    Grövelsjön: a hikers paradise in Dalarna, Sweden

    About a year ago I went on a two week solo trip through Sweden. On this trip I went as far north as Sälen, Sweden’s southernmost fjäll. Here someone told me about Grövelsjön: a mountain area on the border with Norway, a little further north than Sälen. He also told me that he had made the most beautiful hike in Scandinavia here: the Sylen hike. With a boat you’ll sail across the lake from Sweden to Norway and you hike back through the mountains. We were curious about that and so we decided to visit Grövelsjön this year during our summer vacation. We spent a few days here in collaboration…

The other best cities in Sweden to visit I mention in this article I visited during my nature trips as part of the trip.   Personally, I always enjoy exploring northern cities. The atmosphere is generally relaxed, I love the fine shops and the special architecture that are so characteristic of Scandinavia. In addition, I regularly…

    Kungsleden hike: from Kvikkjokk to Saltoluokta

    In the summer of 2018 we hiked two sections of the Kungsleden hike in Sweden: from Ammarnäs to Hemavan and from Kvikkjokk to Saltoluokta. The latter is one of the least walked sections, but certainly not one of the least beautiful. Because of the various lakes that you cross by boat, this particular section is a bit more complicated than the other sections. That’s why I’ll tell you all about it in this article so that you are well prepared for your journey. Enjoy reading!   About the Kungsleden hike in Sweden The Kungsleden Trail (the “King’s Trail”) is Sweden’s most popular multi-day hike. The more than 400 kilometer long…
