This Arctic winter wonderland adventure ski holiday will see you ski touring Nordic style along the famous King's Trail/Kungsleden of Sweden. With the winter sun resting below the horizon, the Arctic landscapes of northern Sweden, featuring majestic peaks and frozen waterfalls, are bathed in an ethereal light. Our fabulous ski touring holiday through this winter wonderland along the King's Trail/Kungsleden of Sweden begins with 2 nights in Abisko - perhaps the best place in the world to experience the stunning Northern Lights. Then, after a day's instruction in the basic techniques of Nordic Skiing, we ski off into the wilderness, skiing across dramatic valleys and glorious viewpoint passes, as we follow the route of the King's Trail/Kungsleden. Dog-sledges carry the group's equipment and as the journey progresses we have the unique opportunity to become acquainted with the dogs and their individual personalities within the team. We overnight in remote mountain huts, some of which have saunas - the perfect place to relax after a full day cross country skiing in the cold, crisp air. Finally, from the Kebnekaise Mountain Station, beneath the highest peak in Sweden, we use snowmobiles to return to the roadhead. A memorable end to a fantastic ski touring holiday. Skiing the Kungsleden Trail demands a good level of fitness and, though cross country ski experience is not essential, you ought to have mastered the basics of down hill skiing.
