Abisko & Kiruna – Canyons, Mines and Northern Lights

4 days, 4 nights in Kiruna and Abisko, two of the best places on Earth to catch the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. And as I was about to discover, home to many lesser known but no less amazing wonders.

Kungsleden, Lapland, Sweden.

Kungsleden in autumn: From Tjaktja to Abisko

The last of my week long hike in Swedish Lapland, and the second part of my adventure on the Kungsleden. Amazing panoramas, stunning lakes and reindeer herds in late summer/ early autumn.

Kungsleden, Lapland, Sweden.

Kungsleden in autumn: From Kebnekaise to Tjaktja

Hiking the beautiful Kungsleden (King’s Trail) in northern Sweden, from Kebnekaise (from Nikkaluokta) to Abisko. A journey across dramatic mountain passes, vast open valleys and elegant lakes in the Arctic Circle in early autumn.

Tarfalastugan, Tarfala. Lapland, Sweden.

Tarfala: Hiking to the magical glacial valley

Somewhere in Swedish Lapland, nestled among mountains and glaciers, lies the mysterious Tarfala Valley. The dramatic, dreamlike landscape, will forever be etched in my mind.

Kebnekaise: From office to top of Sweden in 72hrs

Hiking (almost) solo in the Arctic Circle from Nikkaluokta to Kebnekaise, tallest mountain in Sweden, in late summer. A few bad decisions, a few good ones, a sufficient recipe for an adventure across deep grassy valleys and snow capped peaks.
