We're the first to long for a hot summer's day in the cooler months, but there's also no better feeling than a crisp, frosty stroll - the sort that leaves you with rosy cheeks and a new spring in your step. Enter, King's Trail, located north of the Arctic Circle, amid the snowy landscape of Kungsleden. Despite its dramatic setting, the terrain doesn't require much expertise. We'd suggest starting at Abisko, from where it's around a 10-day hike (speed depending) to the Sami village of Nikkaluokta.
Duration: 10-12 days
