    Maps

    Miscellaneous:
    If you are planning a trip to this region it is good to have your map before you travel here. A good website to buy your detailed maps of Sweden and the Fjällen area is:http://www.lantmateriet.se/

    I bought all my maps here. Not only for the Fjällen, but also for other regions and trips in Sweden. The map I used for this region is map BD10 Sareks Nationalpark and costs 99,50 SEK (excl. shipping). The scale is 1:100.000

    You can get an overview of all the "Fjäll" maps they sell here: Maps of the Swedish Fjällen

    The map BD10 doesn't cover the whole hiking trail of the Padjelantaleden, but does most of it. If you only hike the southern part of the trail (and the part of the trip I described on this page) you will only need to buy this map. To see the last bit of the trail (the northern part from Kisuris to Akka and Ritsem) you also will need map BD7 Sitasjaure-Ritsem.

    Mobile phone?? Or not?

    Miscellaneous:
    In general I would say it is best to leave your mobile phone at home as during 95% of this trip you won't be able to use it anyway. But..... sometimes it can come in handy, for changing the train booking for example, so here are a few tips that might come in handy.

    If you want to use your mobile you need to have a Telia subscription, others like Comviq won't work up here. The area where the mobile phone works is very limited, but at this particular part of the hike, between Nunjes and Kvikkjokk it actually does! After Nunjes, towards Padjelanta NP you can't receive any signal. After about hiking approximately 130 kilometres, just before arriving in Ritsem, you can connect again (the final 4 - 6 kilometres before arriving in Ritsem).

    All the mountain huts do have emergency phones. So in practice about every 10 - 20 kilometres it will be able to reach the outside world. But as it says these are 'emergency' phones and only allowed in cases of an emergency.
