Hiking (Sweden, Finland & Norway)

Guided and self-guided hiking tours in mountain, forest and archipelago landscapes

10 Hiking Holidays in Sweden, Finland and Norway:

Sweden, Norway and Finland are wonderful destinations for walking and trekking, with excellent hiking to be had the length and breadth of these vast countries. The Nordic countries have magnificent scenery, fresh air and clean water - and something very precious in the modern world: tranquility. You may find the silence broken only by the cry of an eagle, the hooting of an owl or the bark of a moose.

Nature Travels offers a wide range of guided and self-guided hiking tours with varying levels of challenge. Guided tours are ideal whether you are solo traveller or travelling with one or more companions, while self-guided hiking tours are perfect for those travelling as two or more persons.

In the mountains of the far north of Sweden, choose from hiking options between mountain cabins on the world-famous King's Trail, whether you opt for the spectacularly scenic section between Abisko and Kebnekiase (Sweden's highest mountain) or explore other areas of the King's Trail and the surrounding national parks to the south.

In Finland, the far east has quiet forests rich in wildlife and a guided tour with luggage transfers between accommodation, making your way along the Russian border towards the lovely Hossa National Park.

Norway's Jotunheimen region is home to some of the country's most spectacular scenery (and in a country brimming over with spectacular scenery, that's quite something!), including the stunning Besseggen Ridge as well as many lesser-known areas. Our hiking tours here combine the adventure and challenge of mountain hiking with the convenience of luggage transfers between overnights.

"Using your own two feet to explore is my favourite pastime. In the Nordic countries, there are plenty of opportunities to wander in the wilderness and hike to mountain cabins for the night!" Niki from the Nature Travels team

Should I choose a guided or self-guided hiking tour?

If you're a solo traveller, the answer is simple: a guided tour (as all our self-guided options require min. 2 persons for safety reasons. If you're travelling with one or more companions, then you can choose the freedom and flexibility of a self-guided option.

However, guided tours are by no means just for solo travellers. A knowledgeable guide will add an extra dimension to any experience - from your guide, you can learn about the natural and cultural heritage of the area you're hiking in and pick up a wealth of tips on navigation, outdoor safety and general hillcraft. If you're a group of friends, a private guided tour on custom dates can be a great option.

Where will I be staying on my hike?

Accommodation will of course vary depending on the location of your tour and option chosen, but for the majority of our hiking tours, you will be staying in cabins along the route, normally sharing sleeping accommodation with one or more other persons. The standard of the cabins varies from simple wilderness accommodation with no electricity or running water, to comfortable fully-featured mountain stations.

How long is the hiking season?

In the far north or in the high mountains, where autumn and winter arrive early and the snow persists well into the spring, the hiking season is relatively short, from around mid-June to September. Further south and in the lowlands, anytime from May to late September or even October can be wonderful for hiking tours.
