Upcoming season – The Midnight Sun

Summer is almost here! And not too far away is the midnight sun – when the sun is up around the clock. Why not celebrate Midsummer at our sister resort in Riksgränsen? Enjoy a classic Midsummer celebration with herring and potatoes, as well as dancing around the Midsummer pole, along with traditional Midsummer skiing as we keep the ski system open. During the summer, you can enjoy hiking (perhaps to Trollsjön or up to Låktatjåkko Mountain Lodge?), mountain biking, caving, or just relaxing in the beautiful surroundings.

ROOMS AND ACCOMMODATION

The resort in Björkliden is beautifully located a bit up on the mountain. Here, you can choose if you want to stay at the 4-star Hotel Fjället, be directly connected to the ski area in your own cabin in Kåppas Cabin Village, or at the distinguished Gammelgården Ski Lodge. For a large family, a group of friends or a company retreat, we recommend our exclusive log cabins in Solhyllan, and for an experience out of the ordinary, we recommend a night at Låktatjåkko Mountain Lodge. Since 1939, Låktatjåkko has been a popular travel destination among hikers and skiers, and for good reason-the mountain lodge is spectacularly situated at 1228 meters above sea level, in the col between two peaks and 9km away from Björkliden.

BJÖRKLIDEN – A MOUNTAIN VILLAGE WITH ROYAL HISTORY

Few Swedish mountain resorts are entitled to the label ”classic”, and Björkliden is certainly one of those few. The first tourists arrived in the early days of the previous century. They travelled by train on the newly built railway and were pioneers in this, at that point in time, virtually unexplored part of the world. We see this as an important cultural heritage to cherish. We have delivered great experiences since 1926 and we strive to protect the small and genuine; with empathy, traditions and atmosphere; an oasis for body and soul; all year round.
