Tuolpagorni Map

When you arrive in Nikkaluokta, you will see this eye- catching mountain called Tuolpagorni a.k.a Dragons nest. Legends says that this is where the dragons from Drakryggen lay their eggs. Tuolpagorni is Sweden`s most sought after ski run.
The easiest way to the top is via Kittelbäcken. When approaching the summit you will find an anchor about 200 meter below the summit. Set the rope and make a 25 meter rappel down to the bowl via the northern colouir. When at the bowl, put your skis on and enjoy the view over Ladtjovagge. Ski the bowl, but do not touch the dragons eggs. In the bottom of the bowl you will find the exit colouir. It's recommended to ski all the way down to the bottom of the valley and with some luck you can see wildlife.
