Time and Path:
Easiest access is by train from Narvik, about half an hour, to the roadless station Katterat. From Katterat is about 12 km, 3-4 hour easy hike, mostly on construction roads. We left Katterat station at 2 pm walking towards Hunddalshytta, a small cabin with 14 beds in the middle of nowhere. The path is almost totally flat, with only some not really challenging uphill; because of this is better to go with snowshoes or crosscoutry skis. I went with Alpine skis but is not the best solution. After walking on this really visible path for 3 hours we reached our destination. We came back on the same path.
