Day 3, from Gappohytte to Rostahytte, was probably the highlight of the trip with the most variety in landscapes, and many flowers and birds.

Alpine catchfly, Lychnis alpina
broad glacial valleys
Swedish-Norwegian border: back in Norway after a short section through Sweden.
Very rocky the last few hundred meters to the pass at around 1000 m altitude.
Beautiful green valley, which reminded me of Mongolia, just without the gers, horses and yaks.
Moor-king, Pedicularis sceptrum-carolinum
Rosta hyttene: we slept in the 'new' hut on the right. The large hut on the left is the Jubileum hut, built only a few years ago, and the hut furthest away is the old hut; the fourth building is the woodshed/toilet.
On day 4, our friends headed towards Pältsa hytte in Sweden while we walked through Rostadalen back to our car that we had left there 4 days earlier. We had a look at the river on our way down, but there is a lot of white water, more difficult than we are able to packraft at the moment.
