The Kungsleden

  • Discovering Europe’s last great wilderness on Sweden’s ‘King of Trails'.
  • Hiking through remote Arctic Circle landscapes of alpine forests and glacial valleys.
  • Relaxing in saunas as you enjoy the olde-worlde charm of mountain cabins.
  • Getting to know the Sami people; traditional reindeer herders.
  • A plethora of wildlife, including the elk, golden eagle and ptarmigan.
Trek the northernmost section of Sweden’s top distance trail, the 100-year old Kungsleden (King’s Trail). The vast Arctic Circle landscape in this part of Swedish Lapland is filled with contrasts. Birch forests filled with flowers, to dramatic mountain passes with lunar-like terrain, to lush grass meadows, the scenery will have you gasping at every turn! You will hike between simple and traditional mountain cabins in spectacular settings. You will carry your own pack and a small supply of provisions. The walking is fairly easy, and the path easy to follow, whilst still giving you that true mountain experience. Dependent on when you travel, you also may experience either the midnight sun (Jun-Jul) or the northern lights (late Aug-Sept). The Kungsleden has been listed as one of the "World's Best Hikes" by National Geographic so it is one that is an essential to tick off the list!
