Hiking package to Rissajaure (Trollsjön)
This valley, shaped by the last ice age more than 10 000 years ago, is one of the most mysterious and beautiful places Swedish Lapland can offer. At the end of the valley lies Rissajaure, one of the clearest lakes in Europe. Its crystal icy water lies below the steep rock faces of granite cliffs, and provides a stunning visage of the Lapland allure.
In this package, we provide you with everything you need for an enchanting hiking day up to the lake. We will supply you with a map, a compass, information about the area and where the best paths are. The adventure starts with a short drive to the starting point of the hike. When we arrive at the parking spot, we show you along the start of the trail before we leave you to go on you own adventure up to the lake. When you return after your hike to the starting point, we will be waiting for you by the car, to take you back home to Björkliden.
The hike is about 12 km in total and 350 vertical meters.
