Hi, first post.
Thinking of doing the kings trail in SWeden or somewhere in Norway. Anyone else planning something this summer?Mar 5, 2011 at 9:48 am #1704784
I wanted to do that, too. I will be in Sweden/Norway only in May and it seems like more technical ability is required? Abisko National Park also seems awesome.
I am going down to Rikgransan instead. I might go to Narvik and afterwards, try to see the Norway coastline.
Then to the south, where things might be more accessible.Mar 6, 2011 at 6:17 am #1705042
Too much snow in May for where i want to go though.
Southern Norway should be cleared up by then though.Mar 7, 2011 at 4:12 am #1705382
Have you been to Knivskjellodden? The path is considered 'easy' by Norwegian Trekking assoc. but I am not sure how snow might affect.Mar 7, 2011 at 8:52 am #1705472
I'm trying to salvage a trip to Sweden which will (hopefully) happen late June. As of now I'm not sure whether we're going or not due to a work conflict.
If the trip happens I'll be staying with some family in Stockholm most of the time then traveling southwest to Coppenhagen as July approaches. I'll be passing through Gothenburg, Lund and Malmo. I would love to get out and hike for a day or two if possible.
If you end up in Sweden, put me down as interested, pending a lot of variables.Mar 7, 2011 at 9:00 am #1705475

Great! Thank you Roger. It looks like I have some reading to do…Mar 8, 2011 at 5:56 am #1705963
I'm looking to do a trip later in the summer somewhere in Europe. What is your email address?Mar 8, 2011 at 9:45 am #1706065
my email address is pyke.joshua at gmail.comMay 1, 2011 at 8:24 am #1731565
A friend is now joining me.
We will go at the start of July and spend around 10 days there. We will climb the 2 biggest mountains in Norway also.
We are doing the area in Jotunheimen. Anyone else interested?May 1, 2011 at 5:38 pm #1731742

Best of luck with your trip, Joshua. My son and I are doing the Kungsleden (from Abisko to Kvikkjokk) this summer, from June 25th through July 4th.May 2, 2011 at 9:41 am #1731965
I envy you guys. My summer plans have fallen by the wayside thanks to some work related political nonsense with the union here. Sigh.
I hope to see some photos when you return!

if my boss says i can't go i'll just quit my job!! that's the best thing about being 20 and having a crappy job. Quitting it won't hurt.May 5, 2011 at 2:52 pm #1733465
Yep, been there done that. Those were the glory days. The stuff of legend.
Now I'm a decrepit middle-aged hipster with a mortgage and a family :) We'll get to Sweden next year…
