Historical hike to Själbmátjåhkkå
Sunday June 19 we hike to the top of Själbmátjåhkkå. The starting point is close to the Norwegian border, by the lake Guoledisjávrre. It is a historical hike where we will tell about the history of the Silver Road and have a look at what remains of a cobolt mine from the late 1800’s. Kurt Carlman will tell us about it, his grandfather Per-August Carlman started the mine and worked there.
The entire hike is approximately 10 km. We walk at a slow pace and will be back after approximately 4,5 H. It is not particularly steep, except for one short passage. (At 3 pm there is a showing at an old cabin by the border that some are planning to take part in.)
No registration needed. Feel free to bring your own fika. Unfortunately no car pooling because of the situation around Covid-19. There is a parking spot in Guoledis.
Price: For you who hold a Top of Arjeplog card 200 SEK. Others 400 SEK. Can be paid through Swish or cash on site. Free of charge for anyone 18 years of age or younger. The Top of Arjeplog card is available for purchase on site.
The situation around Covid-19: We make sure to keep our distance during the hike, even though we are outdoors. The pandemic is very much a reality and there are so called risk groups taking part in the hikes. Because of this, we do not arrange car pooling right now.
