Most of our cabins are located off the beaten track. This can make it a bit challenging to get to where the tracks begins. Troms Turlag offers no transportation - this must be arranged by the trekkers themselves.

Practical advices:

  • Kilpisjärvi: There is no bus connection during winter. You may catch a bus to Skibotn then continue to the border by taxi (40km). You can book a taxi from either Storfjord or Lyngen Taxis, which is located at Hatteng, around 20 km before Skibotn.
  • Rostadalen: Take a bus from Tromsø to Øverbygd then taxi from Øverbygd to Rostadalen (around 25 km). There are grocery shops in Øverbygd.
  • Dividalen: Take a bus from Tromsø to Øverbygd then a taxi to the end of the road at Dividalen (around 40 km).
  • Altevatn: Take a bus from Narvik or Tromsø and stop at Setermoen, from where you catch a taxi to Altevatn (40 km).
  • After Lappjord: You can end your hike by walking from Lappjord to Tornehamn and then catching a train to either Narvik or Sweden. To view train timetables, please visit: www.ofotbanen.no 
  • Nedrefosshytta: Check out options for travelling with river boat up Reisaelva.
  • Golda: Mallabåten may take you to across the lake, closer to the point where the three boarders meet.
