Welcome to Riksgränsen

Welcome to Riksgränsen, Sweden’s northernmost and most legendary ski resort. Nowhere else will you be so pampered in terms of feeling of freedom, natural snow and varied skiing terrain, on both the piste and off-piste. If you haven’t been here already, you really have something to look forward to. If you have been here, you know what we are talking about. On a good day, there is no ski resort in Sweden that can match skiing in Riksgränsen.

Vi gick till Riksgransen för den tidiga under skidsäsongen. Hotellet har en massa att erbjuda. En mysig lounge, en bra restaurang (utmärkta bufféer), ett litet spa och många andra faciliteter. Det är en riktig village i en byggnad. Personalen var mycket vänlig och hjälpsam. Kommer definitivt komma tillbaka nästa år! Ruwan – 31 March 2017
