Riksgränsen Ski Holidays

Sweden

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.

North of the Arctic Circle, Riksgränsen ski holidays are completely unique. Here, the lifts open in February and don’t close until June. Home to the annual Big Mountain Championships in May, it’s a magnet for freeriders, with a heli-ski drop zone that's bigger than the Netherlands.

Ski touring is also high on the agenda but piste-skiers haven’t been forgotten - the slopes criss-cross into Norway and stay open until 1 am in June. There’s also a free shuttle to neighbouring Björkliden, giving you more slopes to ski.

With a nod to its past, the small village has an original train station and century-old buildings. There’s also a supermarket, plus a few restaurants and hotel bars - be warned, après drinks are expensive!

To experience more of the Arctic, the ICEHOTEL® makes an incredible add-on. And if you’re planning to visit in March, we highly recommend a Northern Lights excursion.

"Endless off-piste options, unrestricted heli-skiing, northern lights tours and the world famous ICEHOTEL® just a day trip away. As far as winter adventures go this is definitely one for your bucket list."
