A multiday hike above the Arctic Circle is no place for an iPhone to die.National Geographic calls it one of the world's greatest hikes, which is how I came across it online.This September 2014 photo shows stone piles crafted by ambitious trekkers a short walk from the Abisko Mountain Lodge, one of two modern guesthouses that bracket the most popular, northernmost stretch of Sweden's Kungsleden trail. The train stops across from one of the biggest and busiest mountain lodges along the trail, in Abisko.This September 2014 photo shows a rough hut used by the indigenous Sami people and others who come to this windswept lake for fishing on the Kungsleden trail in Sweden. On the trail, you can also camp pretty much wherever you like.Between shelters, hikes run 8 to 14 miles.Near the shelter at Salka, located in a vast bowl formed where valleys meet, I stood still for several minutes as a small herd of reindeer wandered across the trail.This September 2014 photo shows the mountain huts at Alesjaure, which look down a wide valley where the most popular stretch of Sweden's Kungsleden trail heads south.
