Kebnekaise is Sweden's highest mountain with a height of 2117 m. The mountain region is very beautiful already from the distance, although Kebnekaise in the right part of this picture is obscured by clouds.
The STF Kebnekaise Fjällstation is situated at the foot of the mountains and is one of the biggest STF stations with about 400 beds. During winter the supplies for the station can be transported with snowmobiles, but in summertime one has to hike or use the helicopter.
It was strong wind at this day from the Ladtjovagge to the right, and we observed the flights. When the helicopter had taken off, it moved in a curve and seemed to get additional speed very rapidly from the wind.
Some older pictures can be found in Norrlandsflyg Helicopters I.
