Hiking in Sweden スウェーデンでハイキング

DSC_4706

Not to be bragging,  but oh my god the Swedish mountains are wonderful! Last week my dad, my cousin, two friends of mine and I went hiking in the Swedish alps, in Grövelsjön. Situated almost on the border to Norway we did day trips ranging from 8 to 22 km climbing both Swedish and Norwegian mountains. At some mountain tops there are lakes!
自慢するつもりがないけど、何てスウェーデンの山最高!先週父、従兄弟、友達を二人とGrövelsjönというところにハイキングしに行った。ノルウェーの国境に位置され、毎日8から22キロまでの一日のスウェーデンかノルウェーのハイキングルートを挑戦した。ある山頂に湖があるよ!

The clouds, the lakes, the naked mountains – they look like amazing water colour paintings from the romanticism. It’s simply stunning.
雲、湖、裸の山。すべてロマン主義からの素敵な水彩画みたいだね。ただ見事。

Other mountains still have snow, although it’s in the middle of summer. It’s indeed an odd landscape.
ほかの山に雪まだ残っている、真夏なのに。確かに変わった風景だね。

And no matter what mountain you climb you will have a beautiful view over the vast and almost completely uninhabited Swedish and Norwegian alp landscape with its lakes, woods and mountains.
何の山に登っても、広大なほとんど無人のスウェーデンとノルウェーの湖、森、山があるきれい景色が見える。

The Swedish mountains are fairly flat, with no too harsh peaks. You don’t really need any mountaineering equipment to get up vertical walls or so – all you need is a good pair of hiking boots and a good spirit. I really like this kind of mountaineering, which is more like hiking or walking just with a slight uphill inclination all the time. Nevertheless, without much effort and just after walking some 10 minutes or so you will have a even more breathtaking view than just a little earlier. It’s a very rewarding activity.
スウェーデンの山は比較的に平坦で険しくではない。それよりも丘陵の感じだから、特別な垂直の壁の山登りの道具とか必要じゃないし。いいハイキングのブーツと元気ささえあれば何とかなる。こういう山登り本当に気に入っている。少しだけの傾きのハイキングなのに、少しだけの時間と協力で少しさっきよりもっと素敵な景色が見えてくる。だから、とても報いのある活動だ。

But of course, reaching the peak is the most rewarding.
でももちろん、一番報いのある旬間はもちろん山頂に着くのだ。

Relaxing at the top of a mountain, watching over the world, no sound but the wind. I really want to go next year again. It’s also nice how good everything you eat taste during and after hiking. Instant coffee during a break after 10 km of rough walking tastes fantastic and the cold beer you get when you return to the cabin in the night is nothing short of fantastic.
上から世界を見ながら、風邪だけの音で、山頂での休憩。本当に来年も行きたい。もう1つのいいポイントはハイキングしながらとハイキング後の食事の味だ。10分休憩のインスタントコーヒーや一日のハイキングからキャビンに帰ったら飲む冷やしビールが最高の味だ。

It’s really easy and convenient to go hiking in the mountains over here. You can rent a fully equipped cabin for around 200 euros per week with room for 5 or 6 people. And there are plenty of mountains to get on top of. And if you are not into the hiking, there are other things to do such as picking berries or just enjoying the different wildlife. Look at this little dotterel (Fjällpipare, mother) watching out for his little chicken for example🙂
ここの山でハイキングするのとても心地がいいし、らくだ。すべてがそろった5や6人のキャビンを一週間を30,000円で借りられる。登れる山もいっぱいあるし。しかも、ハイキングをそこまで好きじゃなくても出来ることがいっぱいある。ベリーを拾ったり、特別な野生生物をたのしんだりするとか。例えば、この可愛い親子コバシチドリ(小嘴千鳥)。

    1. Thank you! Yes, I hope you can do that some day – these mountains are really great because they are fairly accessible but still so amazing🙂
