Åre Summer news 2023

Meteorologists are predicting an unusually hot Swedish summer in 2023, so what could be more refreshing than vacationing in the mountains? Hike and bike in higher terrain, take a cooling dip in a mountain tarn, take the cable car up to the top of Mt. Åreskutan and throw snowballs. End the day with homemade gelato at an outdoor restaurant in the village. Here we have collected everything that is new in Åre for the summer, so take the opportunity to explore during the holidays.

Start of the season!

On the weekend of June 9-11, Åre Bike Park opens both for lift-carried downhill biking and trail biking on the trails in Björnen, the summer equivalent of the “ski test weekend” in a mini format! The hiking trails also open for the season. This will be a weekend filled with biking and fun social program items. Saturday offers a downhill competition in the Lilla Blå trail and on Sunday all children can compete and get a medal in the skills training area in Björnen. At Stjärnliften you will be able to test the season’s novelties in the form of bikes, equipment and other things.

Newly built bike trails

Late last fall, two new trails were completed in the Åre Bike Park Trail in Björnen, which offers new biking experiences this season.

Hackan (trail 14) – A speedy red trail with technical elements in connection with Graniten (trail 7). Here, a nice flow is mixed with slightly tighter and messier sections. For those of you who are looking for a real like-rocket on Instagram, on this trail you will find Björnen’s most photo-friendly jump with Lake Åresjön as a backdrop.

Järnet (trail 17) – A machine-dug trail that goes both up and down with the feeling of a singletrack. Järnet is a good option when you want to get out to the outer trail system in the Bike Park Trail, if you choose this trail you get a slightly easier alternative to the start of the trail Mineralen (trail 2). All trails in the Åre Bike Park Trail can be found here >>

Among the downhill trails, the flow/jump trail Cobra (trail 36) has been extended and made 1.8 kilometers longer. The grading is blue but with some alternative kicks that allow everyone to find their own enjoyment on the trail or progress at their own pace. The infamous stalwart Shimano (trail 15) has been redesigned from the ground up, a novelty that many biking enthusiasts are very much looking forward to testing this summer! Lots of jumps and nice curves all the way from the top of the mountain to the village square are to be expected. Find your favorite among all the downhill trails here >>

This summer, all lifts are open in the evening until 8 pm during week 30, i.e. July 23-29. Then the Kabinbanan cable car, Stjärnliften and Hummelliften run extra long and make it possible to experience Åreskutan during bright, Swedish summer evenings. Maybe time for an outdoor dinner on the mountain? Evening dip in one of the lakes?

Hike in new yet historic tracks

Åre’s perhaps most popular hiking trail around Totthummeln has been carefully restored for the summer to reduce the wear and tear on the surrounding nature. The trail has been drained so that the surface is kept drier and more durable. The trail has also been given portals with swing doors that show that it is only for hiking. You can find the trail around Totthummeln here >>

Another trail progress is the historic gravel road Gamla Fröåvägen, from Björnen to the historic copper mining area Fröå Gruva past the beautifully situated Fröåtjärn, which has been upgraded to become an accessible trail where everyone should be able to get around. Now it’s easier to roll both prams and wheelchairs here. Along the road, the barbecue areas at the shore of the pond have also been restored. Take a trip here and take a dip with a view of Åreskutan this summer! Here you will find the trail Gamla Fröåvägen >>

Around the cable car’s mountain station up on Åreskutan, a wide wooden span is being built to be able to easily get around the top of the ski lift and enjoy the mile-long view. It is a 300 meter long walk together with a viewing platform with map image where peaks all around are distinguished.

