We had been looking forward to this hike for some time and had done a lot of research. None of which prepared us for the worst snow conditions in 70 years. Our plan was to hike from Abisko to Kvikkjokk. unfortunately because of the heavy...More

Abisko to Kebnekaise. What an adventure! Fantastic back to basics hike. Not for those with dodgy knees or hips(too many stones/rocks). Challenging but manageable. Superb huts, hosts and saunas. Lots of work - chopping, sawing wood m, collecting water. But amazing scenery and the opportunity...More

Taking the Fjallraven Classic hike from Nikkaluotka to Abisko this past fall was an absolute mesmerizing hike for all calibers of hikers. It has its fair share of challenges to overcome, whether it be the constant changing valley weather, to the aggressively rocky terrain as...More

I walked the first section of the Kungsleden from Abisko to Nikkaluokta, staying in STF huts. This is a superb walk. Not too physically demanding but not a doddle either. Great scenery, with huge mountains, reindeer and majestic passes. The daily distances range from 12...More

We hiked the northernmost section of the Kungsleden in June 2016 (Abisko-Kebnekaise). The hiking was fantastic with beautiful scenery every day. The mountains of the Swedish north are so remote that you can easily forget your day to day life. The STF huts are excellent...More

Probably best to do the Abisko-Nikkaluokta part.. About 1 week is a good pace to do it without pushing too hard. (it can be done in 5 days). Or you can continue to Vakkotavare and beyond. Check out the STF website for maps... More
