Summary

Unmistakably stylish, Sweden has pristine slopes, pine-scented saunas and top-notch cuisine, plus the incredible Northern Lights.

Skiing in Sweden is like a real treat. Everything here is tasteful and high quality, from the lifts and rental equipment, to the English-speaking ski schools. With blue skies and vast wildernesses blanketed in white, even the winter landscapes seem perfectly styled.

Less crowded than the Alps, Sweden’s soft peaks are ideal for families and first-timers, while the leading resort of Åre is close enough for weekend skiing. Alternatively, if you’re looking for more of an adventure, try the world’s most northerly ski resort - above the Arctic Circle, the free-ride mecca of Riksgränsen stays open into June, when you can ski untouched terrain beneath the midnight sun.

Wherever you visit, you’ll experience Sweden’s exceptional cuisine and stylish, candle-lit restaurants - something they do so well. The seafood and game are some of the best we’ve tasted, and you’ll find elk on some menus. Off the slopes, there’s even more to experience, from reindeer spotting in the forests, to husky sledding across frozen lakes. For a special treat, we can arrange a night in the ICEHOTEL®, where you can wrap up warm and watch the Northern Lights dance across the sky.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Sweden Ski Resorts

Close enough for weekend skiing, Sweden’s main resort of Åre is a short transfer from Trondheim airport in neighbouring Norway. In contrast, the northerly resorts of Riksgränsen and Björkliden sit off-the-beaten-track, above the Arctic Circle – after changing flights in Stockholm, the reward is empty slopes and off-piste skiing beneath the midnight sun or Northern Lights.

Åre Ski Resort

Rising above Lake Åresjön, Scandinavia’s largest ski resort, Åre, is great for escaping the crowds.

Riksgransen Ski Resort

The world's most northerly ski resort is a heli-skier’s heaven. We love it for the endless off-piste, the Northern Lights and the midnight sun.
