Guided hike to Trollsjön (Rissajaure)
- Duration: 7 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Abisko
The tour begins through mountain birch forest, the path soon takes us up past the tree line and further up into Kärkevagge which means the Stone valley in Sami. The valley is filled with boulders of various sizes some large as multi-storey houses, which gave the name of the valley. At the end of Kärkevagge lies Trollsjön (Troll lake). The lake is incredibly clear and has a depth of 36m and in good conditions you can see all the way down to the bottom. Once at the lake, it is time for lunch and for those who dare a refreshing dip in the clear but ice cold water. The lake's Sami name is Rissajaure which means The lake that sparkles like fire.
During the hike your guide will tell you about the history of the area and about the plants and wildlife that you can find in the mountains.
