  Standing at favourite spot in Riksgränsen
by dave_21

Riksgränsen lies at the most northen Sweden right next to the Norweagan border. 30km from Narvik, Norway.
This magnificent area is truly unique. This is the area for Skiers, Snowboarders and hikers! This is also the place in Sweden who gets most snow. Every winter there are over 2,5m of snow and because of the Northen location the snow don't melts away. The ski slopes are open to the end of June, and it's located above the arctic cirkle and because of that you'll ski in midnight sun in June!
I have done this one time and that was a wonderful experience!
Hiking here is only possible in late Jult or august because of the amount of snow.
This is really something you should do if you searching for an exotic adventure in Sweden!

They also have exellent trails for those who would like to go hiking/trekking!
