Join this tour to learn the skills needed to head out on a hike in the Swedish mountains.
Have you been dreaming about hiking in the Swedish mountains and sleeping in a remote mountain hut? Look no further! This is a perfect introduction to trekking in Swedish Lapland. Together with a guide and a small group of other hikers you will walk 15 km south along the Kungsleden trail, starting in Abisko. After the first day of hiking you will reach the Abiskojaure mountain huts, where you will spend the next two nights. During your time there you will learn how to navigate with a map and compass, pros and cons with different kinds of equipment, what to think about when crossing a river and much more. After this tour you will be equipped with the knowledge needed to head out on longer hikes in the Swedish mountains.
