THIS IS BEING POSTPONED TO 2022 DUE TO COVID 19. DETAILS TO BE PROVIDED AROUND CHRISTMAN 2021 BUT PLEASE CONFIRM YOUR INTEREST.
ORIGINAL PLAN FOR 2020
Two days holiday required -- generally rather flat except for a 14km section. Temperature teens or 20s during the day and single figures at night
Experience very long summer's days and lots of hiking on this 4 day intensive hiking trail.
Departing 23 July from London to Stockholm with an overnight in Stockholm to get the Norwegian flight on the 24 July DY[masked] followed by the Bus 91 at 14.15 from Kiruna Airport to Abisko for the start of the hike.
The hike will start at the Turiststation at 16.00 with a 15 km hike to the Abiskojaure cabin (about 450SEK (£40 per person per night)).
The following day walking to we will walk to Alesjaure via Unna Allakas and spend the night in the Alejaure cabin (20+14km). Cost of cabin about £40 per person per night. Alternatively the 14km stretch could be done the following day.
On the Sunday we will return to Abiskojaure via the direct route along part of the famous Kungsleden trail (21km) and spend the night at the cabin there (£40).
We will return to the Tourist Station in Abisko 15km for the 11.10 bus to the airport and catch Norwegian DY[masked] July[masked] and return to London later in the evening.
Flights Norwegian from Stockholm Arlanda to Kiruna (return) currently cost £83 and will become very expensive. There are many options for London - Stockholm.
All cabins have a sauna to chill after the walk.
I got my flights so the trip will be going ahead.
Note that there is a possibility to camp rather than stay in cabins but the weight of the tent and equipment adds weight to the backpack and my idea was to travel very light (hand luggage only) due to the long distance to be covered on the second day.
Everyone will be responsible for his/her own bookings and flights and therefore will be no administration fee.
Please get in touch for further details.
