On this tour we explore “Treriksrøysa”, the tri border area between Norway, Sweden, and Finland.
The point of departure is the Altevatn Lake, on which will be heading east for over 50 kilometers. Afterwards we will be crossing the Leinavatn Lake and reach Swedish Lapland. From here, the route leads north, across a vast, hilly landscape where we pass several lakes and isolated sami settlements. Throughout the tour we can enjoy the panoramic view over the Nordic mountain landscape.
When we reach the “three corners”, we pass through woodlands for some time, before we enter Norway again and turn south. On our way back, we will cross almost the entire Dividal National Park!
For the first days we will mainly be using Snowmobile trails, which connect the Sami settlements with fish abundant lakes. Later on, when heading south again, we will have to break our own trail through pristine wilderness.
Calm after the storm
Tough weather conditions, and lots of snow, make this tour demanding, and the participants should be fit and enduring.
Even though we spend most nights in cabins, we will stay in tents at least twice!
Previous experience in dogsledding is beneficial but not necessary. The guide leads the way and takes care of the group. During this tour we will cover about 350 kilometers.
The mountains of “inner Troms” are fascinating and impressive! Their craggy peaks rise 1800 out of the Northern Atlantic.
Towards the east, the terrain levels out, and merges into Swedish Lapland ́s hilly landscape.
Among Norway ́s borders there are two “tri point areas”.
The first lies far up north, close to Kirkenes, where Norway, Finland, and Russia meet. Our tour will lead us to the other one, the tri border area of Norway, Sweden, and Finland.
Here, you can be at Sweden ́s most northern and Finland ́s most western points at the same time! Especially for Fins, this tri point is a special attraction: it is Finland ́s single mountain area, while the rest of the country is quite flat.
