Welcome to the Swedish Alps

 

This page is dedicated to ski mountaineering in the two most alpine areas in Sweden, Kebnekaise and Sarek, situated in northern part of the country. From an international point of view, the height of the Swedish mountains are not too impressive. The highest mountain, Kebnekaise, is 2104 m high, and another 10 peaks reaches 2000 meter above sea level. Still the areas attract visitors from many different countries, maybe due to its desolated nature.
