How

The tour should be conducted along the mountain range and…

» With obvious environmental and nature consideration
» By your own power. Sled dog, horse or kite -like non motorized aids are allowed, but will be registered as such.
» In its entirety, without interruption (see more below)
» Without motorized appliance (except for the boat transfers crossing some mountain lakes between the trails)
» With SPOT transmitter (or equivalent) to carry out the tour as safely as possible
» According to the Swedish Right of Public Access and other regulations.

External support (e.g. transportation of food, equipment etc.) may not be received. Someone other than the walker/skier may not send out the deposits (of food etc.) onto the mountain.

Food and equipment supplies to be sent out in advance may be sent by (Bussgods, friends/acquaintances etc.) to places the walker/skier will pass, but they have to be picked up by the walker/skier him-/herself. The same goes for additional equipment supplements (e.g. gasoline and fresh food at depots), which therefore also must be arranged by the mountaineer him-/herself.

Break due to illness/injury (of seriuos type) is approved if the tour continues at the same place and without any unnecessary delay.

The tour can be conducted all year round.

As a mountaineer with an approved application you have the possibilty to rent your gear for the White or Green Ribbon Tour at Rent-a-Plagg in Åre. Contact them directly for information!
