AreSweden

Visit one of Sweden’s most popular ski resorts with fantastic slopes and great outdoor activities all year round.

Are is a safe bet if you’re looking for a great holiday in Sweden. With hundreds of thousands visitors each year, Are is considered the only Swedish ski resort that can truly compete with the top resorts of the Alps. Most visitors will naturally be looking for exhilarating skiing, with Are registering the country’s highest vertical drop at 3,000 feet and the highest ski point at 4,200 feet above the sea level.

The first hotel in Are opened its doors to the public towards the end of the 19th century and the regional lift system, Are Bergbana, was inaugurated in 1910. Today, Are hosts several annual winter sport events and the resort is comprised of four villages that are split over two lift systems that will cater to different needs: Are By provides a good all-round experience with the area’s most challenging slopes; Are Bjornen is smaller and more geared towards families with young children and beginners.

In the winter, don’t miss the chance to head up to Areskutan with its breath-taking views. Aside from some of the best alpine skiing you’re likely find in any of the Nordic countries, Are will also offer cross country skiing as well as fun winter activities; go dog sledding with a guide or take a snowmobile for a quick spin. Afterwards, heat up with a hearty stew in one of the local restaurants, such as the quaint Buustamons Fjallgård, ideally located in a charming chalet right on the slopes.

If you want a day off and enjoy some serious R&R, Holiday Club Upplevelsebad & Saunaworld is a treat for all senses. Or book a tour to Tannforsen, one of the country’s most impressive water falls. Beautiful scenery and fantastic excursions apart, Are also offers a renowned after ski scene and surprisingly good shopping.

If you’re visiting Are in the summer there’s a wide range of activities to choose from; hiking, horseback riding, mountain climbing, water sports and other extreme adventures is on offer during the summer months.

With excellent skiing, beautiful landscapes and family friendly activities, as well as excellent restaurants, spas and nightclubs, it’s no wonder Are is a classic ski destination for Swedes.

Are is amazing - will keep returning. Holiday club is nice but we were disappointed on two elements: - house keeping- our room was only cleans once during our trip - cost of dining in Grow and he vegetarian option which was extremely expensive

Åre is a resort that we wanted to see for something different. It felt very much like it's where the Swede's will go skiing because it's local to them and easy to get to. We liked that it was quite authentic and Swedish feeling still.
