Our new Summit Hiking Experience 2024

Hiking has been a longstanding tradition in Riksgränsen. In 1943, three recurring guests at Riksgränsen established the Riksgränsen summit badge. The badge aimed to welcome all true mountain enthusiasts to sportingly excellent, interesting, and thrilling ski journeys, providing diverse opportunities to acquire the skills of skilled, enduring mountain skiers and mountaineers. Only one summit per hike counts, in accordance with the original rules from 1943, and you can collect your summits during unlimited years. When you have summited five different peaks, the badge is awarded at a ceremony at the summit.

Join us for an unforgettable hiking experience amidst the landscapes of northern Lapland. Discover the rich tradition of hiking in the region and earn Niehku's prestigious 5-summit badge by conquering five summits over 1300 metres or with a vertical drop of at least 800 metres, summer or wintertime.  To take part you need to be physically prepared for two long day hikes, 6-8 hours/day, with vertical drops up to 1100 metres. The terrain can be partly steep and rocky but will not include technical climbing; however, it will offer breathtaking views.

Kiruna Airport in Sweden is located about 140 kilometres from the Riksgränsen ski resort, and you can also fly to Harstad-Narvik Airport in Norway, which is about 85 kilometres from Riksgränsen. Or just take the train directly from Stockholm, Luleå, Kiruna, or Narvik. During the high season there is also a daily bus service from Kiruna and Narvik.



We’ll pack light and head straight out into a beautiful alpine wonderland, far from all roads and cleared trails. For a truly rare and remote adventure, our helicopters can transport you to pristine peaks where few have ever dared to venture.
