A selection of great hiking experiences in Swedish
Lapland. Ranging from the very comfortable and easy, to the more
VALLEY and PADJELANTA
Tarra Valley has stupendous amounts of flowers and among the biggest
populations of bear, lynx and wolverine in Sweden. But these animals
are very shy and chances of actually seeing one are very slim. Padjelanta
consists of dry, grassy small hills and numerous small lakes above
the tree line. Good possibilities to spot arctic species of birds
• THE KINGS TRAIL
This is the most popular hiking route in Swedish Lapland. Except
for the beginning, this whole trip is done above the tree line.
Even down in the valleys you will walk on arctic grassy plains. At
the end of this hike you have the possibility to climb the highest
peak in Sweden, Kebnekaise.
Are you looking for something extraordinary? An even deeper experience
of nature than with the other trips? Sarek National park could then
be the choice for you. But it comes with a price. There are no prepared
trails or cabins to sleep in. You need to carry everything with you
and sleep in a tent.
This is the easiest and cutest of them all. You can stay
in private rooms at Saltoluokta Mountain Lodge and spend the days
making day trips in the surrounding area. With its easy to
hike terrain coupled with beautiful autumn colors and scenery, this
is a very comfortable way to get a taste of the mountains in Swedish
