As I was planning for my Summer 2019 hiking adventure, I was preparing to hike the Kungsleden in Sweden – over 440 kilometers in pretty remote areas in Sweden. While planning, I decided to change my plans and hike the Arctic Circle Trail in Greenland. However, here’s my Kungsleden solo hike packing list (still under construction):

Recent tweaks and changes to my Kungsleden solo hike packing list

Since my last Laugavegur trail hike, these are the key tweaks/changes I made to my Kungsleden solo hike packing list:

  • I decided to exchange my Decathlon hiking pole for a double Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork. I really wanted to have two super reliable hiking poles. These also give me the flexibility to maybe in the future start exchanging my tent for a tarp (using the hiking poles as tent poles – but probably not on the Kungsleden).
  • Gregory Baltoro 65 (M) for Gregory Z30 Iron Gray. The Baltoro is bigger than the Z30 and will make sure I can more easily pack my gear and keep my gear dry while hiking.
