Nikkaluokta to STF Kebnekaise mountain station

When going from Nikkaluokta to Kebnekaise mountain station, you have 19 km of beautiful hiking ahead of you. The first 5 km to Lake Láddjujávri consists of easy hiking through birch forest. Next to the lake you will find the restaurant Enoks, where you can stay for a meal or some easier snacks before continuing your hike. From this point you can choose to take a boat over Láddjujávri to save some time and make the hike a bit easier. Daily departures from mid June to mid September and the boat ride takes approximately 20-30 minutes. The boat trips are adapted to regular bus times Nikkaluokta – Kiruna.
