TITLE: HOW DO YOU ACTUALLY LEAVE JÄCKVIK?
LOCATION: JÄCKVIK - ARVIDSJAUR
MISSION: LEAVE FREEZE DRIED FOOD BEHIND US
DATE: 2017-07-20

Even though we called the bus company yesterday to confirm that there would be a bus heading out of Jäckvik today, no bus came. Apparently it only passes by here Mon/Wen/Fri during the summer but every day in winter? Just as it was starting to sink in that we might end up stuck here for a whole day, we decided start asking around for a ride to Arjeplog. We found oursevles in luck as the a lady had just dropped of her kids and happened to be heading home to...Arjeplog! On the way our friendly driver pointed out Sweden's only pink church as we passed by it, much appreciated. We grabbed a cup of tea downtown at a fishing equipment shop and café, and got on the bus to Arjeplog, where we stayed the night at a hostel. It is really not simple to get from a non-standard start or endpoint of the trail back to a railway hub. Tomorrow we have to first go to Jokkmokk and then transfer to Murjek. Lots of busses. To celebrate the conclusion of the challenging part of this trip we treated ourselves to a fancy dinner at Laponia Hut. It was all local delicacies such as elk, bear and raindeer, and we deserved all of it. Oh, and the dessert was for a recommended minimum of two persons.
