Highlights

  • Reach some of the most remote places on Earth.

  • Join a flexible program with exciting add-ons.

Description

Join this amazing hike in one of the most pristine areas of Sweden. Follow the King’s trail, a famous and historic path that covers 440 kilometers of fantastic wilderness.

There are many reasons why the King’s Trail is one of the most famous and classic routes in Sweden. Not only is it beautiful, but it is also ideal for those who are not exceptionally fit. However, although it is not particularly difficult, participants must at least have some previous hiking experience.

Our hiking adventure begins in Abisko and ends in Nikkaluokta.  During our journey, we’ll discover different terrains and spectacular landscapes. We will camp in the wilderness and this will give us the chance to connect with nature. Furthermore, it will grant us flexibility in terms of the hiking distance we cover each day. 

An optional add-on to your program includes hiking to the Kebnekaise summit! At 2,097 m (6,880 ft), it is Sweden’s highest mountain. Another option, if you prefer a shorter program, is to join a 6-day tour with helicopter transfer from Abisko to Alesjaure.  Whichever your preference, you can be sure that this will be an unforgettable experience in an awe-inspiring place!

So, are you ready for an exciting adventure in the Swedish wilderness? Then contact me today and let me know your preferences so that we can start planning an inspiring King’s Trail hiking program. I look forward to being your guide!

About the guide

Some say they started with their outdoor adventures at a certain stage in life - I simply never stopped. A childhood spent outdoors led me to the career of guiding. 3 years of education in Vadstena with the Leadership and Outdoor program and another 1½ years to become a Wilderness and Adventure guide at Campus Åre.

Since 2013 I have been self-employed and working as a freelance mountain leader all over Scandinavia and I am happy to call it my home. I have also made sure to invest in further education such as 80 hours first aid training - Wilderness First Responder (NOLS), avalanche course PRO 2 through SVELAV and I carry the National Award for Mountain Leaders to mention a few.

On top of this, I make sure to put my skills to good use as a Chairman of the Swedish Mountain Leader Organisation, a delegate to UIMLA, and as a board member of the Mountain Safety Council of Sweden. I am also helping the Industry Organisation of Sustainable Snowmobile Tourism as an expert member in their task of building a guide training. Previous work also includes training Mountain Leaders and setting up operation guidelines and safety plans for other guiding companies.

My biggest passion is helping others access wild places and showing them the best parts of outdoor adventure. I will be happy to share my knowledge and guide you especially in the Scandinavian Mountain Range which stretches 1700 kilometers on the border between Sweden and Norway.
