lapland skiing Holidays

Björkliden is a great winter & skiing destination. There is a full range of winter activities including huskies, snowmobiles & northern lights tours (Feb & March). There are real mountains for real skiers and meter deep natural snow. The skiing season starts in early February and ends in mid May. The vertical drop is 538 metres which is the third highest in Sweden. There are 24 pistes, the longest being 3 kilometres and a variety of runs to suite all skiers. Skiing is also available in the Riksgränsen area, with transfer buses operating between the 2 regions (approx 30mins).

Björkliden is located in the same mountain valley as Abisko and Abisko National Park. It offers exceptional views over Lake Torneträsk and of Lapporten, the gigantic natural door to the mountains.

This holiday can be combined with many of our Lapland holidays. Please ask one of our specialist travel consultants.
