Åre is one of the largest and most well-known ski areas in all of Scandinavia. The ski resort consists of the five sub-areas Duved, Tegefjäll, Rödkullen, Åre By and Åre Björnen.

Duved and Tegefjäll are the most accessible parts of the ski resort, and they are both quick and easy to reach from the valley. The chairlift carries skiers and snowboarders up the mountain here in less than five minutes. Queueing at lifts is also a rarity, and the runs – which are all blue or red – are usually relatively empty. Hence, Åre makes an excellent destination for families with children.

Åre By is the place to be for skiers who like to party. This part of the ski area is home to the kind of nightlife that is otherwise hard to find in the Sweden. However, there’s more to Åre By than just party. It also boasts a range of diverse runs as well as state-of-the-art lifts. Advanced skiers will particularly enjoy the numerous intermediate trails here.

If you want to go all the way to the top, but aren’t sure about tackling the red runs down on Åre By just yet, then head for the blue trail on the Rödkullen part of the mountain. You’ll find plenty of blue and green (very easy) runs in this area.

Åre Björnen is fantastic for families. This area is specially geared to the needs of parents and children. The runs here are almost exclusively intended for beginners and youngsters still finding their way on the snow.

Snowboarders and freestyle skiers can also look forward to a decent terrain park with a half pipe. This is a great place to practice new moves and tricks and show off your freestyle skills.

In total, Åre offers a whopping 26 restaurants across the entire ski area. There’s truly something for everyone here.

In the Duved sub-area, there’s a restaurant next to the Hamreliften and another one at the base station of the Dalliften. There’s even a barbecue area at the base station of the Torpliften.

If hunger strikes while you're at the Tegefjäll part of the mountain, you can take your pick between restaurants at the base and mountain station of Tegeliften lift. Further across, there are barbecue areas at the base and top station of Gunnilliften as well as at the base station of Fjällvallsliften.

Rödkullen and Åre By also feature a veritable smorgasbord of different dining facilities. Restaurants can be found at numerous lift stations both in the valley and up on the mountain, with the undoubted highlight being the Stormköket restaurant. Located at the highest point in the ski area, all meals here are served with a generous portion of stunning views on the side.

Families skiing in Åre Björnen can head for one of the child-friendly restaurants, such as Mr Bramwell’s at the top station of the Björnenliften.
