Riksgränsen ski holidays Skiing in the beautiful wilderness of the Arctic Circle


Skiing in Riksgränsen - the most northerly ski resort in the world where you can ski under the Northern Lights in winter. This is where the devoted boarders and skiers go to take full advantage of the long days and Midnight Sun in the summer and the fact that it drops around 300 inches or so of snow each year! Spring skiing is what Riksgränsen is famous for, and on the weekends the lifts shut down at 1 a.m!

Riksgränsen is probably Sweden's best off-piste skiing resort and as you can ski in every direction off the top of Nordalsfjäll, you can usually find deep powder. With 40 peaks giving around 1000m of vertical, heli-skiing is definitely worth trying out.
