My wife and I completed the 2019 classic this past week. Such an incredible experience the views are beautiful. Water is plentiful and although folks drink directly from the streams I still recommend filtering. We saw several dead mice along the trail and near water so just be safe!

It was an amazing 6-day-trek ! Landscapes are very beautiful and you can enjoy lots of wildlife such as reindeers, lots of birds and of course mosquitoes!! We slept in a tent and it was really convenient if you’re not scared or the weight to carry! Water from rivers and lake is drinkable. Hikes are not that difficult but can be quite long. Just to it!! It’s incredible!!

Magnificent !! Everything is very well indicated. We did it in the direction Nikkaluokta- Abisko in 6 days, tent and shelter one night. Be careful, it can be cold at night.

The view up at Aurora station is beautiful! We took a slightly different route though - the red route indicated from the Abisko tourist station. If you take this route, you walk along a stream with several waterfalls, which is a nice sight. The trail gets quite steep towards the end, but well worth the effort. If you make it to the aurora station and still have some energy, then keep following the red trail to reach the Njulla mountain top (+-30min up) for an amazing 360 panorama view.

One of the best multi day hikes in my life. Especially after Singhi towards vakkatovare - most people go east to kebnekaise, making the first part quite busy and the second part wonderfully quiet.

Definitely the most memorable trail I've ever hiked. I went in september 2017 with 3 friends. We had 2 tents and went from Abisko to Nikkaluokta. We were so lucky that we caught the magical northern lights not one, not two but three nights! I will never forget this. This is a must do if you're looking for an unforgettable adventure

had a wonderfull time on this trail. i only did the first part on 10km but it's really nice. did in may, it seems to be the best. not to much snow but still a little. only thing : the trail is not so well indicated even if it's not hard. ro found your way.

we start in Abisko, we trek for a week about 100 km. Very nice few people, you can sleep in the huts or camp. Rich of water.

The Kungsleden trail is the most beautiful and exciting hike I've ever done. The nature is very scandinavian and breathtaking. Wide horizons, turquoise lakes, a lot of reindeer, and cozy refuges with kind staff made this trip special. I did the part from Abisko to Nikkaluoakta in 2016. It was about 100km in 6 days. The weather was mild and beautiful. I recommend taking 7-8 days for relaxed hiking. Theres no need for heavy backpacks as food can be bought and prepared cheaply in the refuges, and water can be drunk from most lakes and streams.

I only did about ten miles. Very nice path. Many backpackers from all over Europe.

Hiked this trail in 2018 as organized by Fjallraven, but the whole trail is public so can be hiked outside of the organization as well. 2/3 of the trail (the north-south section) is part of the much larger 'Kingstrail' of Lapland Sweden (Kungsleden in Swedish and Alltrails has a separate trail for that one) and the whole are is supported by mountain cabins (called SFT stations) roughly every 15-20km or so. The event is walked every year in August and includes 2000 participants spread over 3 start days (8 start groups) and a lot of requests are made about distances, elevations etc so this trail really will help the community prepare for the event. The hike itself is absolutely stunning, nature is wild and free here and the hills and low mountains provide for beautiful scenery. It is rough terrain and the trail is well marked, but often has a lot of rocks jutting out of the dirt/mud, so walking sticks are highly recommended. Swampy areas are traversed on wooden walkways and larger streams and rivers are crossed on metal bridges. Although participants are not allowed to use the cabins, of course if you go by yourself and ditch the camping, you can hike from cabin to cabin and sleep in them. Best be sure to make reservations at the SFT in advance though. Camping itself is great though and apart from a small section at Abisko National Park, the entire area allows for setting up camp wherever you wish. Water is not a problem since the water streams are plentiful and clean. Many don't even use filter given how clean the water is, although we did always use a lifestraw bottle just to be sure.

Hello. The kungsleden is a nice easy walk from Abisko to Hemavan. Most people walk only the first 100 km in the North. I have walked the trail from South to North in 17 days, including 1 rest day. About 450 kilometers, started on June 30, 2018. The great thing is the midnight sun, it is the end of June, 24 hour daylight. The route is well marked and there are many mountain huts so you can walk without a tent. I have slept most nights in my tent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sktqMYKM5G8&t=175s
