Behind The Beauty Of The Northern Lights


Listed under Pure Powder’s top heli skiing destinations are those that, in addition to world-class heli-skiing, grant you the amazing opportunity to capture the enchanting Aurora Borealis. These ethereal lights have been viewed across the night sky and come in a vibrant range of greens, yellow, purple, and blue – creating a mesmerising dance that has a hypnotising effect.


Alaska, the Swedish Lapland, and Iceland are known to be perfect destinations for viewing this celestial phenomenon. Not only do you get to enjoy your time in the snow through exclusive helicopter skiing tours, but your memories are further enriched by the Northern Lights, as well as the majestic landscapes surrounding you. Miles away from the city lights, visitors can fully immerse themselves in a winter wonderland and revel in an opportunity to escape the busyness of everyday life.


Abisko Mountain Lodge


Located in the heart of the Abisko Mountain range, your stay at the iconic Abisko Mountain Lodge will bring you sweet memories and joyous times that you will surely treasure for a lifetime. This lodge, located in Sweden’s north-western region, features an untold number of heli skiing opportunities in an enchanting, powdered landscape – with a snow-covered expanse that is comparable to the size of Austria.


Abisko Mountain Lodge captures a warm and welcoming atmosphere, which can be felt as soon as you walk through the front door. Helicopter skiing season generally begins during spring, creating a sensation of cosiness and vibrancy amongst the guests. Speaking of, all guests are encouraged to unwind next to the wood-burning stoves, where the conversations flow as easily as the wine, and people eagerly exchange their skiing highlights.


The Abisko Mountain Lodge is also home to Brasserie Fjällköket, where your tastebuds will be blessed with flavours beyond your imagination. When you look around you, you will start to notice the many snow-kissed peaks and the abundant powdered playground just waiting to be skied. Tree skiing is usually a rarity in Sweden; however, one will find high Alpine terrain that offers thrilling descents and breathtaking views at every turn.


If the weather conditions do not permit you to enjoy the snow, which is unlikely, the long daylight hours of Lapland make it easy to make up for lost powder time and maximise daylight hours by enjoying some of the other activities available at the lodge. After an exhilarating heli skiing day, find comfort in Abisko Mountain Lodge and take the time to unwind and recharge. Whether you take part in a nourishing culinary experience, enjoy the rustic sauna, or simply sit peacefully and admire the panoramic views of Lapporten – guests are highly encouraged to make themselves at home amidst the tranquillity of the mountains.
