Relatively compact, the highest slopes reach over 900m, with vast opportunites for ski touring and an enormous heli skiing drop zone. There’s a free shuttle to neighbouring Björkliden and your lift pass covers both areas.
Skiers flock to Riksgränsen for the challenging off piste opportunities and superb guiding. However, the well-groomed slopes also offer plenty of variety for beginners and intermediates.
There’s something for every palate in the mountains here, but you should definitely try some traditional Swedish fare. Head for Nordals if you love a sunny terrace, or inside if it’s chilly. For dinner, make sure you book a table at the Meteorologen, where the food is out of this world. Or try Lapplandia at the Hotell Riksgränsen – one of the best restaurants in the resort.
You’re more likely to retire to a cosy bar in this resort and reminisce about the day with a beer or a hot chocolate. Later in the season, Pelikanhyllan has live music on the terrace.
Unique to Riksgränsen
The pistes are open until June, when you can experience the thrill of skiing under the midnight sun during the Swedish Midsummer.
