Hiking and Trekking Featured in
Due to Sweden's mild temperatures and rich variety of landscapes, no hiker will feel disappointed. Typically, the north of Sweden is associated with hiking. The Royal Trail, Sweden's most famous trail of 440 km, is located above the Arctic Circle and passes Anisko and Nikkaluokta on its route. Another great one, the Padjelanta Trail, is located between the villages of Kvikkjokk and Ritsem in the far northwest and stretches for 150 km. The Höga Kusten is the only long distance trail that is situated on land that is still rising. Interestingly, since the Ice Age the area level has risen 300 metres! This is also the trail that connects the south and north of the country, from Hornöberget to Örnsköldsvik. The southernmost trail is Skåneleden, stretching for approximately 1000 km. It is a beautiful track that suggests that not only the North is a hiking paradise.
