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…
