On this tour our guides will take you along the Eastern Route ("östra leden") which is a scenic and varied hike that will take you over streams, glaciers and mountainsides. The destination is the southern summit of Kebnekaise, the highest mountain in Sweden.
The Eastern route is a long trek that takes roughly 10 hours to complete depending on how the conditions are. It's a long and tiring climb, but when you get to the top you are rewarded with an amazing view, from the summit you can see roughly 10% of Sweden! The hike will include walking over one of the glaciers and a bit of rock climbing, neither of those are particularly difficult but every participant will be equipped with harnesses and carabiners. If the guides decide during the tour that the conditions are dangerous the tour will be canceled. The safety of our guests is our main consideration.
