    [RR] Swedish mountains

    I combined a family trip with an outing in the Swedish mountains. The entire writeup is in my blog, but a few pictures are found below:





























    The Salsa Mukluk really is an excellent bike for stuff like this.

    Thanks!

    It is unfortunately my own country, Finland, that mostly lacks mountains. Sweden does have real mountains. They are not very high, with the highest being just 2100 m, but the northern latitude makes for fairly arctic conditions.

    You can easily turn this weakness into it's biggest strength - you can enjoy these kind of views without heavy climbing
    But seriously, yours and Hendrik blogs make me want to visit Finland. Wouldn't the north be suitable for some bikerafting?

    Yes, there are good places for bikepackrafting in the northern parts, e.g. the Pöyrisjärvi region, see Tour de Pöyrisjärvi.

    Korpijaakko is currently on a bike/hike/packrafting trip in the area. You might want to see if he posts a trip report on his blog.
