Preparing for big solo hike

Tomorrow, Thursday 4 August, I will depart on a big, solo hike. For safety reasons, I will write down here exactly what my plans are.

Thursday 4/8, 20:00. Departure from Hellemobotn (Vuodnabahta), Tysfjord kommun, Norway. Start hiking over the trail east towards Sweden for around 2 kilometers, then turn right, southward on the Bieslptå plateau.

Friday 5/8. In the morning I will hike to Kanonen, above the Stabburselva canyon, and back. In the afternoon I will leave the trail and go south along Rávggajåhkå towards Ruonasvágge

Saturday 6/8–Saturday 13/8 (exact sleeping places unknown). Up through Ruonasvágge. Crossing from Norway into Sweden (Jokkmokk kommun) between Rr 246 and Rr 247. Along the western side of Slappejaure/Slahpejávrre and crossing Slappejåkka/Slahpejåhkå. Along Målkumjåkka/Moalkkomjåhkå and the northeastern slopes of Vieterjaure/Viehjerjávrre. South crossing Årjep Slappetjåkka/Oarjep Slahpetjåhkkå to the eastern side of Njåmmeljaure/Njoammeljávrre. Crossing Njåmmeljåkka/Njoammeljåhkå, east to Sallohaure/Sållohávrre, then south and southwest along Rakamjåkka/Rahkamjåhkå to the eastern side of Arajaure/Árajávrre. Around Arajaure eastern and southern side, then southwest along Kuoutåivejauratjah/Guovdoajvejávratja, reaching the plateau above Vestenjaure/Vastenjaure/Vastenjávrre. Over the ridge of Vielkispakte/Vielggisbákte westward, along the southern edge of Paktekiesj-jauratj/Båktegiesjávrásj. Descending to Hurrejåkka/Hurrejoahkå, crossing Hurrejåkka and continuing west along the northen shore of Vestenjaure. Crossing Kuoutelisjåkka/Guovddelisjåhkå. Climbing Rastenjarka/Rastesnjárgga, then west to Rastevare/Rastesvárre and along the northern shore of Rastesjauratj. Continuing westward through a pass, then west and southwest along a stream leading to Norway. Crossing into Norway (Sørfold kommune) between Rr 242 and Rr 242a on the trail to Ragohytta. Following the trail from Ragohytta westwards in the direction of Storskogvasshytta. In the forest 100 meter above Storskogvasshytta, turning left on the trail to Sølvskardvatnan and Litlverivatnet/Bassejávrre. Crossing at Litlverivassforsen, then left, south, up the mountain. Along Skardvatnet to Råggejávrre at Svenskhammaren/Tsiekimtjårro, then left again, east on the trail over Litlverivasshamran, along Boadnjásjroahtte, Skråisen, Flatkjølen/Duolbbagjiegńa. South of Rágojiegńa I will turn right, southward over Bálgestjårro/Bålggesčorru. Crossing into Sweden at Rr 240D, at the edge of Rago nasjonalpark, just north of Øvre Veiskivatnet. Then southeast to Kasakjaure/Gásakjávrre. South along the eastern shore of Kasakjaure, crossing the stream coming from Messingmalmvatnan*. South, over or araound Skaitevare/Skájdevárre to the outflow of Leirvatnet at the Norwegian/Swedish-border. Crossing the stream coming out of Leirvatnet and walking along the border, along Rr 240 Aa and another lake until I turn right, into Norway (Fauske kommune), into Skagmadalen, until Blåmannsisvatnet. Back northeast a bit, then turning right uphill to a pass just above lake 1098, then south along the stream to Bajep Sårjåsjávrre/Bajit Sorjosjávri. Turning right along the northern and western shores of Bajep Sårjåsjávrre until I pick up the trail leading from Sorjushytta/Sorjoshytta to Sulitjelma. Following this trail, along Bajep Sårjåsjávrásj and Storelvvatnan to Ny-Sulitjelma, then down to Sulitjelma/Sulečielbma.

* from this point there are several potentially tricky river crossings; if any fail, I return to Svenskhammaren and follow the trail from there westwards until the road.

Saturday 13/8 or Sunday 14/8: arrival in civilisation. I will send text messages to several people informing them that I am safe and on my way back.
