Trygvebu - Argaladhytta, Nordlandsruta

550 km, Bjørnfjell (Narvik, north) - Børgefjell (Helgeland, south), one month

This trail runs in north Norway, passing through Okstindan and Nord-Helgeland, Saltfjellet, Sulitjelmafjellene and Narvikfjellene. On the Swedish side, the trail passes Padjelanta National Park. Here it runs parallel to the better known Nordkalottruta (or Nordkalottleden in Swedish). The Nordkalottleden continues much further north.

It is an adventurous and lonely trail. The nature is endlessly wild. The trail is cairned or waymarked entirely. And you will find lovely little huts, some 50 of them in total, on regular intervals. But the huts are not staffed, nor will you find food in store. You have to carry your food yourself. But your tent can be left home. To open the huts, you need a key. Luckily, the DNT key, available from the DNT offices, fits on all DNT and local huts. Along the Swedish part of the trail are some staffed huts.

  • Positive A quiet trail high up in the North of Scandinavia. I liked the wildness of the area. The huts are very pleasant; makes hiking easy.

  • Saltfjellet is a beautiful name for an equally beautiful and rugged area in northern Norway. Although remote, it is easy walking. There are small cabins where you can stay overnight. Bring your own food.
