Åre Ski Holidays

If you've skied a lot and think you've done it all then check out Åre. I love the delicious cuisine, the designer styling, and the fact that the Swedes adore the Brits. It's even close enough for a long weekend.

Rising above Lake Åresjön, Scandinavia’s largest ski resort, Åre, is great for escaping the crowds.

With more than 1,000 acres of terrain, Åre (pronounced aura) is a world-class resort. Children under eight ski for free and the tree-lined slopes are uncrowded, even during peak weeks.

Åre’s main ski area has lots of variety, while Björnen’s runs are best for beginners. For intermediates, the rolling slopes in Duved are excellent, and there’s some great off-piste to be had with a guide.

The historic lakeside town offers everything from zip wires and a chocolate factory, to a distillery and live bands at the weekends. And Åre’s fifty-odd restaurants are reliably good, from the burgers at Broken to fine dining at Supper.

Ski holidays in Åre are truly unique. A temperature inversion can make the mountain warmer than the village, and the slopes are floodlight until 8pm. This far north, short December days are followed by long daylight hours in spring – an effect that’s even more apparent on our Åre and Arctic Ski Safari.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

We had a fabulous time in Åre. Everything fell into place - the weather, the snow, the food, the accommodation and the people. 10 out of 10. It was even better than when we went to Japan skiing! (booked with you).

22/04/2016 Rebecca Oliver

Good variety of runs for a range of abilities with some good snow parks and ski cross. The ski school was very good as well with some lovely restaurants on the mountain sides.

22/04/2016 Sian Westbury

Excellent but expensive as most of Sweden probably is. However very well stocked supermarket over the road if you self cater.
