FATMAP difficulty grade
April 14th, 2022.
The day has finally come: we are leaving to the Artic Circle.
Excited, stressed, happy, relieved - that bizarre mixture is what I'm feeling at the very moment I step out from the airplane in Oslo.
And that we miss our connecting flight to Narvik... The adventure can start.
We left from Narvik on April 15th, with 50kg of dehydrated food, 4 pulkas, our skis, expedition tent, gas, mountaineering equipment and some other useful stuff you might want to take on a polar expedition. In the ten days we spent there, we established 4 camps, spending usually one full day to connect one camp to the other, and another day skiing and wandering around to find some wild summits.
We reached Abisko on the 24th of April, in a semi-zombie state to find back civilisation, e.g.
hot water and cooked food !
