The journey begins in a birch forest in Nikkaluokta (Sweden). 2000 adventurers ready to hit the king's trail and walk the 110km from Nikkaluokta to Abisko National Park. It’s an epic journey in a vast, rugged wilderness way above the Arctic Circle also known as the Fjällräven Classic. Alongside with trekkers from all around the globe i set out on a adventure i will always remember. Despite the different levels of experience in the outdoors, we all shared the same love for nature.
The walk is very long and at times you have to do it in very hard conditions. Along the way you will meet people who eventually will become your friends. Friends that will help you when its tough and laugh with you when it is easy. It's a connection between people that is hard to describe but actually exist.
Surrounded by natures giants and Swedens highest Peaks you will walk in a trashfree environment with permission to camp anywhere you see fit due to the right of public access we have here in Sweden. Water is free and provided by nature for you to drink whenever you are in need but don't waste it.
As always when i am out and live completely on the outdoors i learn a lot of new things about myself and my love for nature always grows stronger. The Fjällräven Classic is definitely something i will do again and hopefully something you will join me in doing for 2018. If you did the Classic this year feel free to reply with your experinces around the event.
