Description fournie par l'éditeur :
Sweden's most famous long-distance trail, the Kungsleden (King's Trail) traverses the land of the Sami people and the midnight sun, stretching 460km between Abisko and Hemavan. The fully waymarked trail is comprised of five continuous and distinct sections: these can be walked individually or a thru-hike will take around a month. The guide also includes the popular Abisko to Nikkaluokta circuit, which can be completed in a week, and an ascent of Kebnekaise, Sweden's highest peak at 2098m.

 In addition to clear route description and mapping, you'll find a wealth of practical advice covering accommodation and facilities, equipment and resupply and detailed notes on how to get to and from the section start and finish-points. A Swedish and Fell Sami glossary can be found in the appendix. Although there are plentiful opportunities for wild camping, three of the five trail sections are equipped with huts (many including a shop and a sauna) making them easily accessible to all. The remaining two sections have a more remote feel that will appeal to those intent on finding some solitude. To add further colour, there are seven mandatory lake crossings on the trail with the option of rowing or using the motorised service: full details are provided in the text.

The Kungsleden passes through five national parks, including Sarek. Other highlights include the striking Tjaktjavagge glacial valley and the famous hay meadows of Aktse, perfectly framed by the azure Lajtavrre delta and the sheer chiselled face of Skierrffe. Around half the route lies within the Arctic Circle showcasing an ever-changing landscape of snowy mountains, deep glacial valleys, open fell, expansive lakes and verdant forest.
