Spring-winter in Swedish Lapland is something else. And when it arrives, the mountain cabins along the King’s Trail opens up.
The 110 km-long route between Abisko and Nikkaluokta is one of the best known and most popular trails in Sweden, both in summer and winter. Many skiers start their journey at STF Abisko Mountain Station, but it is equally rewarding to do the opposite and start the adventure in Nikkaluokta.
Whichever direction you choose, you will experience a magnificent and wild mountain landscape in the most high-alpine area of the King’s Trail – at the Tjäktja Pass, you pass the trail’s highest point, at 1,150 metres above sea level. For the most part, however, the trail goes around the mountains rather than over them, and there is only a little climbing involved.
