Prinskullen

Prinskullen,The Prince Hill, is located on the ridge of Vallevárre. At the beginning of the tour towards the summit the hiker passes over an area with ancient remains from the first structures built in Kvikkjokk. The path which is easy to walk on was made by the mine workers in the middle of the 1600s on their way to the silver mines in Padjelanta and Sarek.

Along the path towards Prinskullen there are many trees knocked down by a tornado which went through this area in the winter of 2001. The forest borders the natural reserve of Kamajokk. The reserve includes old growth forest including the major part of these trees the storm knocked down as well as the marshy areas.

When one is up on the summit of Prinskullen, the hiker has the whole continuous mountain range ahead. The view over Pårte Mountain in Sarek, the Tarrekaise Massif and the Kvikkjokk Delta is magnificent from here. Continuing along Vallevárre, the hiker comes to Vallevágge and Vallespiken. Vallevárre is a popular way for mountain hikers to get into Sarek and Padjelanta.

In 1732 Carl Linnaeus climbed Prince Hill on his way to the mountains. He writes about his first encounter with the mountain area:

When I got to the top I didn’t know if I was in Asia or Africa, because both the soil and the vegetation were unknown to me. I had now come to the mountains.

Prinskullen is 749 meters above sea level, which means a climb of 450 meters from Kvikkjokk. The hike up to Prinskullen and back is 7 km and takes about 3 hours.
