Sarek is often called “The EuropeanAlaska” not only for its Arctic beauty, but also because it is the largest purely wild territory on the mainland. There are no marked trails, cellular coverage or rescue teams - a place where your experience in the wild really matters. When you reach the middle of the park,you are at least 100km (65 miles) away from the nearest village around.
I chose to visit the park for 3 weeks in the Autumn of 2011. That was just before the first heavy snow storms arrived and the wild rivers were easier to cross.
This trip to the Arctic was quite different to me, as the tight timing demanded to trek nearly every day instead of waiting for the best Light at the same place for long periods. In fact, given the stormy skies and the ever changing weather, that strategy proved to be surprisingly productive for this project.
