We went backpacking in Sarek National Park but wanted to go deeper into the wilderness, which is why we chose to fly to the border with a helicopter, writes Sven Zacek. The park in northern Sweden is sometimes called the “Alaska of Europe,” he says. “The sight of the Rapa River Delta in autumn colors was amazing, and I asked the pilot to do a couple of circles before landing.”
