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.

It is possible for an extra charge to the liftpass fee – an off-piste insurance coverage! (A Carré/Carte Neige is instantly recognised by the French rescue and medical services and so any rescue costs incurred are automatically covered (i.e. you do not need to pay up front and claim back later))

In general a Carte Neige and a valid UK EHIC should be sufficient for most on-snow related accidents costs, but medical costs are not extensive and it should not be seen as a replacement for insurance cover.

Valid travel insurance is still recommended! Please check your emergency medical evacuation and repatriation insurance coverage policy for trip cancellation or interruption of ski holiday, for any reimburses of travel costs and ski package during your stay due to sickness or injury.
