A classic hut-to-hut Nordic ski tour inside the Arctic Circle in North Sweden
This Arctic winter wonderland adventure ski holiday will see you ski touring Nordic style along the famous King's Trail/Kungsleden of Sweden. With the winter sun resting on the horizon, the Arctic landscapes of northern Sweden, featuring majestic peaks and frozen waterfalls, are bathed in an ethereal light. Our fabulous ski touring holiday through this winter wonderland begins with 2 nights in Abisko - perhaps the best place in the world to experience the stunning Northern Lights. Then, after a day to hone your Nordic Skiing technique, we ski off into the wilderness, skiing across dramatic valleys and glorious viewpoint passes, as we follow the route of the King's Trail/Kungsleden. Snowmobiles will carry the group's equipment, so you'll only need to ski with a light back pack each day. We overnight in remote mountain huts, some of which have washrooms and wood fired saunas; the perfect place to relax after a full day cross country skiing in the cold, crisp air. Finally, from the Kebnekaise Mountain Station, beneath the highest peak in Sweden, we use snowmobiles to return to the roadhead. A memorable end to a fantastic ski touring holiday. Skiing the Kungsleden Trail demands a good level of fitness and, though cross-country ski experience is not essential, you need to have mastered the basics of down hill skiing.
