The Kings Trail – Hiking Swedish Lapland
COVID 19 update 23/04/2020
The Kings Trail is currently open to hikers and Sweden is accepting travellers from the UK and EU. I am keeping an eye on the situation and hopefully, we will be able to travel from the UK by then without self-isolation on return. I will update the info when I know more.
In the far North of Sweden lies one of Europe’s most wild and remote Treks, ‘Kungsleden’ or Kings Trail, situated 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle deep in Swedish Lapland.
Starting at the Abisko Mountain Station this unspoiled diverse and dramatic trek in this arctic wilderness takes us through a land of flower carpeted birch forest, snow-capped mountain fells, high rocky passes, lakes, and spectacular glacial valleys where the indigenous Sami people tend their herds of reindeer.
We traverse through ever-changing landscapes, to the commanding viewpoint of the Tjäktja Pass (1100m) and the impressive waterfalls of the Tj’ktajakka Val then hike to the Kebnekaise Mountain Station in Laddjuvaggi Val where we climb a nearby mountain with a spectacular panorama over the surrounding countryside, before trekking out to Nikkaloukta and our bus to Kiruna.
