Short but beautiful trail with a small river going through it. Perfect if you need some fresh air or stretch your legs. If you follow the red trail you'll find a lookout point with a nice view of the surrounding forest.

Really muddy throughout the whole trail and flooded at one small part near the northernmost part of the trail. Other than that it was a nice challenge with a very beautiful and varying landscape.

Zwischen September und November ist der ganze Wanderweg ab dem Moor- und Sumpfgebiet als Moderat bis schwierig einzustufen ist. Wer schonmal Mudmaster mitgemacht hat wird wissen was ich meine ;-)

An easy cruise in the rolling hills of Brösarps backar... then a sandy beach walk to Vitemölla. Followed the road to Kivik. A nice walk.

This trail is as diverse as it gets: from the feel of ancient magical forests to mystical swamps to sandy beaches to climbing over rocks and being surprised by the stunning views on top of the mountains. It’s all there! You can pitch your tent in the designated areas if you want and wander around for days. Around the hotspots (slåttdalsskrevan and -berget) it can be a bit crowded, so make sure you arrive there before 9am or after 5pm. The trail is quite rocky and at some points steep and can be slippery if it rains. Just walking on the paths can take much of your concentration, so don’t forget to stop occasionally and take a look around. Dogs are allowed only on leash. If your dog is not used to climbing rocks it can be that you’ll have to carry it on some points of the trail. Same for children (except for the on leash part ;-) ) You can take drinking water from the creeks that are in the park. Just make sure it comes from a smooth running creek and you’ll be fine.

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!!

Magnifique !! Tout est très bien indiqué. Nous l’avons effectué dans le sens Nikkaluokta- Abisko en 6 jours, en tente et en refuge une nuit. Attention, il peut faire froid la nuit.

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.

Walked with my two 13 year old boys. Beautiful hike through different type of nature. Very nice to walk along the river most of the time. We started at Alunbruket and walked to Vantalängan where we paused and had our lunch then we walked back. Paused at Hallamölla and dipped our feet.

DETAILS of our trek on the northern loop My sons (ages 22 and 19) and I hiked the trail July 2019. I am 51 years old. Day before the hike: Our airplane arrived in Kiruna at 11:00 am. We then took the bus to the central bus station, and walked to Stejk Street Food. We had the reindeer subs, which were wonderful. After eating, we went back to the bus station and got on the bus to Abisko (this bus is only available twice per day, so make sure that you know the schedule). We stayed at the Abisko Touristation, which is at the start of the Kungsleden. I highly recommend staying there. The cleanliness, accommodations, and convenience makes it the best place to stay before starting the trail. Day 1: We started from Abisko in the morning between 5:00 and 6:00 am, and we reached Abiskojaure around 10:30 am. The trail between Abisko and Abiskojaure (15 kilometers, 9.5 miles) is quite easy, so we felt very good. After a break, we decided to continue to Alesjaure (21 kilometers, 13 miles). We had done a lot of research, but we did not imagine the trail being covered with so many rocks. Our progress was slower because of the rocks and the times we had to remove our shoes to ford across shallow rivers. The first portion is easy, walking through birch-tree filled valleys. With various explorative detours, our distance on Day 1 was 40 kilometers, 25 miles). Day 2: We departed from Alesjaure near 7:30 am, and we witnessed one of our favorite portions of the trail from Alesjaure to Tjaktja (12 kilometers, 7.5 miles). We will never forget our mid-morning snack as we sat on boulders surrounded by mountains, valleys, rivers, etc. Beautiful! We had a late lunch at Tjakta, and then walked to Salka (12 kilometers, 7.5 miles). This part of the trail had the most rocks of any other portion. It was during this part of the trail that we often said, "How is this considered a trail?" But, like all the other parts of the trail, it was filled with breathtaking views. We actually hiked through snow for about 200 meters. Because of all the zig-zaging between rocks/boulders, my pedometer registered at 34 kilometers, 21 miles for the day. We pitched our tent next to a river and had a great night of sleep. Day 3: We departed from Salka early in the morning, arriving at Singi for a late lunch break (12 kilometers, 7.5 miles). The first part of that leg of the trail was easy and majestic. Then, rocks again :-). From Singi to Kebnakaise (14 kilometers, 9 miles) began with a lot of rocks and elevation. Then it involves a lot of up and down hills on the rock-covered trail. The end of that part of the trail includes a beautiful valley, more beautiful rapids, bridges, and trees (for the first time in days). Tenting is free near the Kebnakaise touristation, as long as you stay outside of the immediate location of the buildings. We found a beautiful campsite surounded by birch trees. Once again, due to all the zig-zagging through rocks and boulders, my pedometer registered more than the actual distance (36 kilometers, 22.5 miles). Day 4: After three grueling days, we were looking forward to our shortest walk. From Kebnekaise to Nikkaluokta is 19 kilometers, 12 miles, and it is a beautiful trek. We observed that a lot of people simply hike from Nikkaluokta to Kebnekaise and back. Because Kebnekaise has a restaurant and other accommodations, this seems like a nice shorter hike (or one can take the helicopter between them for a high price). The walk was scenic and easy. We were amused that the two ends of the Abisko-Nikkaluokta are the easiest parts of the trail, giving some hikers a false sense of what is to come :-). When we arrived in Nikkaluokta, crossing the finish line was a wonderful experience. We ate, rested, and waited about 4 hours for the next bus to Kiruna. Having cell phone coverage was nice, because I was able to reserve a room in a hotel in Kiruna. By the way, the Scandic is a great hotel in Kiruna, and it has a wonderful breakfast buffet. OTHER PRACTICAL DETAILS The mosquitoes are overwhelming, so bring a lot of repellent. We used deet wipes, which worked well, but we had to wipe a number of times each day. We even had to wipe on our shirts and hats, because the mosquitoes would bite through them. The worst portion of the trail for mosquitoes was between Abiskojaure and Alesjaure. The huts can be expensive if you have multiple hikers, but they seem to be a popular option for many people. The best equipment I had with me was trekking poles. Between all the rocks, thin boards, etc. it was a miracle that I didn't fall at all. I'm not sure if I'd recommend hiking the trail in 3.5 days, but it is an experience that my sons and I will cherish for the rest or our lives.
