Hello everyone,

A few days ago I returned from a trip about 10 days old "King's Highway" in northern Sweden. At this time, I went about 200 miles, which are half off. First, for the location and general information about the area, attach here a link to the official site of the STF he Swedish Tourism Organization responsible for maintaining the tracks and cabins. A very neat and you can book and pay in advance (discounts!) about the cabins where you plan to sleep (not to worry, the dates and the flexible and replaceable in orbit).

Don't write a story through a detailed track days, since I believe that hike is an individual experience and varies from person to person. However, little detail about an before and during track (nearly) and nature of the track and what to expect.

The track "derekh hamelekh" dominates North Sweden and starts above the Arctic circle in the town, abisco It continues South approximately 450 km to the town of maben. But one-third of the section in the middle of the track that requires accommodation equipment tent, the rest of the track is characterized by walking from cabin to cabin, broven full service host, which is responsible for the complex, a small grocery to buy food (no need to carry!), bedrooms with heating (fireplace or radiator), WC, fully equipped kitchen, gas + a home sauna (anthropological experience each and every one must himself/e). Those who still want to sleep, you can do it anywhere along the path free of charge or at a charge near an area in the cabin (then allowed to use the kitchen and the rest of the cabin services, except for the bedrooms). Considering the conditions and the prices are very cheap compared to the rest of Europe (me out after placing the site around 100-150 per night). The track itself in the northern part of the kooiciock abisco) that did is a mild to moderate (and beyond) and marked and well-maintained (the concertina wire Bush boards in egg and tunnels to meet already from day one). During the track there are several lakes. In certain cases you can paddle your own boat oar (another interesting anthropological experience), or pay for a place to move you in a motorboat (in each case only if the Senry? weather crossing dangerous and/or there is a paddle on the side from which you want to). Most of the route runs through the Valley between the Swedish mountain chain, the height does not exceed 1800 meters. However, the contrast between the topography of the Valley to the mountains, and unique weather of Northern Sweden, provide a unique experience that is not typical of the rest of Europe (who travels with me said that it's approaching that area of Scotland, but there was no dramatic scenery as in Sweden).

The local currency in Sweden is Swedish krona (SEK) and conducted a 10 euros (1 euro = 10 Swedish krona). Cheap transport way and fastest way is through. The flights made with the Czech company Skyways, which included a roundtrip flight from Tel Aviv to Stockholm, one domestic flight to Kiruna town (from which to take the train or bus to the trailhead at abisco) and fly back to town were filled, which is four hours away by bus from kooiciock, Stockholm. It should be noted that there are various options btisa back, like going back to Kiruna and take flight, or take a train to Stockholm town name Boden (16 hours). All together went something like 380$! That's amazing, even with respect to Charter flights (with Skyways also flew to Norway where great service they also won 3 consecutive years as a member of the world's best low yielding). Must take into account the training and invited to September at the end of the summer and they constitute an element in the price, but still very cheap rates. It also has to take into account the huts in the North closed in mid-September, so plan your route accordingly, if you wish to sleep.

The track made with something like 4 lbs on your back (I didn't end up a mattress and quilt surface could give) when I water 0.5 l bottle and arozzons rivers along the route. The equipment is important for those intending to sleep in warm clothing is on track and the end of the day and linen (pillowcase and sheet). I personally have outlined in detail the equipment taking here, when during the track went primarily with funkier head band-Israel and Marino fleece layer above it (and thanks to klum to borrow it). Hardly used a raincoat that had great weather, but better.

In summary, the Nordic track experience is unlike any other experience, both tracks in Europe and in other continents. Walking the route above the Arctic landscapes and unique experiences are possible (Aurora Borealis, deer, Great Lakes) can experience in other areas.

Recommendation: one of the highlights was the cliff named Skierfe that is not part of the course. The Ascension is after cutting the original route for half a day and then descending South back on track descending to Aktse.

Thank you for sharing.

A few questions:
Did you get a chance to see the Aurora Borealis in the trail period?
There are places that you can obtain in second trimester?
The weather at night? (Temperature, precipitation)

Thanks:)

To dawn:

-A good place abisco to see the Aurora Borealis (in all sorts of climatic and mathematical calculations). Not only that, but the phenomenon lasted over three hours and a very strong intensity (green and purple colors flicker around the trails and space "snake"). However, it takes luck and cloudless night. The strongest glow, but it starts as early as August.

-The second trimester I went with an Israeli partner named guy that nowadays also plans to finish the last section of the trail. From what I understand, there are a few private cabins are of the STF. You may need a name. However, in the middle of the section, you get to iaquik town, so maximum food need to take back to the section should not exceed 3-4 days. I recommend you ask the guy back on track when he returns (he published a common message in the Forum).

-Temperature and precipitation. Me personally was lucky and was almost days with rain. The rain was kind of cloud droplets. The rains are more powerful, but can have days when the rain stops. This should be taken into account. In terms of cold temperature! Even at night and in the mornings. It is important to have warm layers. With temperatures ranging from 0-10 degrees (jars each cabin). Probably some days even. Usually not the temperature itself determines how cold it will be, but the intensity of winds and precipitation with them.

Hope I answered your questions.

Regarding the pictures, hopefully.
