Food is an important part of any trail. You burn heaps of calories on the road and your body needs sustenance to keep going. I found it a challenge to figure out what kind of foods would suit me to take on the Vasaloppsleden. For example, I’ve figured out through previous hikes that I don’tContinue reading “Food on the trail: what worked and what didn’t work?”

Tuesday July 16th 2019 Last day! And a short day into Mora too, with only 9 km left on the Vasaloppsleden. It was raining in the morning and I was dreading it.

Sunday July 14th 2019 Just like the day before, I set my alarm to 7.30 am, but I was already up by 6.45 am. After breakfast, I packed up and started hiking at 8 am. It was nice out and my confidence was growing. So far, I hadn’t had any knee problems! Sure, I wasContinue reading “Vasaloppsleden day 3 – Tennäng to Axisstugan (27 km)”
