Packraft in Sami Country

Packraft on their backs, Cyril, Emile and Dom go deep into the tundra south of the Sarek National Park in Sweden. Little by little, the alternation of walking and packrafting in one of the last wilderness of Europe initiates them to the mysteries of silence and slowness. The masks fall.

For ten days, they meet no one, nothing human except for a few remnants of Sami camps. They are alone and the autumn lights above the Arctic Circle are so beautiful.
