Rusjka Lapland

There is nothing like camping under the midnight sun. Mt Rusjka (1708m) and Unna Ruskkas (1477m) in the background sit at 67°52" N is well within the Arctic Circle in the Scandinavian Mountains (Scandes) in Swedish Lapland. The camp (let me know if you can see the tent!) is along the Kungsleden at Singistugorna. The Kungsleden or King's Trail is a hiking trail in the far north of Sweden that is approximately 440-kilometre (270 mi) long, between Abisko in the north and Hemavan in the south. It passes through one of Europe's largest remaining wilderness areas. Love to get back there one day.
