  • The king of all trails

    The King's Trail runs through Sweden's most beautiful mountain scenery and provides more than 400 kilometres' worth of hiking adventure for the first-time hiker as well as the truly experienced mountain veteran. It is one of the world's most famous hiking trails, and the stage between Abisko and Nikkaluokta is the most-travelled trail in all of Sweden.

  • Driving on ice

    On lake Uddjaur in Arjeplog, is where you'll find one of the coolest driving schools in the world: Lapland Ice Driving. How it came to be is a cold and actually quite a long story.

  • A frozen icon

    In the village of Jukkasjärvi, outside Kiruna, lies the original ICEHOTEL. Every year, since 1989, it has been reincarnated in a new rendition and there’s always more to come. From the beginning this was kind of a crazy idea in the winter, nowadays it’s as crazy all year round.

  • The big closing party

    It's all about turning. No jumps, no flips, no rails. Just the beautiful art of being able to turn on a snowboard. But apart from that Riks Banked Slalom is just a great happening in May.

  • A night among the trees

    Treehotel in Harads is more than just a design favourite among the treetops. Returning after a day packed full of experiences there's a treat in the form of locally produced food from Swedish Lapland waiting. It's the childhood fantasy we've all dreamed of – just in a more luxurious package.

  • Winter swimming

    Some people do it once in a lifetime. Some every week – on Sundays at lunchtime. Some do it for health reasons; some because they want to show bravery and some just because they want to win. But the only real reason you need is your own, when you step through a hole in the ice, into 0,1°C cold water.

  • Speed upon the King’s Trail

    The world's most successful trail runner, Tina Emelie Forsberg, ran the entire King's Trail in summer 2018. When others take three to four weeks to do a 'through hike', Emelie ran it in less than five days.

  • A run through magical mountains

    The helicopter takes us to the starting point, 17 kilometres out in the roadless land. The mountain terrain is magical, I cannot find a better word to describe it. Then there are sweat, pain, and doubts. Followed by laughter, pleasure, and euphoria. When it’s all over, all I can think about is: Why don’t all races take place in the mountains of Swedish Lapland?

  • An extreme race through Laponia

    Ice Ultra is a trial of strength for the hardy. 230 kilometres on foot in February, through one of Europe's perhaps most mythical mountain landscapes.

  • Kebnekaise in spring colours

    My relationship with Kebnekaise was established long before I saw her in real life. I'm a bit uncertain as to whether it's right to assign a gender to a mountain or not. But the Kebnekaise I first got to know was a woman, that’s for sure.
