We plan to travel by human power North through Sarek National Park,summiting and skiing all twelve 2000 meter peaks in Sweden.
In April 2021 two professional big mountain skiers and two IFMGA guides will head above the Arctic Circle in hopes of summiting and skiing all twelve 2000 meter peaks in Sweden.
Up until 2016, it was believed that only 11 peaks over 2000 meters existed in Sweden. Upon remeasurement, it was discovered that there are actually 12, the newest addition to the list being Sielmatjåkka just making the mark at 2004 meters.
We plan to travel by human power North through Sarek National Park, where 6 of Sweden’s 2000 meter peaks lie. Sarek National Park is part of the World Heritage Site, Laponia for natural and cultural reasons. As a result, it is the worlds largest unmodified nature area still cultured by natives, the Sami people. It is also the oldest National Park in all of Europe.
After passing through Sarek we will cross through Stora Sjöfallets National Park on our way to the next 6 peaks over 2000 meters. North of Stora Sjöfallet we will find both the tallest peaks in Sweden, the ever-changing Kebnekaise massif and the newest addition to the 2000 + meter roster, Sielmatjåkka.
This journey will take us over 330+ kilometres of some of the most beautiful, rugged and untouched terrain in all of Europe. Along our journey, we will be on the lookout for some of the best, and perhaps least known skiing the Scandinavian mountains have to offer.
