Nordkalottruta or Arctic Trail (Finnish: Kalottireitti, Swedish: Nordkalottleden) is a marked hiking trail in the Arctic region of the Nordic countries. It has a total length of 800 km and lies along the border of Norway, Sweden and Finland. It begins at Kautokeino (located in Finnmark, Northern Norway) and of the 800 km, 380 km of the trail lies in Norway, 350 km in Sweden and 70 km in Finland. The trail crosses international borders 15 times and ends in the south in Sulitjelma (Norway) or alternately Kvikkjokk (Sweden).

The trail was originally planned in 1977. It passes through Øvre Dividal National Park, Reisa National Park, Abisko National Park and Padjelanta National Park as well as the Sulitjelmafjellet and Narvikfjell regions. It has more recently become a section of the E1 Path.

Points along the trail[edit]

Huts have been constructed along the trail. Almost all of the huts in Norway are operated by the DNT.[2] Many in Sweden are operated by the STF[3] and those in Finland by Finnish Forest Administration[4]. For a small fee (in some huts for free), it is possible to stay in the hut and use the facilities. Some huts are fully staffed and serve food, while most are self-service (some of these require getting the DNT key). A few may require reservations in advance. Supplies can be bought in some of them. Because Norway, Sweden and Finland all have laws establishing Everyman's Right, it is also possible to camp elsewhere along the trail, legally and for free. Some emergency shelters can also be found on the route.

The huts along the Nordkalottruta, between Kautokeino and Sulitjelma, include:[5][6][7]

The huts along the alternate segment to Kvikkjokk are:[59]

Other points along the trail, such as towns and landmarks, include:
