Transportation by tourist bus (the same vehicle all the time).

Route and stop locations: see the following description.
Physical conditions: The excursion takes us north to within 360 km from the Arctic Circle, but summers compare with for instance Maine and New Hampshire, being fairly warm and with many sunny days. We will go by the same tourist bus all the time. Walking is comfortable along roads, tracks, and laid-out paths, and nowhere longer than about 1.5 km. There is a climb to the panoramic view at Stop 5, but the view is fine even 200 m lower, where the bus must wait. We are not crossing any wet ground. If July happens to have been wet there might be insects on a windless day in August, but they are not really bad and do not carry diseases.
Meals: Please inform if you need special food (vegetarian, allergies).
