Section 2 │ Storlien – Kallsedet 110 km

Setting off for section two was a strange feeling. It really felt like if that was the point where the hike started. The first part was just a regular hike in the mountains, but now I continued into unknown grounds, starting the thru hike, entering a world I had longed to explore. Longing for the days on trail to become my daily life.

Gröna bandet – short summary

A few years ago, the so called Green Ribbon (Swedish: Fjällfararnas Gröna Band) hike was created, which essentially means hiking the whole Swedish mountain range. 54 people have finished it since 2011 and we were ~30 starters this year. The winter equivalent is called white ribbon (Swedish: Fjällfararnas Vita Band), but that is a whole different story…
