Vemdalen Ski Holidays


Vemdalen ski holidays are snow sure and family friendly, with three distinct ski areas that add a sense of adventure.
  • Family Friendly
  • Learn to Ski
  • Non-Ski Activities
  • Off the Beaten Track

The season starts early in Vemdalen, which has great snow conditions and quiet slopes that are ideal for families and nervous skiers. But what we love most here is the variety you get from Vemdalen’s three ski areas: Björnrike, Vemdalsskalet and Klövsjö/Storhogna. A ski bus runs between all three and, rare for Scandinavia, you can ski them all on one pass.

Beginners and improvers have the biggest choice of runs, with gentle slopes above and below the treeline. And, although the blacks aren’t as challenging as some of the experts in our office would like, the off-piste is good fun, with mellow powder runs and tree skiing.

In the village area everything is within walking distance, and the service is exceptional - Vemdalen has one of the highest repeat customer records in Scandinavia. You’ve got everything from dog sledding to snowmobiling to keep you entertained, and the low-key après scene is concentrated in just a few bars, so the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.

Visit Sameland at Björnrike to meet reindeer and feed them with lichen, learn about the Sami people who have been living in northern areas since the stone age. Two traditional Sami dwellings have been built – one where you can eat lunch or have coffee and a cake (the Swedish fika), and one with an exhibition of the history of the Sami. There’s also a playhouse for kids to learn about how the Sami live today.

"Although this is one of our newest resorts, locals have been skiing here since the 1930s. A great place to bring your family, the three different ski areas and reliably good service really stand out."
