The Nordic countries have world-class opportunities for hiking, from the dramatic mountain landscapes of Lapland in northern Sweden and Jotunheimen in central Norway to the deep, quiet forests of Kainuu in Eastern Finland.
Nature Travels offers a wide range of possibilities for hiking holidays. Which tour is most suitable for you will depend on the kind of experience you are looking for - whether you would like a guided
or self-guided hiking tour, prefer accommodation in cabins along the route or the adventure of wild camping.

In addition to our range of dedicated hiking tours, note that we also offer a number of Summer Multi-activity tours, combining hiking with other activities such as cycling, canoeing or kayaking. We also offer a wide range of opportunities for shorter and less challenging walks. For example, our choice of log
cabins, bushcraft cabins and tree houses are all located in areas ideal for day walks.

Lapland, in the far north of Sweden, has some of the world's most stunning mountain scenery. We offer three guided experiences in this region, as well as self-guided version of the King's Trail tour.
In addition, there are two options for hiking further south, in Bohuslän on the west coast and in the Stockholm Archipelago on the east coast.
Hiking on the King's Trail from Abisko to Kebnekaise follows one of Sweden's best-known long-distance hiking paths. The King's Trail tour
includes the option to ascend Sweden's highest mountain, Mt. Kebnekaise at 2101m. Accommodation is in mountain stations and in simple but comfortable mountain cabins
along the route.

This is the self-guided version of the guided Abisko-Kebnekaise King's Trail tour and is offered at the beginning and
end of the hiking season (only the guided option is offered during the main hiking season in July and August). A moderately challenging hiking
tour with accommodation in simple cabins along the route, suitable for those with some previous experience of walking with a pack but still accessible
to a wide range of adult particpants. Option to climb Sweden's highest mountain, Kebnekaise, is available as an optional extra (though note that
ascents are not possible at the very beginning and end of the hiking season).

The beautiful network of islands that make up the Stockholm Archipelago is perfect for exploring on foot, with convenient boat connections between
the islands. This is an accessible hiking tour suitable for both adults and families, with overnight stops in local hostels
and guest houses along the way.
Sweden's West Coast archipelago in the area of Bohuslän also offers wonderful hiking. This is a 2-3 day tour where you can choose either a wild camping option where you choose your own camping spot each night (equipment provided) or to stay in comfortable hotels with some meals included. This tour makes a very good combination with any of our kayak tours in the area, or can be chosen as a stand-alone hiking holiday.

Norway deserves its reputation as one of the best hiking destinations in the world. We offer the opportunity to traverse the tundra landscape of the Finnmark plateau in the far north.

The far north in Norway is the location for our option for guided hiking in Norway, but with a very special twist! This is a 5-day tour in the remote landscape of Finnmark accompanied by 1-2 huskies, who help to carry some of the equipment. Along the way you will stay in simple cabins/lodges and wild camp in tents for 1-2 nights.

That's easy! We currently offer one option for hiking in Finland, located in the east of the country near the Russian border, an area rich in wildlife and also with a fascinating cultural heritage.

Kainuu in Eastern Finland is the setting for this guided tour, taking in a beautiful, tranquil landscape of forest, moorland and lakes. The tour has the added benefits of luggage transfers between overnight stops (meaning you can walk with just a daypack during the day!) and a chance to add evening bear-watching excursion where, with luck, you can encounter one of the Nordic region's most iconic and majestic animals, the brown bear.
