Mountain Travel Guides
Mountain Guide Travel operate a unique heli-ski operation in Swedish Lapland. With a heliski area half the size of Austria and over 200 peaks to choose from, this is the largest wilderness area available for heliski in Western Europe. Thanks to the far north location the season starts in mid-March and runs until the end of May, with the last two weeks offering guests the unrivalled opportunity to heliski under a midnight sun!
Like all our operators, Mountain Guide travel offer a superior heliski experience with small groups (maximum 5), UIAGM/IFMGA qualified guides and modern, powerful helicopters. The program is equally suitable for skiers and snowboarders. The variety of landing options and terrain provides for all levels from first timers to experts. All safety equipment including shovels, transceivers, probes and backpacks are included.
Riksgransen is the base resort for guests and offers lift-served skiing including off-piste and ski touring for down days when the helicopter can’t fly. Three close by resorts offer further skiing options.
The ski touring routes take in the stunning scenery and wildlife of the area with ocean views of the local fjords. Alternative activities include cross-country skiing, dogsledding, snowmobiling and ice climbing.
