Are Holidays: An Overview

Åre is populated by weekending and uber-glamorous Stockholmers, here as much for the nightlife as the skiing. Not that the skiing should be sniffed at - there is something for everyone here, and the Alpine World Championships schussed into town recently for a slalom event.

Harriet and Flora are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • It's the closest you'll get to a North American ski experience in Europe

Are: the Detail

Away from the main slopes around 4,700ft Mount Åreskutan there is also some extremely picturesque forest skiing down to a vast frozen lake. The alternative activities, such as dog-sledding, snowmobiling and meeting the indigenous Saami people are excellent and no-one should leave without experiencing that most Swedish of traditions, the sauna and hot tub combo.

Original Highlight

You get a quick Swedish lesson thrown in for good measure: Åre is pronounced ‘oh-reh’, NOT ‘r’.
