Are the cabins along the King's Trail likely to be open in mid-June (around June 20) this year? I'm specifically interested in the stretch from Ammarnäs to Hemavan. (My guidebook says they usually open in "late June".)
In 2016, the cabins in that area will open on June 23, according to the Hemavan Tourist Office:
They open a few days later that month, the 23 of june so if you can wait a few more days it is not a bad idea. Before that it can still be a lot of snow and/or very wet in the terrain so we recommend people to walk after midsummer, usually it is better conditions then.

Further north (Abisko to Kebnekaise), the cabins actually open a few days earlier:
The huts [near Abisko] open on June 17th. Temperatures have been really high the last weeks so chances are that the trail will be snow-free even in higher altitudes by the time the huts open. However, I would recommend contacting [email protected] for more information.
