After having hiked from Abisko to Nikkiloukta a few summers ago ,we wanted to try back country skiing the same route from the 19th - 25 th March . A few days practice on icy snow around Abisko and many falls we set out for 6 days on snowshoes instead. It is done but not to recommend . Most skiers... More

Went there intending to do it on my own with nordic skis. Anyone with that idea, my one advice would be : rent a pulka (sledge). Unless you manage to pack really light, a pulka is a great option. Allows you to carry much more with less effort. Anyway, I met with guys that had pulkas and luckily they offered... More

Of course the Kungsleden is THE most famous hiking trail in Sweden. It is one of the best trails concerning services, huts & maps. The nature is fantastic. In summer the part between Nikkaluokta-Kebnekaise & Abisko can be quiet full. Than one might consider to take one of the many sideroutes in the area that are equally well marked. But... More

From Abisko followed the impressive Abeskoetnu River and on to the Alesjaure Mountain Hut. Then through the valley via the Tatja Pass upto the Salka Mountain Hut. Then a descent to the valley until Kebnekaise Mountain Station. An attempt to climb Mt Kebnekaise although we only got to the first "summit" due to the foggy weather on the day. Finally... More

Great trail, nice people. Lots of intresting facts from the people how are working at the huts. At the huts you pay a fee, but thats not much. You can camp every where.

Walked from Abisko to Nikaluokta, an amazing place! Not too tough and not busy at all. Because you are so up north, the snow starts at 800 meter already giving you the feeling you are much higher. One tip: be prepared for mosquitos!!

The Kungsleden is a world class hike in North Sweden above the arctic circle. We hiked from Abisko to Nikkaluotka which totalled 120km and took 7 days with hikes between 14 and 24 km each day with full packs. We went in the last week of June/ first week of July which is early summer season... there were almost no... More

This week I walked the kungsleden from Abisko to Vakkatovarre. I walked solo but met many great people along the way. I stayed in the huts which are simple but very well looked after and it means that you don't have to carry the weight of a tent and cooker. You can also buy all your food along the way... More

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