Lots of summer events

In July this year, it is an all-time high for events in Åre, when the village is visited by the orienteering event O-Ringen, the sailing Nationals in Tvåkrona as well as the classics Åre Bike Festival, Åre Golf week and more. Something for all tastes and interests! You can find the full list of bigger events here >>

The Fjällmaraton week rounds out this year’s program with a range of activities for the audience. At the finish area in Ottsjö, there will be an even more festive feeling this year with an obstacle course, fire show and outdoor cooking for the whole family. At Lake Ottsjön you will find a newly built raft and SUP boards to borrow for a nice swim after the day’s exertions. Fjällmaraton >>

The summer’s Åre Extreme Week offers a new sub-competition that can create recognition among many. Swedish National Championships in the event Idiot Intervals will be held in the best place on Åre square on Friday, June 30 at 4:00-6:00 p.m. The Idiot exercise may not need to be introduced more in detail, the question is: Will we see you there? Registration and more info >>

Outdoor pride Åre premieres on August 18-20. The event aims to open up the outdoor world to more diversity, with activities such as biking, hiking, paddling, live music and much more. It will be a unique weekend, for you as an LGBTQI person or you who share these values and long to meet like-minded people with an interest in outdoor life. Don’t miss the pride parade on August 19 with start and finish in the middle of Åre. Learn more from the organizer Fjällanda >>

Åre Hembygdsgård

The climbing park in Björnen is growing

Outings and activities

The Åre beach and marina area has undergone a gradual renovation over the course of a couple of years and is now in good shape for the summer. Along the promenade there is a bathing jetty, skate park, sunbeds, barbecues, outdoor gym, kayak rentals, beach cafe, boules courts and much more. Here it is simply easy to relax on a nice summer day. The restoration of this beach area was financed through crowdfunding among Åre villagers, companies and visitors.

The cozy visitor destination and homestead farm Åre Hembygdsgård gets new managers this summer, when Ida Björses and Anna-Maria Eriksson take over the place with new plans for craft courses and flatbread baking in addition to a summer cafe, flea market and workshops. Genuine meets creative!

Explore Åre has built a new paintball park in Brattland east of Åre. Åreskutan’s Paintballpark is now on a new exciting venue with a more hilly playing field and new fun obstacles.

The climbing park in Åre Björnen gets the addition of a new course at the same time as a completely new section for tree climbing opens up. There you climb up trees using a harness and ledges based on your own ability.

Hike and make Excursions

There are plenty of nice hiking trails in and around Åre. Many trails are hilly and a little more demanding around Mt. Åreskutan, the lifts here are a good help. In Södra Årefjällen – Vålådalen, Edsåsdalen, Ottsjö and Trillevallen – you can find several trails in various environments and degrees of difficulty, more information is found here.

Take the Kabinbanan (Cable car) or one of the lifts to quickly get up Mt. Åreskutan and enjoy the mile-wide views. This summer, a completely new lookout point is being built at the top of Kabinbanan with an accessibility-adapted stretch in wooden material. This will make it easier for people with disabilities or with prams to get around and enjoy the view from the mountain. Some other trips to do around Åre are to visit Tännforsen or one of our other waterfalls, discover handicrafts or visit the historic Fröå Copper Mine.

Eat well

The ski resort Åre has been transformed into a summer destination with a rich selection of restaurants, bars and cafés. Nowadays, it is not difficult to find a good place for an Après-Bike, Après-Hike, Après-Swim or whatever the days have to offer. If you stroll around the square, there are outdoor cafés in both sunny and shady locations. Stop for lunch in the mountains at one of the summer open restaurants in the slopes. For this summer, Hotel Granen is completely renovating its restaurant, stop by to try what the new kitchen has to offer, or find a good rosé in their award-winning wine cellar. Find all the restaurants in Åre here >>

Rent or buy equipment

If you have read this far, you’ll have understood two things:

1: For those who like an active holiday, summer in Åre has a lot to offer.
2: There’ll be a lot of equipment to pack… Even the strongest SUV can fall under the weight of bicycles, kayaks, skateboards, tents, hiking backpacks…

Keep calm, it is actually possible to travel light as well. There are plenty of rentals for everything from bikes and kayaks to sleeping bags, outdoor kitchens, hiking boots and clothes. Just remember to book your equipment well in advance and you’ll get whatever you need. And if something essential was forgotten when packing, you can find it in one of the well-equipped stores that have selected the best gear and can help you find whatever you need.
