Year-round activities 

Hit the slopes
One of Sweden's largest ski resorts, where the Alpine Ski World Cup was held in 2019, is located in Åre. With slopes that range from beginner to advanced, there is something for everyone to try. End the day with typical Swedish After-Ski.

Hop on the bike
As spring comes and the snow melts, the ski resort transforms. Recognized as one of the best in the world, Åre Bike Park is a great adventure for bikers of any level. Downhill, Cross country and maybe a swim-stop along the way - options are endless!

Water activities on Åresjön
In both summer and wintertime, the Åre lake and surrounding waters offers many activities such as river rafting and kayaking. When visiting during winter, take the opportunity to ice skate on the frozen lake or go ice fishing. 



Discover the culture of Åre

Visit the chocolate factory
Since 1991 the Åre Chocolate Factory has been hand crafting pralines, often with local ingredients. Indulge in their signature chocolate praline, or stay for a Swedish fika at their café.

Try the local cuisine
Restaurant options are plentiful in Åre, and menus are often locally inspired with ingredients from small-scale farmers and producers in the area. Don't forget to visit the local brewery and coffee roastery!

Unwind the Swedish way
While Åre is known as a destination for the outdoor enthusiast, it is also a perfect place to relax and unwind. Visit one of the many spa centers, take part of the Scandinavian sauna tradition or simply go for a hike and let nature sooth you.
