The trail starts in Hemavan in the south and extends to Abisko in the north 45 mil. In between, there is an extremely diverse terrain that offers good hiking no matter if you are an experienced hiker or a beginner.
Along the first part of the trail, Hemavan to Ammarnäs, Svenska Turistföreningen (STF) offers service and accommodation at five mountain huts. The huts are self catering and open with a host from mid June to late September. The distance between the huts varies between 8-19 km.
When hiking through the beautiful valley of Syterskalet you pass the highest peak in the county of Västerbotten – Norra Sytertoppen 1768 m above sea level. The beautiful seven bridges in the south part of lake Tärnasjön is also one of the highlights along the trail.
