This was a skating expedition (they also skied a bit) in Lapland,
Jan 11 to 16 2016 by 3 members of Stockholm skating club SSSK, led by
The main goal was to skate on lake Vastenjaure, which they
accomplished on day 4 , possibly the first recorded skate on that lake.
The total distance of 164 km, and the distance on day 4 of 50 km may
not seem impressive, but remember that this was early January, above the
Arctic Circle, so there was only a few hours of daylight. Temperatures
were around -25C.
They spent the long cold nights in 3 hikers' huts along the trail.
