The Northern Kings Trail with huskies, 8 days tour
The northern part of the Kings Trail will through one of Sweden’s most high alpine mountain areas. You will find Sweden’s highest peak, Kebnekaise. Our journey goes from the traditional Saltoluokta Mountain Station,
built 1912, north through high mountain passes to Abisko Mountain Station where the Kings Trail ends.
Day 1 Arrival to Saltoluokta Mountain Station
We meet and have information about the program for the following days and check the equipment. Together we will have a nice dinner. (D)
Day 2 Teusajaure, at the foot of the mountain
After breakfast we will meet the dogs, all Siberian Huskies and with different personalities. We give you instructions how to use the equipment, and with help from the guide we harness the dogs, load the sleds and make everything ready for departure. We steer west and travel along the river Stora Luleälven to Teusajaure
cabin where we spend the night. Approx. 40km (B, L & D)
The trail on the ice of the river Stora Luleälv is not always in good condition. If not we will take the dogs by car to Stora Sjöfallet and start there.
3 Singi, by Kebnekaise
We leave Teusajaure’s protecting birch forest and climb over the mountain to the next valley and the river Kaitumälven’s spring lakes. During the day we pass the Kaitumjaure cabins and then continue to the foot of Kebnekaise. Approx. 30km (B, L & D)
Day 4 Tjäktjapasset, 1150 meters above sea level
We follow the valley north and up to the mountain pass Tjäktja notorious among musher’s. Since we come from the south we will have a steep and very intensive uphill driving. Many are the musher’s who fear for the downhill driving from this slope. If we are lucky with the weather we will have a fantastic view south over the valley we came from. We spend the night in the Tjäktja cabin that is situated approx. 1100 meters above sea level. Approx. 25 km (B, L & D)
Day 5 Alesjaure and the surrounding deep valleys
This day’s distance is very short therefore we make a detour up in one of the surrounding valleys. We can promise steep hillsides and beautiful views! In Alesjaure cabins you can enjoy the luxury of a wood heated sauna. Minimum 13km (B, L & D)
Day 6 Abiskojaure, the lake by the ptarmigans mountain
We leave the open tundra and steer the dog teams down to the birch forest. During the day we will pass a rest hut called the kings wind shelter. This small hut was built when the Swedish king should walk parts of the Kings Trail. Approx. 25km (B,L & D)
Day 7 Abisko, back to civilisation
After a calm and easy morning we harness the dogs for the last time. We leave the mountains behind us and go down to the mountain village Abisko. Here in Abisko the Kings Trail begins or ends as it will be for us. We check- in at Abisko Mountain Station were we can enjoy showers, hot sauna and enjoy a nice dinner in the restaurant.
