Meeting Place & Check-In

Fjällräven Classic organizes shuttle busses from Kiruna Airport and train station to our check in at Högalidskolan. Our hosts are stationed during Thurday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning and can inform you about next departure and answer other questions you might have upon arrival.

 

In Kiruna the check in to Fjällräven Classic is situated at Högalidskolan (WGS84: 67°51’35.1″N 20°14’6.1″E). This is where you check-in and receive your map, Trekking Pass and waste bag; where you pick up your food and gas for the trek; where you leave your extra luggage for transportation to Abisko and where you can grab a bite to eat or something to drink from Trekker’s Café.
