In 2018, Emelie Forsberg went back to her homeland to attempt a Fastest Known Time (FKT) in the Kungsleden Trail, a hiking trail in the Swedish Lapland that boasts spectacular wilderness and is usually crossed by hikers in no less than 15 days. She completed the 450km trail in 4 days and 21 hours, beating the current FKT, held since 2017.
The trail starts in Abisko in the north and finishes in Hemavan in the south and the highest point is the Tjäktja Pass at 1,150 meters and the lowest at Kvikkjokk (330 meters). The first stage was the longest, with Emelie running 116km through the midnight sun until reaching Saltoluokta, the hut where she worked when she was 19 years old and where her love for the mountains began.
