Sälens Högfjällshotell is an exclusive resort located in the midst of the snowy slopes of Sälen, the biggest tourist resort in Scandinavia and a hub for skiers, with more than 100 ski slopes and an extensive snow system in place. This iconic hotel offers world-class food, accommodation and activities in beautiful settings, with a legacy steeped in elegance and royal entertainment.
Sälens Högfjällshotell is the ideal destination for all ages, easily reached by car or plane, thanks to the nearby Scandinavian Mountains Airport. Open in the months between December and April, it offers all the best winter activities in one space. ”The hotel was founded in 1937 by Norwegian entrepreneur J W Klüver, who had a dream of building a luxurious high mountain resort in Sälen. To this day his legacy rests intact, with a hotel that provides a unique experience – it’s a luxurious getaway for people who want everything close at hand, from world-class skiing to quality dining and nightlife, with the historic elegance maintained in a modern way,” says Martin Sahlberg, Operative Manager.
The hotel has numerous restaurants, bars and cafés with different cuisines as well as children’s slopes and a number of cross-country tracks right on its doorstep while a shuttle bus provides transfers to another skiing area nearby. In addition, guests can enjoy countless in-house activities, after-skiing nightlife and other events throughout the winter season. Guests are also spoilt for choice in terms of accommodation, with options ranging from single rooms to superior double rooms, apartments and suites in various forms.
”Winter is where the excitement begins. In addition to the amazing skiing this area provides, with fantastic tracks right outside our door, we have a packed schedule for the upcoming months and we are stepping it up to provide an unforgettable season for our guests,” says Sahlberg. “The usual activities remains: dog-sledding tours, yoga, snowmobile, skiing, spa, gym, cinema and kids’ activities, and then we top this up with exciting one-off events. Big concerts, wine makers dinners, DJ’s, live bands and much more is in the diary.”
The hotel has proved popular among families, couples, friends and corporate groups since the beginning, and with something for everyone wrapped in a luxurious environment and surrounded by snowcapped mountains, it will undoubtedly provide the perfect winter getaway for many more years to come.
