To get the most from Fjällräven Classic Sweden – and stay safe in nature – you need to have the right clothing and equipment. That’s why we’ve deemed some equipment mandatory. Please go through it thoroughly to see what you have and what you need to get. Don’t worry! If you forget something you can always buy it in Kiruna. We will perform random equipment controls at the start in Nikkaluokta, just to make sure you have all the mandatory equipment.
By bringing the mandatory equipment we know that you are able to survive a forced break for a number of hours. Notify other trekkers and they will call our staff at the next checkpoint. Help will come but it may take time. With a tent, sleeping mat and a sleeping bag you will survive hours, until help arrives.
For safety reasons we have a list of mandatory equipment. During Fjällräven Classic Sweden you are resposible for your own safety. If you for some reason have to stay longer at one spot than you have planned in advance, the mandatory items are necessary for your own safety. Thus, it is very important that you have your personal gear. However, some of the items in the list may be shared with your fellow trekkers if you’re hiking in a group. If you are sharing equipment, it is very important that you stay together during the hike.
Items that may be shared between participants:
If you lack any item of the mandatory equipment you are not allowed to start in Fjällräven Classic Sweden. At the start in Nikkaluokta we will randomly check that participitants have their mandatory equipment. If you lack some item you have the possibility to complete your equipment in Nikkaluokta (very limited selection) or Kiruna.
