"Mobile phone?? Or not?" Njunjes Packing List Tip by sim1
Njunjes What to Pack: 2 reviews and 1 photos
In general I would say it is best to leave your mobile phone at home as during 95% of this trip you won't be able to use it anyway. But..... sometimes it can come in handy, for changing the train booking for example, so here are a few tips that might come in handy.
If you want to use your mobile you need to have a Telia subscription, others like Comviq won't work up here. The area where the mobile phone works is very limited, but at this particular part of the hike, between Nunjes and Kvikkjokk it actually does! After Nunjes, towards Padjelanta NP you can't receive any signal. After about hiking approximately 130 kilometres, just before arriving in Ritsem, you can connect again (the final 4 - 6 kilometres before arriving in Ritsem).
All the mountain huts do have emergency phones. So in practice about every 10 - 20 kilometres it will be able to reach the outside world. But as it says these are 'emergency' phones and only allowed in cases of an emergency.
