Alesjaure-Vistas

Cross the suspension bridge at the cabin site, then follow the trail in the direction of Alisjávri Sámi settlement. Just before the settlement, the trail turns off eastwards up an easily-hiked slope. The trail then follows lakes Bajip and Vuolip Čazajávri. Between the lakes lies a peat goahte hut in disrepair, but which can give some shelter during a stopover. After the lakes, there is a steep downhill slope towards Visttasvággi Valley. The view of the valley and surrounding mountain summits is magnificent. Visttasjohka Visttasjohkka stream winds along close to the steep mountainsides. At the bridge across Moarhmmájohka there is a rocky ravine and a waterfall. This can be a good spot to rest. Just before the Vistas cabin, you have a glimpse of the Siehtagas glacier jutting out over the valley. The last part of the hike to the cabin passes through verdant mountain birch forest.

There are good tent pitches on the grassy pastures at the beginning of the hike. Along the southern part of the trail there are tent pitches near the stream. Near the Vistas cabin on the west side of the bridge there are plenty of camping spots.
