STF Abisko – Best top tour
A top tour means making a worthwhile effort to achieve some good skiing. It also means magnificent views, powder snow and unspoiled terrain: a perfect combination of peace and quiet and action.
On the way up, using climbing skins under our skis and pacing ourselves comfortably, we enjoy mountains of quietness. At the top we take off our climbing skins and enjoy the reward for our efforts – skiing down slopes with a euphoric kick of adrenalin. The area offers a multitude of classic peaks such as Vassitjåkka, Låktatjåkka, Kopparfjell and Kaisepakte. Our mountain skiing guide chooses a suitable "mountain of the day" based on prevailing weather and snow conditions. If you aren't used to your safety equipment we recommend joining our two-hour course "Avalanche Awareness Day" before your tour.
