Niehku Mountain Villa was conceived by a mixed group of dreamers and adventurers who share a genuine passion for Riksgränsen, skiing and the great outdoors.



Niehku Mountain Villa’s major strength is our fantastic staff. The best staff are those with the biggest heart for Niehku. Combined with solid professional skills, we intend to deliver a warm and personal environment. All our staff is handpicked for the mission, ensuring the food, beverage and accommodation meet the same high standards as the skiing and outdoor experiences.



Following many years on the international guide scene, specialising mainly in heli-skiing at some of the world’s most remote, unexplored locations, co-founder and hotel manager Johan “Jossi” Lindblom has now returned home to his roots and the familiar mountain landscapes around Riksgränsen. Johan’s ambition is to harness the years of experience he’s gained as a travelling IFMGA mountain guide, to create fantastic adventures for the guests of Niehku Mountain Villa.

Our heliskiing guides are all internationally certified IFMGA mountain guides, with several years’ experience of heliskiing and skiing in the mountains of Swedish Lapland. For ski touring you will experience the beautiful summits with either a IFMGA mountain guide or one of our local mountain leaders, who know the area better than most.

In the summer our experienced hiking guides or IFMGA mountain guides will take you to the most hidden and remote trails and places.
