Kungsleden: Trekking Winter (Travel Journal)

Day 14

Our Kungsleden trip is going to get to an end…

Therefore we are having a proper Swedish lunch. There are reindeer, moose, and Köttbullar (our favorite: moose). Totally satisfied and somewhat wistfully we enter the bus to Kiruna. On the way, we see innumerable small houses, which stand out as colorful from the snow. Sweden – as from the travel catalog! But that is not all: on the roadside are moose! For a moment I feel sorry for my lunch order… sorry, moose! Hope it was not a buddy of you!

We do not see much of Kiruna. The bus takes us directly to the station, from where we take the night train back to Stockholm.

In Stockholm, we spend another night at the airport before continuing to Berlin.

We are quite tired by the efforts and impressions of our Kungsleden journey. But at one point, however, we all agree:

It was worth it and we will definitely come back!

    Hey guys,
    some friends and I want to do a similar trip. We have a few questions as it is kind of hard to find information online. Did you bring avalanche safety equipment? How many kilometers did you walk a day? And are there huts between Abiskojaure & Alesjaure?
    Thanks for your help!!

      Hey Vera, on this route you don’t need to take avalanche protection. But of course it depends on the tour you want to do.
      Between Abiskojaure & Alesjaure there is a basic hut (a hut with stove and toilet, nothing else). We have marked it on the map and also in the gpx data. If you have more questions or want to discuss your final route in detail, let me know. I’ll be happy to help. All the best Christian
