I feel like the banner crop is completly destroying the image. The Fjäll landscape (what you see in the foreground) is not really visible that much anymore, and at this point I'd almost rather take the banner out completely and replace it with the photo in normal thumbnail mode. --Church of emacs (talk) 16:42, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
- Hello Church of emacs, I quite agree the photo is not very suitable for a banner. Please go ahead and move it down to the article. Any suggestions for a photo that would be suitable for cropping as a banner? Thanks! --Danapit (talk) 17:34, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
The reader is warned that one needs to be experienced and have a "professional" guidebook (although the route otherwise suits beginners), or extremely experienced if going in winter. I wonder, is the trail in some way more difficult than what you would expect in the Nordic wilderness?
My impression from reading the article is that Padjelantaleden is a popular and well marked trail with huts not too far from each other, with no difficult climbs. The Laponia page also describes it as easy ("lätt"), with no difficult fords. This does indeed not mean you should go unprepared, but rather that you should prepare as for any long wilderness hike in Lapland.

There is now a recommendation in Understand to get a guide book. Usually our aim is to provide all necessary information in our own guide, and links to competing guides is to be avoided.
For the benefit of the traveller – and for those trying to improve this guide – I think we should leave the link in until we have covered the essentials ourselves (and then perhaps move it to this talk page). We should try to get that essential information included as soon as possible.
As I wrote above in #Difficulty, it doesn't seem that this itinerary is exceptionally demanding, so anybody who can be advised to hike it independently should be fine having read Hiking in the Nordic countries and got a good map, without any guidebook, only this article is improved to earning usable status.

- I now removed the passage: "Consulting a guide book is wise; one has been published in 2020 by Cody Duncan on his website, Distant North." The article is usable status, and although it could be more thorough, especially on landscapes, terrain and sights en route, I think the essentials are covered. –LPfi (talk) 08:25, 30 January 2022 (UTC)
