Boat Kvikkjokk to the Padjelantaleden Jul 20, 2006
When you hike the Padjelanta trail you will need to take a boat to the start and at the end a boat crossing. The boat from Kvikkjokk (south side of the trail) to the Padjelantaleden is a nice and small boat (see photo). This made the little boat trip even more enjoyable as we were the only passengers on board. It is a half an hour boat ride on Tarra River.

The boat times from Kvikkjokk to the Padjelantaleden (2016):

09:30 & 12:30 (1/7 - 17/7)

09:30 & 12:30 & 16:30 (18/7 - 20/8)

09:30 & 12:30 (21/8 - 04/09)

Boat times from Padjelantaleden to Kvikkjokk (2016):

10:00 & 13:00 (1/7 - 17/7)

10:00 & 13:00 & 17:00 (18/7 - 20/8)

10:00 & 13:00 (21/8 - 04/09)

There is a sign at the waterside with the telephone number of the boatsman. The times are a bit flexible, it is only a small boat and a short tour, and the boatsman waits until everyone from the bus has arrived. So you don't need to worry right away if the bus has a slight delay.

If you want to make sure up front the boat is going, and want to make a booking, you can give Björn Sarstad (the boatsman) a call. That is what we did, and where we got the info regarding the price. At the time (2006) the boat costs 100 SEK per person, one way.

You can find contactinfo an telephone number on their website:
