These are the posts about my thruhike of Padjelantaleden (Padjalanta trail)

In 2021 I completed my thruhike of Padjelantaleden (Padjelanta trail) together with my hiking buddy Thomas!

Beautiful scenery and an easy hike for the whole family.

Padjelantaleden is located in northern Sweden – the Swedish Lapland. It basically runs parallel on the west side of Kungsleden (King’s way).

Padjelanta national park is part of the Laponia UNESCO World Heritage site. The area is a Sámi region, where reindeer husbandry and other traditional livelihoods are still practised.

Padjelantaleden runs about 140km (87 miles), and ends at at Kvikkjokk Fjällstation (which is also the halfway point on the Kungsleden trail)

You can hike Padjelantaleden in either direction. At Ritsem, the Fjäll (mountain landscape) consists of higher and steeper fells than in Kvikkjokk, where the trail leads through forest sections.

If you are interested in the gear setup that I used for my thruhike of Padjelantaleden, you can find the list right here

My video is of course also posted on my Youtube channel – where you should go and subscribe 🙂 pretty please

Do you have any questions about the trail? feel free to contact me and I will try to help to the best of my abilities 🙂
