This route is a portion of the Kings Trail which runs for 270 miles between Abisko and Hemavan. The trail includes plank walkways covering swampy or rocky ground, but other sections further from the trailheads are eroded and rocky, increasing the difficulty of hiking some parts of the trail.

You do not need to take public transport because all stops are relatively close.

Length: 69.9 mi • Est. Multi-day
Fjällräven Classis is an annual trek in Sweden. The trail winds through 2 valleys of which the longest section is part of the famous Kingstrail / Kungsleden of northern Sweden. The event is walked every year in August and includes 2000 participants spread over 3 start days (8 start groups). The whole trail is public so can be hiked outside of the event 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 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. Show more
