More Info

Rising to 2.099 meters above sea level Kebnekaise is the highest peak in Sweden. The massif is composed of two summits, both of which are glaciated.

Climbing a single peak only takes a day, but many climbers opt to head up both summits over the course of four days. Others spend even longer and spend some time hiking the various glacial valleys found all around the massif.

Summiting the peak is relatively easy, requiring mostly hiking along with a bit of scrambling toward the end. No previous experience is required, but a relatively good level of physical fitness. Depending on the time of year, some glacier hiking may also be required.
