The Kungsleden Trail, Sweden. By Max Maloney

Hi Mont Team,

I have recently returned from my trip to Sweden hiking the Kungsleden trail and would like to share some of the photos with you guys. I am a big fan of Mont and rave on about it here over in Europe. I am currently studying in Germany; due to COVID I haven’t been able to get out too much so this trip was extra special.

Some trip details.
The Kungsleden (kings trail) is a hiking trail in far north Sweden which starts in Abisko and traverses 440km over mountains, rivers and forests finishing in Hemavan. Many reindeer roam high in the mountains which are bred by the local Sámi communities. Those willing to forage will find an abundance of mushrooms and berries adding some freshness to one’s hiking cuisine.

We were hiking in late summer (August/September) and experienced a bag full of weather; snow, sleet, rain and sometimes sunshine. Typical mountain weather I guess. The remoteness and open space reminded me what I miss about Australia. As Europe is quite densely populated it’s not always easy to find awesome remote nature. One pro is that the trial heads are all accessible by public transport.

Mont gear that featured on the trip includes my Mont firefly tent, Austral rain jacket and Sun Hat. Kept me dry and warm.

With warmest regards from Leipzig, Germany.

Max Maloney

Choosing a new tent is one of those moments that calls for serious research. It's a big decision, and a potentially risky one, if you get it wrong you may have to live with the consequences for a long time. I live in Tasmania and love exploring wilderness Alpine regions, especially winter camping.

So, my non-negotiables in a tent are it being waterproof, that's #1, then weight and space. Ok, looks play a part, but they are a bonus :)

“We are so lucky to live in the bush capital. Getting out in nature is good for the soul and the mind. Especially when greeted with an explosion of colour and life around every corner. Yesterday I spotted or heard 23 bird species, frogs loud and proud, kangaroos with little heads poking from pouches, ants repairing holes...”

I first visited Iceland in 2012 on my way to East Greenland. My time in Iceland on this first trip included driving around the Ring Road, the road that circumnavigates this incredible country. Since then I have been privileged to fly into Reykjavik’s airport, Keflavik, a further 5 times.
