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 seven 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 found - hiring a guide will mean you find the best spots!

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 floodlit 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.

Call 01273 224068 for advice from our ski specialists.

Good move up in skiing level and extent after Trysil Norway last year. Great no queues for lifts. Boys enjoyed off piste in trees.

Åre is a superb place for skiing for every ability - great for long days out, be they on piste, off piste, all-mountain, cross country, you name it - the variety is superb. And when we were there, it was very quiet - at times we had the slopes to ourselves (or it certainly felt it). Very few queues, all very civilised. Was expecting Sweden to be a typically expensive Scandanavian experience but was surprised - all was pretty good and reasonable. And the welcome, the quality and atmosphere was great.

Great for intermediate skiers (us) - lots of long, wide runs. Minimal queues, excellent facilities (we loved the 'canteen' and bbq area at Rodkullen). Two of our party booked private lessons and they thought these very good value. We stayed at the Morviksgarden apartments in Are By. Fabulous, well-equipped apartment. Felt 'luxury' standard, without the usual accompanying price tag. Very warm and comfortable.
