Because of the virus. If it gets bad I think some might close for a bit (and also the issue of travelling by train from London). I realise there are more important things, but hiking might be one of the last things to do (if it doesn't involve travelling).


Mystic Mel says it'll be all over and done with by June.



No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

I do hope so, I've a flight booked for the end of July. Fingers crossed SAS don't go bust before then.

Where are you going Owen? It is a hiking trip?


I've received emails from hostels saying they're closing for now. I read on this forum that YHA is closed until 31 July.

I was going to walk from Narvik to Sarek but I cancelled my flights on Monday. It's not likely we'll be traveling again before then.

I went to Abisko last year, which should be on the way. It's beautiful there. Hopefully you will have a chance to go when it gets better.

Yes, Narvik is just over the border from Abisko. My route would have crisscross between Norway and Sweden before crossing Sarek to kvikjokk.  It might be possible I'd guess to go in the Autumn if things improve. Certainly be less mosquitos then.


Another option would be a ski tour, we'll just have to wait and see.
