A yogic trek along the King’s trail.

Far away from stress of modern life we welcome you to a week of pure natural mental rest. The hike takes you on a unique mountain journey along the King’s trail where we live simply and stay in cozy mountain huts. Together we experience the recovering power of yoga and meditation. Hike through a varied and landscape with vast tundra and pristine virgin birch forest and climb Skierfe, a sacred cliff with a 700-meter vertical drop down into the turquoise water of the Rapa river.

This part of the King’s trail follows the eastern border of Sarek National Park, part of the World Heritage Site Laponia. The Sami people and their reindeers have traveled through those valleys for thousands of years leaving few visible traces. They have a strong relationship to nature and treat the earth with respect. We only borrow the land from future generations and we should always give it back in the same conditions as we found it.

This hike is for you who are looking for a yogic experience combined with the healing power of hiking. You should be able to hike between 10–20 kilometer per day in terrain with moderate differences in altitude and with a backpack of around 10–12 kg. You need no earlier experience from either yoga nor meditation. All the classes can be adjusted to your level.

On skis through Sarek National Park

Picture yourself on a pair of skis, with nothing but mountains and snow as far as the eye can see. But a direction, a goal somewhere behind all those mountains. Hear mountain guide Mirja, describe...
