Hiking in Lapland? Excellent! We flew to Narvik, then took the train to Abisko. Hiked with a 45L rucksack, you DON'T need to take cutlery or cooking equipment if staying in the STF huts (get a youth hostel card to get a discount!) but you do need a sheet sleeping bag. Packing minimal is crucial; pack, remove half your stuff then actually pack was the advice I got....and I still could have reduced my kit! Many of the huts have food stores, check STF website for their current price lists for food, nightly rates and facilities (including saunas- a must!). The trail is relatively good, can be with boulders and muddy if rainy. The longest day 22km, was fine, even though it drizzled quite a bit, but there are often huts along the way, as indicated on the fjall maps available. Huts were never full, even in the high hiking season of July. It took us 7 days, with an additional trip up Kebnekaise. We did take the boat for 6km on our last day hiking to Nikkaluokta. Don't forget your camera - we saw golden eagle, ptarmigan, reindeer, and lots of amazing views!
