Backpacking Kungsleden

If there is such a thing as a backpacker’s paradise then look no further than the Kungsleden, Sweden’s Royal Trail above the Arctic Circle near the border of Norway. If you can hike just one section of the 240-mile long trail, start with the world-class hike between Nikkaluokta and Abisko. Imagine wide Arctic valleys, stunning northern lights, reindeer, and, if you go in September, incredible fall colors covering the landscape. The 80-mile hike from Nikkaluokta to Abisko can work for all skill levels, from the beginning hiker with moderate fitness to the experienced mountain climber seeking high adventure. You can pack ultralight and stay in the huts along the way, or you can backpack and camp where you like and explore the depths of this beautiful wilderness area…
