Abisko Heli-Skiing in Lapland Sweden







Heli-Skiing in Lapland, Sweden! In the land of the midnight sun, also known as Europe’s last wilderness

Lapland is a region in Northern Sweden. It is also known as Europe’s last wilderness. It offers some of the best and wildest heli-skiing in Europe. No regulations, no concessions. You can land anywhere and offers magnificent heli-skiing in the land of the mid night sun.

The Abisko alpes is situated at altitude “68 degree North” and 200km above the artic circle. It is located 90km away from the Norwegian coastal mountain range with exposure of both maritime and inland temperature with different micro-climate as result. The snow have a different texture than the alpes and sticks to the mountain faces and but the cold artic exposure of temperature makes the snow stay dry from the cold.

The magic arctic mountain landscape provide us with great variety of skiing around in the Abisko Alps and the glaciated alpine region of Kebnekaise.

With more than 100 unique peaks that reaches to 2000 meters with a vertical drop from 600-1450 meters of skiing on big open slopes, long glacier cruising, and steep ride-able terrain!

The summits in the region are not particularly high compared to the Alpes but the runs are surprisingly long. The average are around 800 vertical meters with some are respectable 1,400 vertical meters. Nearby the lodge stretches the mountain range of “the Abisko Alps”, with runs from 500 to 800 vertical meters. The peaks of Tjåmahus, Keron and others are reached in just five minutes flight away from the lodge. A bit further is the Kåtotjåkka mountains area with runs up to 1,000 vertical meters, further on the Nallo/Sielmatjåkka with runs up to 1,400 vertical meters. Last but not least, we are also able to offer trips to Kebnekaise massif with runs up to 1,400 vertical meters. We often discover that little something extra on our trips – new runs and perhaps even new areas to ski.

From some peaks it is possible to ski 360º degrees from the top of the peak and in varied terrain up to 40 º degrees in steepness. You can ski cold powder sheltered north/east facing slope or great spring snow on sun exposed west/south facing slope depending on timing, aspect and clear weather cycles.

If you are based in Europe and want to heli-ski without traveling half way around the planet, Sweden is both convenient and practical for either a week or an extended weekend! With a helicopter at your disposal, good skiing conditions can almost always be found.

Kallax Flyg is ISO 14001 certified. We also try to be as efficient as possible in terms of flight time between runs and logistics. We don’t land if we see that cross-country skiers are on their way to the same peak. We maintain close communication with nearby Sami communities in order to give the best possible consideration to reindeer herding.

Safety: II Each guest will be familiarized with both avalanche safety equipment and helicopter safety. Risk management is included as part of all of our activities, whether it be skiing, climbing or ice fishing.

Each day all guides will attend a morning safety briefing and fill out a risk management log detailing conditions which will be logged and assist in melt freeze zones and avalanche forecasting for the region. The lodge will offer all logistical and consultancy services provided by the IFMGA guides based at the lodge full time so as to assist in providing a top quality service to you.
