One of Sweden’s highest trail, winding between mount Nipfjället and Städjän in the nature reserve named after the two peaks. An unforgettable hiking journey, through ancient mountain holdings, old-growth forest, glittering lakes and bogs.

Here are some pictures of the vast plateau taken on a misty day in July, and one a sunny one in September, when the berry bushes cover everything in red.

The peak I have photographed is the beautiful mount Städjan “a dwelling place for gods” as the Swedish scientist Olof Rudbeck called it, and a sacred mountain for the Sami people. To me it’s the land of the reindeer, because this is where you might see them roaming free if you visit during the summer season.
