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

      Abisko Nationalpark 4 hours ago

      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.

    • Are there day trails in Abisko National Park

      Abisko Nationalpark Apr 21, 2014 at 4:20 PM

      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?

    • Racism problems for traveler

      Sweden Apr 14, 2014 at 11:11 AM

      Hi
      I'm from UAE, Abudhabi
      I like traveling and meet new friends from the world
      My question is about problems which might Arab tourist face in Sweden. since
      Unfortunately, I read in some of the Tourism Forums that in some cities, such as Malmo and Stockholm Sweden, there are some Arab immigrants or dark-skinned who they cause problems, So they are hated by the local population.
      For the same reason two years ago, I faced problems of racism in Germany when I went there for Tourism and some have thought that I'm from the Kurdish population, who live in Berlin and have a bad reputation.
      So, is there big cities in sweden that have a small percentage of immigrants and racism are nonexistent and where residents are friendly and like to socialize with the tourists?

      Northern Lights in Umeå

      Umeå Jan 28, 2014 at 6:24 AM

      Dear all,

      I am just back from Tromsø, which was amasing with its scenery and polar landscapes. Unfortunately, didn't see the Northern lights but that's another occassion to go up in the far north.

      I was thinking of Umeå this time, going in March. Do you think its a good period or it might be a bit late then. How is it in terms of weather. To see the lights you need clear sky and low temperatures, so how is Umeå in this regard? Please recommend any easily accessible point to Umeå and feel free to share your experience there - local people's advice is most welcome.

    • australians coming to sweden, wanting to ski artic circle

      Hemavan Jul 13, 2004 at 3:02 AM

      hi we are a couple of australians who are coming to sweden at the end of the year. We would like to do some downhill skiing in or close to the arctic circle, but don't know if the ski resorts will be open due to the lack of sunlight. We would like to ski there in the 1st or 2nd week of January 2005. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could tell us which resorts (if any) are open. If they use lights to extend the skiing time and what sort of snow we could expect (hopefully lots of powder). Any other information that you feel could be usefull would also be appreciated. thanks dan and kim (see ya on the slopes)
