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.
During the summer, average daily temperatures on Kebnekaise range from 5 ºC to 10 ºC. These temperatures tend to dip as you gain elevation. Summer is also the wettest time of year, with between 100 and 150 millimeters of rain falling each month.
Any trip to Kebnekaise begins with a flight into Kiruna Airport (KRN), which can be reached directly from Stockholm and, seasonally, from Amsterdam and London. Most guides will opt to meet you here and provide transport to the start of the trip.
