This is a great ski adventure that few people have heard about and done. For 9 days, we’ll be skiing in Kebnekaise (2106 m), the highest mountain in Sweden.
This peak lays in the Swedish Lapland, also known as ‘the land of the midnight sun’ and one of the last wild areas in Europe. Lapland is the northernmost province of the country, with mountains that don’t even have a name on the maps today.
Its wonderful arctic landscape reminds alpine areas, with glaciers, long and steep slopes and sharp ridges. All this provides a great variety of options for a fantastic skiing.
There are more than a hundred peaks, all covered in snow. Because of this, it’s a perfect place for a ski touring week, where we can discover unknown, wild and remote valleys that only locals know about.
During this trip, we’ll spend the night in traditional Swedish mountain huts, where we’ll cook our own evening food. We’ll also go to continental mountain lodges, offering simple meals.
Our main objective is to enjoy both skiing and the arctic landscape. Because of that, we’ll travel light, with only a small pack.
In addition, we will use an alpine ski touring setup, binding and skins that will let you to hike with a free-heel upwards.
Each day will start very early. Actually, we’ll be hiking up and skiing down for 6-10 hours. It will be intense, so you should have a good level of fitness. Nevertheless, there’ll be free time in the afternoon to enjoy the scenery, put your clothes to dry and have a little rest.
Below, you will find a typical program for a week. You should be aware there might be changes due to weather or snow conditions. Because of this we may take alternative routes or spend the night in different huts.

You need to have a good level of cardiovascular fitness since it is an intense week with many meters up and down to cover every day. It is suitable for skiers who have previous experience of backcountry and multi-day ski touring skiing, in order to be able to cope with variable off-piste snow conditions. Of course if you feel you lack some of those experiences or uncertain of your own level, please feel free to contact us. I'll do my best to give you the best experience possible.
This ski tour is suitable for the later part of the season due to longer days and milder temperatures. From the beginning of April until the beginning of May is the best time of the year. This is a wonderful time in the Scandinavian mountains where the very cold and dark winter has left and the Sun slowly returns. It is not uncommon that we often enjoy powder skiing the whole April and as we come into May it starts to transform to spring snow on south facing aspects together with the arrival of the Midnight Sun.
There might be changes in the program due to weather or snow conditions. Because of this we may take alternative routes or spend the night in different huts.
