If you’re after a white Christmas then a ski holiday in Sweden is a fantastic choice, with fabulous snow and skiing conditions, plus enchanting scenery to really get you in the Christmas spirit.
Christmas Skiing with skiSweden
Sweden’s northerly location, reliable weather and great snow record mean that many of our favourite resorts guarantee snow from the middle of December. That means you can book your Christmas skiing holiday with confidence, and all you need to do is look forward to having a fantastic time. As well as reliable snow, when you book with skiSweden you also get our expertise and support throughout booking, before you travel, and 24hour contact during your holiday.
Ski in Åre or Sälen this Christmas
Two of our favourite Swedish ski resorts are Åre or Sälen and they both offer a snow guarantee for your Christmas skiing holiday. Åre Village, with its vibrant atmosphere, is especially good for couples, older families or groups and has extensive skiing across some stunning terrain. The ski school location in Åre means the resort is most suitable for people who have skied before. For beginner skiers and young families we suggest the rolling fells of Sälen Lindvallen, perfect for a relaxed and festive escape.

Husky sledding is an iconic part of Scandinavian culture and is a great way to experience the stunning scenery from a different perspective. Husky sledding adventures are available in both Åre and Sälen, so speak to your skiSweden expert for more information and to book.
A guided snowmobiling trip is a safe and fun activity for the whole family. If you have a UK driving license you can drive a snowmobile through the clearly marked tracks in the areas around the resorts. Snowmobiles seat 2, so non-drivers can take the rear seat, and there’s usually a space behind the guide if you’ve got uneven numbers.
Another iconic Scandinavian pastime is cross-country skiing, and it really is an enjoyable way to immerse yourself in the local nature and culture. Lessons and equipment hire are widely available in advance and in resort, so contact your skiSweden expert for more information.
