We did the part from Kvikkjokk until Nikkaluokta, and the landscapes were amazing. We've seen some people, which I find reassuring, but not too much, allowing us to enjoy the perfect silence of thoses places. Everyone in the chalets is very helpfull, and we meet some pretty nice guys. Slepping on tent is much more easier and cheaper, but in... More

I agree with the previous review about packing, if staying in the huts go light! Though I'll admit I was jealous of the beautiful places the tent campers had picked, outside of the park (near Abisko) you can set up your tent wherever you like. There were plenty of solo hikers (male and female) and the trail was busy enough... More

Hiking in Lapland? Excellent! We flew to Narvik, then took the train to Abisko. Hiked with a 45L rucksack, you DON'T need to take cutlery or cooking equipment if staying in the STF huts (get a youth hostel card to get a discount!) but you do need a sheet sleeping bag. Packing minimal is crucial; pack, remove half your stuff... More

I hiked this trail recently and enjoyed it immensely. The scenery was beautiful, stark and dramatic. The hut system is well equipped with food and sleeping accommodations. The staff are generally friendly and the occasional saunas are a wonderful treat. Make sure to enjoy the gourmet food at Saltoluokta Tourist Station. And be sure to pack light but with all... More

We took this trip in the first week of July. This is the start of the busy season, but the route is by no means overcrowded. Each day we met maybe 15 people in total over an 10 hour hiking period, and the huts were generally about half full. In terms of gear, go as light as possible. There are... More

We went on a hiking tour on northest part of Kungsleden, from Abisko in North to Singi in south. There we turned east of Kungsleden and finished in Nikkaluokta, but topped Sweden on the way, by climbing the highest peak in Sweden, Kebnekaise, 2106 m. We started 15th. August and finished 23rd of August. The weather was great, heat almost... More
