Overview

The resort stretches for 10km along a frozen lake in a beautiful setting amongst the mountains and snow-covered forests. The skiing is suited to beginners and intermediates with a good-sized ski area. The other attraction of Åre is the amazing 185miles of cross-country trails, some of which are floodlit. Boarders are well catered for with good varied terrain plus the added benefit of three snow parks.
