"Summer or winter - anything goes!" Åre by Sjalen
Åre Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 34 photos
I cannot think of another Swedish place that has it ALL the way Åre does. In winter, it is a bustling ski resort, hosting World Cup downhill and other events (2007 World Championships) as well as playing host to loads of Stockholmers and others wanting to show off on the slopes. In summer, it has a different atmosphere altogether, as half the ski villages are closed and the village is calm and full of people enjoying a climb up the majestic Åreskutan or walks in the surroundings. The snowmobile tracks on the lake are gone and it is now glittering invitingly to motor boats, whilst on Renfjället above, reindeer go grazing, escaping the worst of mosquito pestering further down on the fell. Come here whatever the season and whatever your preference, and experience a place full of natural beauty, friendliness and good highland food.
