Codes

  • Start and finish. Grövelsjön or Treriksröset. At the start and finish the hand should be placed on the lodge door and on Treriksröset (the cairn).
NOTE! Exceptions apply to White Ribbon and Green Ribbon 2021
due to Covid-19. As an alternative to Treriksröset, Abisko and the mountain station's blue door also apply as a start or finish. 
From 2022-01-01, Trerikröset will return as the only approved northern start / finish.                                                                                                   
  • The tour should be conducted along the mountain.
  • The following points must be passed through or west of:
    
 Torne Träsk, eastern tip
Nikkaluokta
 Saltoluokta
Jäckvik
Håkafot
Åre (Design-post Åre. SWEREF 7025351, 409546)
  • With obvious environmental and nature consideration
  • According to the Swedish Right of Public Access and other applicable rules such as border crossings during pandemics or other restrictions on crossing national borders. Littering, scribbling, violation of reserve rules lead to disqualification.
  • 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. Break due to illness/injury (of seriuos type) is approved, if the tour continues at the same place and without any unnecessary delay.
  • Accommodation. Tents and/or huts. At the depots the walker/skier is free to use any available suite ...
  • Without motorized appliance. The exception is boat transport that crosses mountain lakes. Where there are trails that are possible to hike and that run parallel to a lake, these trails should be used.
  • For safety reasons, not as proof of implementation, an emergency transmitter is the only mandatory equipment required to carry out. With a sattelite based InReach/SPOT/PLB (or equivalent) to carry out the tour as safely as possible. If you want others to be able to follow your journey (blue link in Tours on the go), you need to send us a link to your emergency transmitter. Not mandatory but more fun. 
  •  It is not allowed to begin the Green Ribbon after 15:th of August, of safety reasons.
  • At the finish line (or no later than two weeks after), the hiker must submit a report via the Diploma Form. There they describe i.a. start and finish dates, distance traveled (total number of km), etc.
  • 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. But, it is okay to let someone send out boxes to depots during the trip to limit the lying time. If the depot can be reached with normal parcel deliveries.
  • Food and equipment supplies to be sent out in advance may be sent by (Bussgods, friends/acquaintances etc.) to places the hiker will pass, but they have to be picked up by the hiker 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 hiker him-/herself.
  • The time of the trip is counted from date to date. Whole days. Not hours.
  • And REMEMBER - as a White or Green Ribboner "Bandare" you are an important ambassador for our shared responsibility for the mountains as the unique natural and cultural environment they are, and should be for future generations!
