There are many reasons for choosing Backcountry Skiing in Sweden

Spectacular scenery spreads out across the breathtaking arctic wilderness of Lapland. It consists of almost one-fourth of Sweden’s territory, and rests in the extreme north. Once known as a no-man’s land in the Dark Ages, yet the nomadic Sami people settled there. Through industrialisation, its timber and minerals were extracted, before tourism became an established part of the region.
