Here, you will find everything you need to know before your visit to Abisko National Park. When it is best to visit the park, how to get there and the rules you will need to follow once you are there.
Abisko National Park is the starting point for Kungsleden (the King’s Trail), which takes hikers southwards through the national park and then all the way to Hemavan. Travel here is feasible in both summer and winter.
If you are visiting Swedish Lapland and Norrbotten County to experience the outdoors, we reccomend you to install the mobile phone application "Norrbottens Naturkarta" (Norrbotten´s Outdoor map"). It is free to download and available for both iPhone and Android. In the app, you find information, pictures and a map with all the trails, national parks and nature reserves in the area.
If you download the app you can use it when there is no coverage for your mobile phone. In the app there is a map that shows all the trails and through the phone´s gps you can see where you are.
