Day6: 27 August, Nåitevagge - Kåtokvagge, 16 km

First we ford Nåitejåkkåtj, then the brook from Lullihavagge. They are rather deep, deeper than our boots can handle. So we have to undress. It is no problem, but the water is cold. In the beginning is Lullihavagge comfortable. A few reindeers pass by, of which one is albino, i.e. white. We follow what we think is a reindeer track, leaving the brook far beneath us in a canyon. Further up in the valley do the stones take over. Here and there is a snowfield to walk on. A large stone attracts our attention again, it is yellow with a black, broad, wiggling band like a snake. So different from all the other stones. We pass the highest part, where the ground is all covered with stones, and the valley opens.

When we passed in 1982 was there a bridge over Kåtokjåkkå further downstream, but it was destroyed this year by the spring flood. This we were told at Kvikkjokk. We keep the height of 1000-1100 m and walk down to the brook. The landscape is barren, nothing grows here. Kåtokjåkkå is not easy to ford, I would not recommend doing it. The only way is to walk on the glacier, Pårtejekna. We follow the brook upstream to the edge of the glacier. From the glacier opening do the water exit with full speed. Grey, swift, and cold. We continue along the glacier for a few hundred meters, until it is flat enough to walk on. The glacier give no problem, no snow on it, no rifts. It is not even slippery, the ice is covered with gravel. There is no need for special equipment, our rubber boots are good enough as it is today. We leave the glacier, continue on the moraine towards Ivarlako and are looking for a place to spend the night. It takes a few kilometers before our requirements are fullfilled. We require water nearby, grass, and a soft ground. No fakir.....
