  • Great outdoor activity for families. Adventures just outside the door. Easily accessed and good accommodation. The hostel is clean and staff is gentle. . 
  • Winter landscapes of this national park were amazing. Would have been nice to explore more of it. Highly recommended

  • Lots of great hiking and also start or finish of the kungsleden trail. Great for both multi day hikes or single day ones. The last great wilderness in Europe and definitely rivals New Zealand in terms of scenery. Absolutely beautiful. Weather can be unpredictable so bring a rain jacket.
  • A great national park. We visited the park and stayed for two nights in the cabins during the off-season (second half of September 2016). The hikes were wonderful, and the cabin pleasant though quite pricey. If you visit in the off-season, be ready for very minimal services: the visitor center is closed, and reception is open for very few hours every day.
  • Absolutely incredible. On a clear day, walking the plateau is a memorable experience to put it lightly. If you have pictured hiking in rugged Swedish nature, you will find everything you've dreamed of. If you're driving in and have only time for a day trip, I strongly recommend taking the tough hike straight up the hill to the hut at the end of the chairlift, grab a coffee, then walk out around the Plateau and take some photos. Once youre done, take the chairlift down to save your knees, and grab a blanket if it's cold. The view going down is incredible, and feels well earned after the tough climb. Tip: The chairlift no longer runs after ~4pm, so time your day carefully. Don't miss Abisko if you're in the North.
  • We had a good guided flower tour along the river. It was amazing that we found so many nice flowers.
  • What's not to love about this environment? It's beautiful, well kept and even offers two spots for camping inside it's boundaries! A must-see of the north!
