Aperçu du document

The Idea
Leaving our places with public transports, crossing Europe on the train, to discover the Sarek Range,
200 km inside the Arctic Circle.

The Rail and Ride project : A ski touring expedition.
Lapland, famously known to be the paradise of cross country expeditions, is not so often a destination for skitourers. Our first tour in 2010 showed us the amazing possibilities there are in this region, "lost between Sweden
and Norway".
As we have solid experience of the Nordic environment, this expedition will make us leave the large valleys
where the Kungsleden (King's trail) takes place, letting us to the isolation and technical nature of the Sarek
The Idea is to mix classical ski tours with hiking across Scandinavia. The plan is to set base camps all the way
along our path, and from these, we will go around to the surrounding summits, reachable with great ridges and
faces that only ask to be skied !

The Rail and Ride project : A sustainable transport praise.
As we love distant adventures, our choice is to travel only with sustainable transport. With this goal, we decided
to join the experience of traveling by train to a ski-touring expedition beyond the Arctic circle.

This project is the third of its kind, using the train to go ski-touring in Lapland. As we appreciated this way of
traveling and organization, and encouraged by the success of the two movies made out of these experiences, we
want to increase the range of our audience.
Because we believe in the idea of joining distant travels and sustainable transport!

When ?
As Spring is the best season to ski in Lapland, as the days are longer than winter, and lakes are still frozen
enough to allow us to walk trough fairly long distances, we plan to realize our project from the 23th of March to
the 11th of April.

Our trip lasts less than 3 weeks. Through this project we want to prove the fact that it is possible to find solutions
to travel long distances, and minimizing our impact on the environment, within a month. A trip accessible to
As a consequence of different reports and movies we made from the last two trips, at least 20 people traveled to
Lapland using the train.

Media repercussions
For this adventure, Bruno Peyronnet, professional film maker, is coming with us, who will film the whole trip.
A documentary produced by Helioprod will be made. It will be presented on the channel MontagneTV, and
Helioprod is in contact with other channels.
In parrallel, the movie will be presented on different festivals, linked to sustainable transports or outdoors sports,
or through local associations.

We have been talked about on different situations:

on the Internet: our reports have been published on different websites, and have been discussed on
several forums (camptocamp.org, skitour.fr, atacamag.com, mountainwilderness.org, skirandonnenordique.com)

in magazines linked to outdoor sports (carnets d'aventures n°26...)

through the films realized and presented in different well known events in our region and around ( Grand
Bivouac 2010 and 2011, Nuits polaires 2011, Rencontres Expé 2011 and 2012, "d'un regard à l'autre" festival,
Festival Mont Blanc Durable ).

The expedition :
Phase 1 :

Sarek Range crossing, Base camps every second day or so, from which we will go to the surrounding summits.
Phase 2 :

Crossing to Norway and the fjord Hellemobotn, where a boat shall come pick us up.

To guarantee a good mood for everybody and keep an excellent team spirit, all nights will be spent under our
Tepee ( 10 kg for 23 squared meters ), warmed up with a small wood stove ( 800 grams ).

The ways of transport we chose make us need light gear, as we will need to carry our gear in the train and all
along the expedition.
A good ratio between protection against the cold climate ( -30°C at night ) and lightness is to be fou nd !
