The Ski Resort

© Skistar Åre

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. As you’d expect, the combination of these factors makes Åre 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 difficult to find in the rest of Sweden. However, there’s more to Åre By than just party – it also boasts a range of varied runs as well as state-of-the-art lifts. Advanced skiers will particularly enjoy the numerous intermediate trails here.

If you want to scale the top-out point of the ski area at 1420 metres 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) rated runs in this area.

Åre Björnen is fantastic for families. This area is specially geared up to the needs of parents and children, and as you’d expect, 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 – complete with half pipe. This is a great place to practice new moves and tricks and show off your freestyle skills.

On Mountain Dining

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 as well as another eatery at the base station of the Dalliften. There’s even a barbecue area at the base station of the Torpliften.

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

Rödkullen and Åre By are also blessed with an array of different eateries. Restaurants are housed within 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.

Activities

Away from the slopes, visitors shouldn’t miss the chance to try dogsledding – sweeping through the snowbound countryside behind a pack of huskies is a truly unforgettable experience. In Ristafallet, braver visitors also have the opportunity to try their hand at ice climbing.

Après-Ski and Nightlife

Party animals love Åre. The town is known in Sweden for its lively nightlife, and it’s widely considered one of the nation’s top party hotspots. The main street in the centre of Åre is the place to be after nightfall with parties run long into the early hours every night here.

Getting here

By car: If you’re travelling by car, take the E14 Östersund-Trondheim, turn off at the Lundsgardsvägen exit and follow signs for Åre.
