9:30 am. Christian is trying to slide down the mountain with the sled. He ends up with a face full of snow. :D A swarm of ptarmigans flow away they probably made fun of it.

The weather and landscape are great. The route is quite hilly but we are getting progress fast. Except for the last 2 km they are really steep and a real challenge for all of us with all the luggage. We are close to the highest point of our journey and in addition to that, we are now running in the shadows. IT’S so freaking cold!!! At least that way we are not losing much time in spending too long breaks.

In Tjäkta again we are getting a warm welcome from the hosts. The capacities here are much lower than in Alesjaure. (there are only an estimated 15 beds) Everything is a bit quieter … and – for me meanwhile of enormous importance – the toilet is very close!
