Riksgränsen – Swedish Lapland
The World’s most northern ski resorts
At the top of Swedish Lapland, by the Norwegian border you find Riksgränsen – the World’s most northern ski resort. Nearby is Björkliden and these two ski resorts are known as fantastic skiing and actually Sweden’s best off-piste mountains.
Every winter there’s a huge amount of snow and it’s possible to do heli-skiing and guided summit tours. After a fun day on the mountain an afterski or nice dinner doesn’t sound so bad. Both Riksgränsen and Björkliden offer several restaurants and bars with local food & beverages.
You don’t have to choose between the two mountains – lift pass gives you access to both Riksgränsen and Björkliden and you can ride the shuttle bus for free on presentation of a valid lift card. Transport departs from Björkliden up to Sweden’s highest mountain station Låktatjåkka. They also offer winter activities such as dog sledding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing or cave tours and nice hiking in summer. Link to Abisko
Björkliden is family-friendly with 23 pisted slopes with different degrees of difficulty, guided off-piste top tours, ski school and a kids club. As it’s located a short distance from Abisko it offers great opportunities for watching the Northern Lights. Aurora Sky Station is listed in the Lonely Planet’s top 10 places of the world for Northern Lights viewing.
Riksgränsen is for both the adventurer and skiing for all. Choose from 15 slopes ranging from green to black or journey out to explore your own path in any of the off-piste tracks. No matter what fits your fancy, you will find it somewhere within our over 5200 metre long lift system. Riksgränsen is an awesome nature experience with World-class skiing, summit tours to heli skiing with about 60 skiable peaks. It offers nice accommodations in various types from cabins or hotels with a four-star standard.
