The Fjällräven Classic Sweden trail starts in Nikkaluokta, but unless you have a car, you’ll find it difficult to get there. But that’s where we come in. We take care of most of the logistics on the ground once you arrive in Kiruna, the main transport hub for the region. And we make sure you get to the start in Nikkaluokta.
But getting to Kiruna is down to you. However, we can point you in the right direct. You can fly – the quickest option – or take the train – the scenic but slower route. Flights from Stockholm take roughly 90 minutes. Train travel is significantly longer. For flight booking visit SAS or call +46(0)8 797 4000 or visit Norwegian Airlines or call +47 2149 00 15.

We provide transfers from Kiruna Airport and Kiruna train station to our basecamp at Högalidsskolan and on to the start area in Nikkaluokta. Let us know before 5 August when and how you’re arriving into Kiruna. This helps us ensure we have enough buses at the right places and times to get you all to the basecamp in Kiruna. From mid June an online form will be available for you to fill in. In this form you also inform us about which bus you will take from Kiruna to the start in Nikkaluokta.
If you travel by car and want to park it in Kiruna during Fjällräven Classic Sweden there is a limited amount of parking lots at the base camp at Högalidsskolan. In addition, there are parking lots at Matojärvi ice hall, about 500 m from the base camp.
We arrange transfers from Abisko to Kiruna Airport for all flight departures from Monday to Saturday morning. On request the buses will also stop in Kiruna city on the way to the airport. This transfer isn’t included in the ticket price. The bus ticket Abisko-Kiruna costs 200SEK and can be purchased in Kiruna at the basecamp or in Abisko at the finish. Please note that you must buy a ticket at least 12 hours before departure.
In addition to these buses, there are public trains and buses. You can check public bus timetables here: www.ltnbd.se and trains here: www.sj.se Trains from Abisko go to Kiruna and all the way to Stockholm and even Gothenburg as well as Narvik in Norway.
Along the trek you’ll be sleeping in a tent wherever you want of course, but before and after the hike you have a few options, some with more creature comforts than others.
