Summary

If you want to explore the Arctic wilderness, but from a comfortable hotel with plenty of fantastic off-piste easily accessible from the top of the lifts, then look no further.

With a season which runs from February to June, these unique Swedish resorts sit far north of the Arctic Circle and receive plenty of natural snow, providing reliable conditions season long. So much so that Riksgränsen is known as the 'spring skiing capital of Europe'.

Riksgränsen is the world's most northerly resort, offering endless off-piste and is a heli-skier's heaven - the drop zone is bigger than the Netherlands! There is plenty of access to the powder from the pistes too, plus great guiding options for the intrepid explorer, not to mention its famed excellent powder!

Björkliden is a magical location with skiing for all abilities, eclectic winter activities and a high chance of seeing the Northern Lights, sitting at the edge of Abisko National Park - one of the best places in the world to experience them. We recommend hiring a guide to make use of the abundant off-piste terrain, or try ski touring or heli-skiing.

Combine both of these Arctic resorts for an awesome experience you won't forget!

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Suggested Itinerary

Fly from the UK to Kiruna via Stockholm and take the 1 hour 35 minute shuttle bus to Riksgränsen.

Riksgränsen - Stay in the world’s most northerly ski resort for three days of heli-skiing and mountain touring. This is prime Northern Lights territory, so there’s a high chance they’ll put on a show while you’re here.

On day four take the shuttle bus to Björkliden (25 minutes) - the bus leaves early so you won't lose any time on the slopes.

Björkliden - A little more gentle than Riksgränsen, Björkliden’s all-abilities ski area offers a bigger choice of slopes, while the experienced can head off-piste, taking advantage of the many options for guiding and ski touring available. From here, it’s a 1 hour 15 minute transfer to Kiruna airport for your flight home.
