Nordkalottruta / Nordkalottleden / Kalottireitti

The Nordkalottruta (Norwegian; Swedish Nordkalottleden; Finnish Kalottireitti; Englisch Arctic Route) leads through Norway, Sweden and Finland. The 34 stages and thus most of this trail are identical to the European long-distance path E1. The Nordkalottruta starts in Kautokeino in the north and ends in Sulitjelma in the south.

Part of the route leads along the Grensesømmen and Nordlandsruta, which the E1 follows further south after Nordkalottruta / Nordkalottleden.
