King's Trail - Snowshoe Adventures in Europe's Frozen North

The Northern reaches of this globe are well known to be cold and icy.

And it is here where the adventure and hardy members foray along the King’s Trail.  
Ah, but what on earth is the ‘King’s Trail’? Well, if we are to take its native name we would be calling
it the ‘Kungsleden’,and it’s a world-famous route which take you through some of Sweden’s most
amazing scenes.
The is in the borders of the Sami folk’s ancestral domain. The expanses of birch forest, glaciers,
rivers and the highest peaks in all of Sweden.
Those seeking a snowshoe winter trek in Europe need look no further.

Sweden’s Beautiful Wilderness
The adventure has its beginnings in Abisko, one of Sweden’s oldest national reserves.
It’s famous for having one of the greatest vistas to witness the ‘Aurora Borealis’ (Northern Lights)
out of anywhere in the world.
This adventure averages a distance of 14 km a day, venturing through the winter wilderness
bequeathed with an ever changing landscape. Each and every night shall be spent in a new location
in remote mountain huts. If you are a fan of saunas in the temperate weather of the United Kingdom,
then you haven't experienced anything until you enjoy a hot sauna after a day in the snowy mountains

A real Adventure.
If this sounds like the kind of adventure you would be interested in, Adventurous Ewe has the perfect package.
The real appeal of this adventure is that you will be entirely self-sufficient,
carrying 12kg-14kg of equipment yourself for the entirety of the trip.
As a result, you will need to be in a good level of fitness in order to be able to take part in
the challenge.

Those who go on a trip with a real desire to taste the local cuisine will be most pleased
that throughout the journey you will be eating traditional Sami food, that is reindeer meat.
You will also need to employ specialist equipment in order to traverse this snowy plain, as you will be in many cases stepping atop freshly fallen snow. For the purpose of this
you will have to make use of a snowshoe. But if you have never even seen, let alone put on a
snowshoe before, never fear! As you will be instructed on how to properly walk wearing them.
