hi. just wondering if a -5 sleeping bag is enough for the sarek in early september. im thinking a -10 to be sure but some views would be appreciated.
We would like to hike the kings trail. THe only problem is that we are short in time an we have only 5 or 6 days, wich will not allow us to go from abisko to nikkaluokta, then take bus from nikkaluokta to kiruna, and another bus back to abisko (where our car might be standing).
Has anyone an idea what the best possibility is to get back in Abisko in a 5 or 6 days time span?
Walking in a circle or taking a bus/taxi somewhere (and where?:))?
Thank you really much!
It will be my first time to come to Stockholm and i will stay between 16th to 24th April, can any one advise me about some interesting places to vist. I also want to see Stockholm at night.
We would like to travel from Lulea to Kvikkjokk (24.08.2013) and from Jäckvik back to Lulea (we must arrive Lulea on September 2, until the evening); what would be the best schedule with train / bus ?
hi me and my husband will be at kiruna march 21-30 first 3 days we will be driving to Luleå and taking ice breaker tour then for the remaining 5 days we can drive and do whatever we wish we want to do snowmobile safari, dog sledding , ice climbing and such and were thinking about staying around abisko park or at Björkliden (and combine a day of ski guide as well) the lodge at abisko is not available for these dates - any other recommendations for nice hotel (must have private bathroom) ? also since we will have our own car we can spend those days wherever (reasonable distance) that can offer those services and we can watch northern lights from (hopefully) - so will it be worth driving to Narvik for example? or to any other place in Norway? thanks
I can't find any information about the bus timetable in December from Kiruna to Abisko. Is there any bus service for this route? December 29, 2012: Kiruna to Abisko
I suddenly get some free time. I'm thinking to do hiking (Abisko-Kungsleden) during mid May. Please let me know the condition of the trail and weather condition: is it icy? do I need crampons? do I need ski? could i rent the ski at abisko and return it in kungsleden? how much? how cold at night? What kind of dangers during the trek? i have a tent for up to -8C. Are the mountain stations open? What are the prices at this time of year? Could you advise any alternative hikes?

Hello. Me and a friend will be in kiruna for a day and will be staying at the ice hotel. It seems that tour packages offered are quite expensive. We were thinking of going to Sámi Siida - Reindeer park and Sámi camp or the Unground mine museum. How do we travel from the hotel to these places and how far is it? We also would like to ride on snowmobile too. Is there any way we can go to these places using snowmobile? Thanks.

Hi, Please excuse me for a weird question, but is there any big(gish) department stores or such in Kiruna, where they would sell Design House Stockholm tableware? Many thanks in advance for any answer! Johanna
Hi there! I'm searching on the posibility to visit the Abisko (or Kiruna) area in February for viewing the northern lights, without spending a fortune! (although I understand it mustn't be so easy). The northern lights are basically my only reason to go there. After initial searching, mostly luxurious suggestions come up, like based in ice hotel, or booking expensive tours, etc, which are very nice but unfortunately over my limits. I was wondering for the practical side of D-I-Y, like arriving by train from Stockholm to Abisko, or by flight to Kiruna and then train/bus to Abisko, staying in a hostel kind of acommodation (perhaps in a station which is in the area) and walking between the spots (hostel - viewing points - restaurants etc). If of course all these are really in easy access of each other and the train station, in winter. If anybody has experiences - ideas- alternatives about how to make it, would be absolutely great! many thanks Nikos
I'll be arriving on Stockholm after 18th Jan. and planning to stay there till 13th of Feb! during my time in sweden, I'm planning to visit Kiruna! for much about 3days or so.. I'll be thrilled to see the northern lights too, if the weather works fine enough. one problem is that, I've never been to any places that's colder than -6 degrees. (Celsius) so I'm guessing my trip to Europe will be extremely harsh. especially in Kiruna! Can any of you guys leave a short comments about the clothing? Merry Christmas!
I would like to watch birds in Abisko in June. I have heard of the mosquitos, is this a problem in early June (around the 5th)or rather later? What about early August? Thank you for your answers.
My family of 5 is planning to visit Abisko - Kiruna ICE Hotel followed by Ivalo Kakslauttanen in December. I wonder whether any one is familiar with those places and can recommend an agent that can provide us: 1. guided tour at Abisko and Kiruna, 2. Coach Transfer from Kiruna to Abisko then to ICE HOTEL and then to Ivalo Kakslautanen We are considering our accommodations at Abisko Mountain Lodge, ICE Hotel and Kakslautanen. Any one has any adverse experiences? We were advised to book accommodations first since these are special accommodations which availability is running out fast for a big group of 5 like us. We will arrive in Kiruna airport from London in December. Love to hear from any one in the forum.

My wife is traveling from Arvidsjuar to Lulea on Sunday August 29. Her travel agent found her a bus leaving Arvidsjuar at 15:30. She could not tell from the website if that bus runs on Sunday. Does it? If so does she need to make some sort of advance reservation?
