On the way to Gällivare, my daught dropped her "6th" milk tooth (and 4th within the week!).
Besides the brook, we took a breakfast. It's not clear by the picture, but there was terribly a crowd of mosquitos.
It's time to start walk! ...ai ai, captain!
Besides the rapids, Vuojatädno, we took a break.
We walked on a hanging bridge.
It was really a nice day and one could feel close to the Akka Mountains.
We found a beach where there is less crowd of mosquitos, and children enjoyed coooooold (around +5 deg.) water.
It could be called... a "jumping" mountain frog!?
We came back to the beach where we had taken a break the previous day, and set the tent there early in the evening (around 4 p.m.). The face of my son swelled up due to mass of mosquito's bite.
The children could not stand still...
taken by our daughter!
taken by our son!
The 4th day, we came back to Akka (STF Akka mountain hut) and took lunch inside. The children were so glad because of less mosquito! We took boat toward Ritsem and stayed at STF Ritsem mountain station. The 5th day, we were on the way back to Kiruna.
