In 2018, Emelie Forsberg went back to her homeland to attempt a Fastest Known Time (FKT) in the Kungsleden Trail, a hiking trail in the Swedish Lapland that boasts spectacular wilderness and is usually crossed by hikers in no less than 15 days. She completed the 450km trail in 4 days and 21 hours, beating the current FKT, held since 2017.
The King’s Trail has something for everyone
This is a good ‘Walkumentary’ made by a Elin Nordlander who did the trail with her boyfriend and dog.
This is a full lenght documentary I made from when me and my boyfriend thru hiked Kungsleden (The King´s trail). The trail stretches from Abisko in the Arctic Lapland, Sweden, to Hemavan, 430km south of Abisko. It has all you need to know about Kungsleden. This is a must do hike before you die! It is one of the most beautiful places in the world and should be on everybody’s bucketlist. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Hiking along the Kungsleden, the Swedish Royal Trail as it is called in English, has become increasingly popular. There is a multitude of guidebooks as well as online information for this hike. However, doing the same stretch on skis in wintertime is still much more of a solitary experience. As far as we know, there is no guidebook available for the Kungsleden in winter. To close this gap a tiny bit, we have gathered some information that we learned during our trip in 2018.
