Kebnekaise - Singi

This is where the fantastic mountains start to rise majestically into the air and you enter into one of the most beautiful valleys of the trek. Only one kilometre after the Kebnekaise Mountain Station you start to feel that you have entered into the wilderness and you pass Tuolpagorni.

Toulpagorni is the most impressive peak of Kebnekaise and is probably Sweden's most photographed mountain. It stretches 1,662 meters above sea level and not only has a prominent position, but also resembles a large bowl, which is often filled with snow.

The path winds along the slightly sloping foot of Kebnekaise. You will find good camping sites downstream from the bridge before Lillberget and on the other side of Lillberget at the entrance to the valley. The massive sides of the mountain frame the trail along the stream.

At first, the path is easy and the stream runs quietly alongside, but the terrain soon becomes more and more rocky. The path continues slightly uphill to the crown preceding the Singi Mountain Hut. Many think that the stretch from the "Singistugorna 3 km" sign to the cabins feels much longer.

Take a moment before the path starts to slope downwards. The view over Tjäkjavagge and the Kungsleden trail toward Kaitum is magnificent. Dramatic clouds often sweep over the peaks here.

Singi lies open and bare in the shadow of Ladtjovagge and Tjäktjavagge. There are toilets here, but no food. Singi is the crossroads for trails that lead in all four directions. You are arriving from the east and Kebnekaise; Hukejaure lies to the west. Kungsleden runs south to Vakkotavare and Saltoluokta and, to the north, in the direction Fjällräven Classic turns, to Abisko.

If you walk at a normal pace, the stretch between Kebnekaise and the Singi Mountain Hut takes 5-6 hours, not counting breaks. The best location for putting up your tent is a few kilometres after the cabin.
