The Swedish mountains in summertime
Stekenjokk juli 2010

Stjärnvallens Lärka

The Wilderness road over Stekenjokk
An incredibly beautiful road. Some people think that it is Swedens most beautiful road to explore.
You drive your way up to the bare mountain. Just stop along the road a take a walk up to the
nearest summit on Stekenjokk. You will meet a really great view and the beautiful flora of Stekenjokk!

During the winther ther's a lot of snow and the road is closed.
The road is open from the 6'th of june to the 15'th of october.
During the summer some snow  remains (as you can see in the pics) and you might see
reindeer searching for coolness on the small spots of snow.
