Hike in the Swedish Lapland
Do you want to surprise your friends with an unusual trip this summer? Hopefully, after hearing “Sweden”, drawing three meals a day at a buffet in a three-star hotel is not the first thing that comes into your mind. After all, we invite you to go to Swedish Lapland – a natural reserve in remote Scandinavia, where the legendary trekking route “Kungsleden” (King’s Trail) runs.
Wild places, mesmerizing beauty of the tundra, midnight sun and free-walking reindeers will be the fundamental elements of our hike along the northern part of the King’s Trail, all the way from the village of Abisku to Nikkaluokta. As you can imagine, we won’t be skipping Kebnekaise Mountain (2160 m), the highest point in Sweden!
Sweden is harsh and beautiful in the summer and, even if we will have to overcome rains, steep climbs, swamps and northern winds along the way, we won’t let the heaviness of our backpacks distract us from the beauty of the Swedish landscapes and we will always enjoy warm nights in very cozy campsites.
Trekking in Sweden does not involve serious physical challenges, sharp climbs or steep descents. Comfortable sleepovers and lightweight backpacks also make transitions and recuperation easier. However, the northern weather together with several hours of trekking make the adventure not so easy, we advise you to start a moderate sports preparation for the trip a couple of weeks in advance.
Overnight stays during the trip are held in campsites in tents. Accommodation in houses is possible for a small surcharge. The campsites are fully equipped – shared kitchen and living room, a shop, and sauna. Important – there is no internet in the campsites! We will prepare food together during the trip – balanced meals specially designed for long hikes. The weather in late summer in Sweden is moderately warm, frosty nights are possible though. It is worth remembering that the weather in the north is changeable, prolonged rains might fall. We kindly ask you to bring warm and reliable protection from the north wind and rain.
