For those who want to go on a shorter tour in the National Park, a Sami settlement or the Abiskoeatnu canyon work well as destinations. These walks take about an hour.
About the activity
Take the designated path behind the railway station. After 300 m you will come to the Sami camp, a reconstruction of life in an autumn and spring camp. The camp contains storage buildings, Sami wooden huts and drying facilities.
Go to the bridge beyond the road to the cableway. Here you will see the Abiskoeatnu river tumble down a tunnel dug beneath the 1899 railway building. The gravel footpath under the railway and motorway E10 leads to the most beautiful part of the canyon. Dippers nest here. The canyon, which consists of hard schist and dolomite, has profuse vegetation.
