Keb Haute Route

Kebnekaise - Nallo - Vistas

Join us in the Swedish wilderness, spectacular surroundings, Scandinavian mountain culture and charm at its best! Up in the very North, the most high alpine area of Sweden, we ski the Haute Route starting from the Kebnekaise mountain station to Vista’s mountain hut via Tarfala hut and Nallo hut.

During the five days traverse we customize the choices of routes depending on the weather and the best snow. At the end of the week we climb and ski Kebnekaise, Sweden’s highest mountain.
