Kungsleden (the Kings Trail), a 450 km trial through Lapland in northern Sweden, passing through several national parks, a unesco world heritage site, and a swedish national treasure. While this spectacular route is usually backpacked or skied, Krissy Moehl, Luke Nelson and I are going to trail running the northern section of this trail. After a couple of months of planning and prep work it's finally happening.
Over next week, we are running from Vakkotavare to Abikso, via Kebnekaise. Running hut to hut allows us to go super light, carrying only the bare necessities, and purchasing the food we need at the huts along the way. I'm shooting stills, and we will be posting updates when we get cell service along the way. follow #runthekingstrail and #swedishlapland for our feed. Thanks to Swedish Tourism (STF), Swedish Lapland, Flora, Clif, Trail Butter, Patagonia, Buff, and Trail Runner for support for this adventure.
