Top Ski Touring Trips in Sweden
In the depths of winter Sweden becomes a snowy wonderland, where you can ski almost anywhere in the country. If you stay for winter you may glimpse the Northern Lights while carving your own tracks in the wild Swedish mountains. Visit between November and April for ideal skiing conditions.
Located in the extreme north of Europe, Sweden is one of the Nordic and Scandinavian countries. It borders Norway to the west and north, Finland to the east, and connects with Denmark to the southwest via a bridge-tunnel. By area, Sweden is the third largest country in the European Union. The Scandinavian Mountains stretch along the western border that separates it from Norway, while to the east it has a long coastline. And more than half the land is heavily forested with large chunks of woodland.
Influenced by the warm ocean Gulf Stream, Sweden has a relatively mild climate compared with other countries that are located in the far north. February is generally the coldest of the year, dipping between -22 to -3°C.

I spent an astonishing week around Kebnekaise. Conditions were varied but thanks to Fred’s everlasting enthusiasm and knowledge of the area, we managed to lock in some memorable runs. The area has an incredible amount of possibilities; we could have stayed muuuch longer!
Fred is one of those who manage the fine balance between being the guide you trust and the guy you really enjoy to spend time with. By his down-to-earth and friendly way to treat his guests he creates a good platform for mountain adventures. At the same time he always knows where to find the best skiing, both in case of snow conditions and level of difficulty. We requested a glacier course for winter conditions, and ended up having fantastic days both skiing some amazing runs near Kebnekaise/Tarfala and learning a lot about rescue on glaciers. The area he picked was really an interesting area with possibilities both for skiing and glacier travel. Fred was a fantastic guide, knowing when to use the opportunity to get the best skiing and also managing to teach us what we needed. Thanks a lot Fred!
