A perfect place for people looking for a winter getaways at Arctic Circle. Situated next to the train station, Riskgränsen is one of the best place for intermediate-advance downhill and cross country skiing. The nearest chairlift is just within 100m walking distance.They provide various winter activities including snow walk, snowmobile safari and dogs sledding... Its facilities include ski shop, after ski bar, restaurants, pub, indoor swimming pool and sauna, outdoor hot tubs... The staffs are very friendly and able to assist you whenever you need helps. What's more, you could also have a chance to watch the amazing northern lights during the night! :)

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one week to go skiing. Our room was a big disappointment. It was called "simple apartment sleeps 1-2 people" That meant not renovated like the rest of the hotel which is annoying when they advertise the hotel as newly renovated. The pipes in the shower were rusty, there was a hole in the wardrobe door and the paint was peeling off the wall. The "bed" was a sofabed and a pullmanbed, not a bed for two which the description made it seem like. Also the tap was dripping and when we told the reception about this they answered "it has always been that way". The cleaning inspection which was made a big fuss about upon arrival never showed up. If we would have known about the standard of the apartments before we would have taken the smaller simpler skiers room which was cheaper. The food available is very limited. There were no vegetables seen in the store or any of the resturants. Forget about eating healthy. We chose the apartment partly because we wanted to cook our own food but the groceries available were very limited and of poor quality. The whole hotel is a bit shabby and needs a facelift. We wanted to go in the outdoor hot tob which was priced 150SEK on the homepage but when we got there we realised you had to pay the entry to the spa as well.

We arrived on June 26, just after midsummer, with the regional bus 91 (see www.ltnbd.se). The bus, which took us there directly from Kiruna Airport, was cheap and very comfortable. It also matched the incoming flight from Stockholm perfectly. Worth mentioning is the half price on flights vs own cabin on the train if you travel with someone and book a month or so in advance. You also reach Riksgränsen in only 3h instead of 16h by train. Our studio was small, but clean, modern and well-equipped with tv, fridge, drying cupboard and a proper pentry. For us, this was a good start of a mini-holiday with a one-day hike in the nearby beautifully green valley Kärkevagge. You get there easily, 3 stations by train (www.sj.se) to Låktatjåkka, from the train station just outside the hotel. With a good map you do not need expensive guides to go there over the day. Tickets are bought on board the train. Beware the trains only go once per day and may not stop at the station unless you specifically ask the conductor ! There is a good supermarket in the area, selling outdoor equipment as well. The studio pentry was perfect to prepare all meals and a lunch for a small backpack on the day trip. After the hike, back at the hotel around 5 pm, it was a pleasure to relax in the arctic spa before we tried the joyful bar at Meterologen. For my part, I lift my hat for the generous staff at Riksgränsen. Their friendliness and attention to detail really made us feel welcome an valued as visitors ! A spectacular view of the midnight sun panorama from our studio flat qualifies this venue for nature lovers who seek a city break with some outdoor adventure. Remember to bring Swedish cash as there were no ATM machines here and bus drivers did not accept any cards...

Just come back from a week in Riksgransen and would highly reccomend it. We stayed in the hotel and the room was fine, tv and nice bathroom. It stays light 24 hours so
a bit freaky having sunlit room at 3am!
We mainly ate in the bar which has a limited but nice menu burgers or raindeer stew.
Was about a tenner each so not bad. The Laplandia restaruant is a bit more expensive but food is lovely. Need to get a loan if you want to drink in the bar (the only one for miles and miles) or get some low (3.5% or less) booze from the supermarket.

If you want good snow at the end of April -May then go cos you cant beat it for this time of year. There are only 6 lifts (two chairs and some drags) but the heliskiing/snowboarding is worth every penny and you get some amazing views.

Just return from 4 days at Riksgransen in Swedish Lapland. R. hotel is a lovely, new renovated hotel with perfect location if you like skiing and see the northen light at sky. The rooms are very fresh but small. We stayed at a slalom room. It was new renovated. You have also your own plasma tv and own bathroom. The view is of course over the mountains. The service here is also very good....It depends from year to year because of season workers. Last year it was less good....but this year was superb.
The spa: Very good and please don´t miss the hot tub outside with a magnific view.
The food: Breakfast: Good....mutch to chooce between. Lunch: It depends were you decide to eat. Dinner: Exellent!
Go here its a perfect holiday for those who loves skiing!
