A magical location with all-ability skiing, eclectic winter activities and a high chance of seeing the Northern Lights.

At the gateway to Lapland, Björkliden sits 200km north of the Arctic Circle, on the edge of Abisko National Park - one of the best places in the world to experience the Northern Lights. With views over frozen lakes and the U-shaped Lapporten Mountain, ski holidays in Björkliden feel truly special.

The ski area’s confidence-building slopes are ideal for families and first-timers, or there are some steep blacks for the more experienced. For a greater sense of adventure, the experts in our office suggest hiring a guide for ski-touring, off-piste terrain and heli-skiing.

Off the slopes, there’s more adventure to be had, with dogsledding and snowmobile tours to one of Sweden's highest mountain lodges, as well as trips to one of the country’s longest cave systems. For an extra special stay, the world famous ICEHOTEL® is an easy daytrip away.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

No snow so we had to travel to Riksgransen but it was still excellent nonetheless.

Spot on in terms of its recommendation by your team. Provided family-friendly skiing and opportunity to try other activities.

07/03/2017 Philip Slade

Quiet and relaxing with just enough easy skiing to pass the time and enjoy the outdoors and views. Away from it all simple holiday village. Probably more geared up for summer camps than a serious winter sports centre. A good, well run hotel and small general store and ski shop. Ideal for casual skiing on quiet slopes, no queues anywhere. Impressive views and Northern Lights viewing hut above hotel.
