Suliskongen is Norway’s highest mountain north of the Arctic Circle. The trip from the tourism association cabin in Ny-Sulitjelma required 8-9 hours of skiing. On the trip, two glaciers and the large, flat Sulitjelma glacier must be crossed. These glaciers are among Scandinavia’s largest glaciers. From the top, you can see large parts of Salten and the three major Swedish national parks Stora Sjøfallet, Padjelanta and Sarek.
From Ny-Sulitjelma the hike goes up into the mountain in the direction of the Sulitjelma glacier. Up to the first glacier, there is relatively straightforward skiing with stunning views to the surrounding peaks. At the Sulitjelma glacier, the landscape opens up and you continue from the glacier fall to the foot of the mountain. From the glacier to the foot it is about 3 km and then there remains just over 500 meters up to the top. From the foot, the route goes straight up to the top.
The trip to Suliskongen is a spectacular trip to go randone skiing in the spring. At the top, you get a beautiful view of Bodø, Rago National Park, the Sulitjelma mountains and into Laponia.
Fun fact: Suliskongen is a part of the story of “The Seven Sisters”. In this legend, Suliskongen is the father of the seven sisters (a chain of mountain peaks located on the Helgeland coast).
