Kungsleden, Sweden

Inside the Arctic Circle hides the last remote wilderness in Western Europe. In Sweden’s extreme North runs Kungsleden, the “King of Trails,” a 275-mile route through an impressive landscape of birch forests, hidden glaciers, powerful rivers, and the highest mountain in Sweden. Running through four national parks and a nature preserve, hiking its entirety requires a month or more, but you can cover quite a bit of impressive landscape in a week.
