CWT alternative section Gorm LochMor/Loch Bealach a Mhadaidh

Hi everyone I wanted to post an update on a CWT section. We walked the CWT in 2020 and you can find my post in this forum (we coined it the Cape Rough Trail :D ). This year we walked the alternative section to the popular Oykel Bridge - Inchnadamph Route. This was North to South from Glendhu Bothy a...

Re: Hiking the Kungsleden Trail – 440 km through Swedish Lap

Wow, what an adventure. That's a long way to go. It must have been a challenge to lug all your gear in that heat! The landscapes look wonderful. Would love to do some Scandinavian hiking and scrambling myself one day. Thanks so much for the feedback - we much look forward to going back next year. A...

Re: Hiking the Kungsleden Trail – 440 km through Swedish Lap

A cracking read. That's a seriously long walk! But good (?) to hear that the Swedish mozzis can't match the Scottish midges :lol: . Interesting that you identify the first class hiking infrastructure as a big positive. I'm sure some folk would agree, whereas others wouldn't, seeking the absolute mi...

Re: Trail /hiking trainers

Hi there, I use the Sportiva Akashas and love them (lightweight and cushy) but they run very small, so I am usally a EUR 38 and had to order a EUR 39.5 in Sportiva (!). Last year, I used the ;Salomon Women's Trail Running Shoes, XA PRO 3D ' on the Cape Wrath Trail. They served me very well - they ar...

Re: Hiking the Kungsleden Trail – 440 km through Swedish Lap

Fantastic, an excellent write up of an excellent adventure. Having been to a few bits of Sweden and Norway, this area has always appealed. I particularly want to get to Rapadalen one day, though doubt I'll ever commit to as long a walk as yourselves. Great stuff. :clap: The huts and "windshelt...

Re: Hiking the Kungsleden Trail – 440 km through Swedish Lap

Superb report and nice video as well. I would be tempted to go earlier in the year when there's more snow (with skis or snowshoes) and less insects, but I guess the huts are not open? Hello, thanks for the feedback ! There is indeed also a winter season, which I believe is usually around mid March ...

Hiking the Kungsleden Trail – 440 km through Swedish Lapland

This year, we hiked the Kungsleden Trail in Swedish Lapland – a 440 km hike across northern Sweden that takes you from Abisko in the very north of Sweden all the way down to Hemavan, most of it within the Arctic Circle. Upsides  Top notch hiking infrastructure  Experience the ‘midnight sun’  Magn...

Re: Hiking the Cape Wrath (aka ‘Cape Rough’) Trail

I see you love hiking in Finland - initially our plan was to do the Kalottireitti but we then shifted gears because of uncertainties around travel restrictions. I hope to have a blog on that one next year ! I eventually managed to get to write up my adventures on the Karhunkierros in Finland, maybe...
