Sweden’s northernmost ski resort – Riksgränsen – is located 200 km north of the Arctic Circle.

Far up north, in Sweden’s north-western corner lie the might mountains and vast seas. In the winter, enormous amounts of snow fall, providing the conditions for world class skiing. That is where Riksgränsen, Sweden’s last outpost before Norway, is located. Riksgränsen is a powerful and remarkable place like no other in the world. Nowhere else will give you the same feeling of freedom, natural snow and varied skiing opportunities, both on and off the pistes. If you have never been here before, you have something amazing to look forward to. And, if you have been here before, you know what we are talking about.

Lapland Resorts offer mountain experiences with that little extra something. There is a range of different winter activities to choose from such as downhill skiing, ski touring, heli skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobile safaris, ice fishing, snowshoeing and snow- and avalanche course. Riksgränsen offers a diversity that few others can, suitable for families but also adventurous. You will find the wilderness just around the corner, the mountains are high and the possibilities are many. Lapland Resorts offer different accommodation in Riksgränsen.
