Hotels, Eco Escapes & Lifestyle Resorts | Unearthing the Exceptional
Whether you’re a first time skier or a seasoned pro, you’ll find plenty to enjoy among the chic peaks of Swedish Lapland, where Hotell Riksgränsen can be found.
This luxury ski lodge is centrally located, just metres from both ski lifts and train station, so there’s no need to waste good powder time on your arrival.
All skiing is above tree line, and you can ride in all four directions across approximately forty peaks (some can only be reached by helicopter, a thrilling experience). There’s a variety of terrain for all abilities, and best of all, being located 160 miles inside the Arctic Circle, the chance to ski under the midnight sun.
Beyond the ski slopes there’s plenty more to do – dog sledding, golfing, hiking, and of course the chance to see the incredible Northern Lights.
The resort is small but perfectly formed, with the hotel, two restaurants serving fine locally produced food, and a spa with two outdoor hot tubs and a heart stopping view of the surrounding peaks.
You’ll also find a well-stocked sports shop in the hotel, and easy access to Bar Grönan, perhaps Sweden’s best après-ski. On or off the slopes, it’s the perfect place to enjoy the Swedish ski experience.
In the hotel you will also find our alpine SPA with its breathtaking view of Swedish Lapland’s mountains. Here you can relax after a day’s skiing, and enjoy massage, SPA treatments, jacuzzi, hot tubs and sauna.
Directly adjacent to the hotel is Riksgränsen’s oldest building, Meteorologen — a century-old log building, where you today will find our four-star ski lodge. In total Meteorologen offers 14 rooms of varying size, character and décor, a cozy dining room and bar.
In the evening, our field guides often give a slideshow presentation, where they cover topics from the local environment to the lesser-known stories of the early explorers. We regularly have scientists from the Russian and Indian base visit Whichaway, explaining elements of their latest, often groundbreaking research.
Once at our camp, the philosophy is simple – do as much or as little as you like.
Riksgränsen offers comfortable accommodation, modern international cuisine based on local produce, alpine SPA with breathtaking views of Swedish Lapland’s mountains, and world-class skiing.
Riksgränsen is located in the heart of Swedish Lapland, a huge snowy landscape with 60 peaks over 1200 meters just waiting to be explored. Just select the activity that suits you best and we will arrange the rest.
There are many ways to discover our surrounding mountains – on skis, by dog sled, snowmobile or helicopter to name a few.
Riksgränsen is situated 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, in the heart of Swedish Lapland.
Travelling from Stockholm to Kiruna takes approximately 90 minutes and then you join our Lapland Resorts Transfer which during another 90 minutes will take you along Sweden’s perhaps most beautiful road to Riksgränsen. This means that it doesn’t take more than about four hours to get all the way from Stockholm to Riksgränsen.
If you have more time and would like to experience the beautiful road up to Riksgränsen, we suggest you go by train.
SAS flies from Stockholm-Arlanda to Kiruna daily.
From Norway, you can fly between Oslo and Harstad/Narvik with Norwegian.
