National Park Hiking

Scandinavia's unspoilt wilderness areas are the finest in Europe. If you like dark pine forests populated by foxes and bears, head for northeastern Finland's Karhunkierros trail. Norway's Jotunheimen National Park encompasses hundreds of lofty mountain peaks and crystal-blue lakes. Lying inside the Arctic Circle, Abisko National Park in Sweden is at one end of the epic 440km Kungsleden hiking trail. But walkers will never forget the bleak volcanic slopes, steaming pools and mossy valleys of Iceland's Landmannalaugar to Þórsmörk trek.
