Yes, that is what we do here in Swedish Lapland. We ski. From late autumn to mid-summer, under the northern lights and the midnight sun. It's a love affair from the moment we get our first skis at an early age.
So you’ve skied them all, you know your thrills and you think what else? Don’t take my word for it; heliskiing in Swedish Lapland need to be on your bucket list. Cold powder far into the season and even the option of trying it under the midnight sun. Here’s a taste of what you might expect.Therese Sidevärn

The resort Riksgränsen is situated on the border of Sweden and Norway — just as the name in Swedish suggests. This is the last outpost and when the blizzards reign, also where the road ends. Nevertheless, the train stop is less than one hundred metres from the hotel and the base station of the ski lifts.Therese Sidevärn
People who have visited Riksgränsen during these last 20 years or so are familiar with "Strumpan" and "Jossi". One of them used to run the piste machine and is now a mountain guide. The other one used to run moguls and has become Sweden's most famous sommelier. These days they run a hotel together.Håkan Stenlund
Last year, in February, three of the world's greatest freeskiers, Reine Barkered, Aurelien Ducroz and Jackie Paaso, went to Björkliden to see the northern lights and do some skiing. I called up Reine to ask how their trip went. And some other stuff too.Håkan Stenlund
Abisko National Park, in Swedish Lapland, offers some of the best conditions in the world for northern lights watching. The unique climate of the area keep the skies almost clear, and the light pollution is next to nothing. And here, you also find the Aurora Sky Station.Håkan Stenlund
In Swedish Lapland we keep honestly prepared food from local produce close to heart. That comes quite naturally since nature’s pureness and lots of great ingredients surround us. Welcome here and taste all the goodness of nature that has over centuries adapted to life in our subarctic environment.Therese Sidevärn
