Åre tips for the almost teen!
Not a child and not a teen. Here’s our list 10 activities perfect for someone in between.
# 1 Adventure Pool Inside & Out
If you’re not afraid of cold water, Ullån’s natural water park is a real kick. Small pools and stone slabs eroded into slides, lined with plenty of solar thermal stones for sunbathing. For those not into cold water, there’s a waterslide and adventure pools at Holiday Club Sports & Swim World.
# 2 Downhill Mountain Biking
Ride down Mt. Åreskutan the best way ever. Get your gear on, warm-up in the green trails, then on to the blues, and so on. Everything you need for downhill biking can be found on the Biking Åre website.
# 3 Spa
# 4 White Water Rafting
# 5 Head to Rypetoppen
Just across the border in Norway is one of Norway’s largest climbing parks – Rypetoppen. The 60-mile car journey takes about an hour.
# 6 Eat Ice Cream
# 7 Canoeing or Kayaking
# 8 Hang out in Ullådalen
Pack a picnic and head to Ullådalen. Take Trail 203 towards Mullfjället for a bit and enjoy the view. Take a dip in one of Ullån’s natural potholes or suntan on the side. If nothing else, lie down, watch the clouds blow by, listen to the water and enjoy nature.
# 9 Swedish Fika
Sit at a café and discuss the essentials of life while enjoying something super tasty. There are loads of cafés in Åre, so check them out till you find the one for you.
# 10 Shopping
Last, but not least. If money’s burning a hole in your wallet or credit card a shopping trip in the village will sort it out. Most shops are located around the square and in Åre Central Station.
