Helsingborg is a city and the seat of Helsingborg Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden and is the centre of an area in the Øresund region. Helsingborg is the closest point to Denmark, with the Danish city Elsinore (Helsingør) clearly visible on the other side of the strait of Øresund about 4 km to the west.

Historic Helsingborg, with its many old buildings, is a scenic coastal city. The buildings are a blend of old-style stone-built churches and a medieval fortress (Kärnan) in the city centre, which has stood guard in Helsingborg for over 600 years, and more modern commercial buildings. The streets vary from wide avenues to small alley-ways. Kullagatan, the main pedestrian shopping street in the city, was the first pedestrian shopping street in Sweden.

Helsingborg has an elite football (soccer) team, Helsingborgs IF. Their home stadium is Olympia. Henrik Larsson is the most famous of the club's former players.

Holidays in Sweden - Sweden Ski Resorts   by Isabella Olsen

Helsingborg Hotels

Sweden is a great destination for winter activities, particularly skiing. Indeed, Sweden is known for its great slopes. There are over twenty spectacular Sweden ski resorts, too, each nestled amidst a winter wonderland.
Of all the Sweden ski resorts, Are is the one you'll want to visit. Located in Jamtland and host to the 2007 Alpine World Championships, Are is considered the best alpine resort in Northern Europe. It is also numbered among the best ski resorts in the world alongside Aspen and St. Moritz.

For intermediate skiiers, Funasdalen ski resort is recommended. Funasdalen is Sweden's southernmost ski resort and is also the third largest one. With soft snow, steep slopes and a vast expanse of untouched snowy landscape, it's certainly worth a visit on your trip to Sweden.

You can also consider going to Riksgransen, which is considered one of the best Sweden ski resorts for intermediate skiing.

For beginner skiiers, on the other hand, Vallasen ski resort is the place to go. Just a few miles south of the city of Helsingborg, Vallasen is perfect for beginners because of its gentle slopes and soft snow. Its ski school also offers both private and group classes for those who want to learn to ski.

If you're bringing the entire family, then you might want to book your ski holidays at Idre Fjall. Aside from offering a variety of slopes for both experts and beginners, Idre Fjall is also known among the Sweden ski resorts as the best one when it comes to providing great food and entertainment. There are shows for adults, discos for teens and even story hours for kids.

Do you want to do more than just skiing? Then spend a few days at Hemavan. Hemavan offers an array of outdoor winter activities apart from skiing, such as riding a snowmobile or snow scooter, dog-sledding or fishing at Lake Tarnasjon.

These are just some of the popular Sweden ski resorts which make Sweden a great destination for ski holidays. To decide where you're staying, just consider the ages and skill levels of your family or group, along with your budget. 

Still having a hard time deciding? Then why not spend a few days in a number of ski resorts than just staying weeks in one? You're sure to have more fun and excitement - and the best ski holidays of all.
