    • Travel from Abisko to Nikkaluokta

      Abisko Nationalpark Jul 25, 2014 at 1:47 AM

      Hi, first time posting, so hope someone can help...

      We are getting a hire car from Stockholm airport and driving up to Nikkaluokta and trekking from there to Abisko along that stretch of the Kungsleden. As we are planning to leave the hire car in Nikkaluokta during our trek, we need a way of getting back to Nikkaluokta from Abisko after the trek.

      So my question is this, does anyone know if there is a way of getting directly to Abisko from Nikkaluokta?

      I've heard about a bus that runs once a day between the two, but haven't been able to find any info about it.

      Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Can you recommend a launderette where we can get a load of washing done, please? Preferably full service, but we can do our own if needed.

    • Bringing a wood burning stove?

      Abisko Nationalpark May 13, 2014 at 7:39 PM

      Hey guys.

      I'm planning a trip to Kungsleden. My plan is to walk the whole trail during june. Normally when I hike, I bring a lightweight wood burning stove and collect fuel before I reach camp.
      I've been reading about the area, and there is often mention of birch forrest and vegetation in the valleys. Now I'm wondering if it will be possible to use my wood burning stove on this trail, or I should rely solely on my backup gas stove? Will I get close to forrest or other kinds of fuel every day or every other day? I'm planning on averaging 20 km a day.

      Thanks

    • Kungsleden trail between May 18th to May 24th, 2014

      Abisko Nationalpark Apr 23, 2014 at 11:55 PM

      My wife and I are experienced backpacker. We are planning a week long backpacking trip to hike Kungsleden trail between the north section of Abisko and Nikkaluokta. The time should be around May 18, 2014 to May 24. We will carry all the camping gears.

      I know the transportation could be a problem during that time. I would appreciate if anyone can help me with the following questions.

      1. I heard there won’t be bus between Kiruna and Nikkaluokta at that time. If our hike finishes at Nikkaluokta, is there a way we can get back to Kiruna Airport?

      2. Is there any bus between Kiruna and Abisko during that time? Schedule?

      3. Is there any taxi between Kiruna and Nikkaluokta? How about the cost?

      4. Do you think if it makes sense to ride a taxi from Kiruna to Nikkaluokta, then hike north to Abisko, then ride a bus (see question #2) to Kiruna airport?

      5. If we want to hike Kebnekaise, what will be the condition during that time.

      6. If we want to hike Kebnekaise, I assume I have to bring microspike as the hut will be closed at that time and I won't be able to rent crampon? Are snowshoes necessary?

      Thank you very much and I appreciate your help.

      I am going to Sweden in July this year and unfortunately don't have time to walk the whole Kungsleden walk. It sounds an amazing area though so would like to go there for at least 2 or 3 days. Are there any day walks in the park that give a good idea of the character/flora/fauna that make a long train trip from Stockholm worthwhile?

      Hi, my wife and i will visit the Kiruna region in March 2014 and will hire a car to get around

      Therefore rather than spend money on a northern lights tour, is it possible to just drive and find a place to view the lights (obviously away from city lights)?

      Can anyone recommend a good location for this?

    • Things to do in Kiruna

      Kiruna Nov 21, 2013 at 4:14 PM

      Hi
      I want to visit Northern Sweden to see the Northern Lights in late Feb/early Mar 2014. I had intended spending 10 days to try to ensure that I had a good chance of seeing at least one good display. Is spending 10 days to much?
      I need to find something to do during the days. I have been looking at the prices of tours in Kiruna and they appear to be very expensive. I maybe able to take one tour. Are there other activities that can be done alone and safely e.g. hiking, shoe-shoeing? Is it possible to jump on some form of public transport and go somewhere just for the ride and scenery?
      Are there tour companies that I should steer clear of?
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks.

      Chasing the northern lights on our own

      Kiruna Oct 2, 2013 at 1:22 AM

      My family and I will be in Kiruna, hotel Scandic, from Dec 30th until Jan 3rd. We have already planned a night out on dogsled on the 30th and New Year's Eve dinner in Camp Ripan. Fot the remainder 2 nights we plan on going further to Abisko and/or around Kiruna and try to chase the lights on our own. I have some questions, though.
      1. is the road to Abisko safe for inexperienced snow driving people?Are there gritters clearing the road frequently? Driving is what scares me the most. Had a scary experience once nearTromso, so I figure roads may be similar here (narrow...)
      2. are there any favorite dark enough spots to park a car safely and put the tripod and camera? Can anyone point out a few? We considered taking a guided northern lights tour to shoot some pictures, but I find them a bit overpriced for something that we probably will be able to do on our own, with good guidance from people here at VT.
      3. Can we ride the chairlift at Abisko without joining a visit to the Sky Station, which is already fully booked for our dates? Do we have to buy chairlift tickets in advance or just show up and buy them on the spot?
      4. We shall expect dark the whole 24 hours of a day, on the given dates, correct?
      Thanks in advance for your guidance.
