Riksgränsen is a skiing and hiking resort in the very north of Sweden. It is situated in the wilderness that is really amazing, some 150 kilometers from the nearest town in Sweden, Kiruna. Riksgränsen is THE place in Sweden for off-pist and heli-skiing. However, the ski area is pretty small and the lifts are antique. The ski area has a potential that is much larger!
The Riksgränsen hotel is really nice with a large lobby with an open (gas) fire. The rooms are pretty basic, partly renovated and partly a bit worn down, but on the whole ok for a few days skiing. The beds are comfortable but we were disturbed by noice from the corridor several times during the night. The WiFi is free of charge but did not work very well. Some time it worked very well but most of the time it didn't work to connect to the network. The breakfast was good for the start of a skiing day but nothing to write home about. The dinner in the restaurant in the evening did surprise us though, it was excellent. Highly recommended! But the best thing about the whole stay was the staff at the hotel, they were VERY nice and VERY helpful.
Upgrade the lifts in the ski are and we will be back next year and the year after and ....
