In the heart of Lapland and 200km north of the Arctic Circle, Björkliden serves up some spectacular scenery and phenomena.

Its base is on the shores of the Torneträsk frozen lake with the Lapporten, an iconic U-shaped mountain marking the gateway to Lapland in the background. The Abisko National Park, a site of special scientific interest, is on the doorstep and offers one of the best places in the world to view the aurora borealis more commonly known as the magical northern lights.

Björkliden is also bursting with skiing opportunities. The slopes and lifts provide an ideal environment for children and first-timers to build confidence and improve their techniques. For those more experienced you can access black diamond slopes, ski touring, cross-country skiing, off-piste skiing and even heli-skiing.

Off the slopes join a dog sled ride in the mountains; experience one of Sweden's longest cave systems - Kåppasjåkkagrottan, or hop on a snowmobile that will take you up to Låktatjåkko Mountain Lodge, Sweden's highest located mountain lodge. If that's not enough you can also add on a visit or stay at the spectacular ICEHOTEL®.

Björkliden really does offer something for everyone - whether you’re looking for an unforgettable winter experience to start you off in the world of snow, searching for extreme challenges to test your skills, or to fulfil a lifetime dream and view the northern lights.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Don't be put off by the exterior of the Hotel Fjallet - inside it is warm and welcoming with the permanent log fire burning in the lounge. The staff are lovely and the food is of a very high standard. While the rooms are possibly a little spartan they are clean and of an acceptable size. The ski run is directly outside the hotel and a button lift takes you to the rest of the slopes, which although not huge still gives some excellent skiing. Don't miss the opportunity of taking a dog sled ride across the frozen lake with Michael (from Fort William, Scotland) and Marie (Grenoble, France) who let us harness their dogs and explain about their charges. We took the opportunity to walk up to the hut, which is about 500 metres from the hotel to view the Northern Lights rather than spend a large amount of money going to the Aurora sky station. This is a great place for a three or four day stay and we would certainly come back again.

Brilliant resort for beginners and families.

We stayed here over Feb half term which luckily was the week BEFORE the Swedish 'sport week''. The slopes were empty and the T- bars, although cold and quite long, quick to access. The staff were very friendly, and it had great ski -in /ski out. Good ski hire equipment. It is a very small ski area. I suggest buying your ski pass out there when you decide how many days you actually want to ski, as the snowmobiling etc looks great. You can hire thick suits and boots to stay out all night watching for the Northern Lights and they also have a little hut with a heater up by the viewing area - which was better than the Sky Station I thought. An enjoyable mini break.
