Activities, Culture, Food, Kids, Music & Entertainment

Midsummer in Åre can be celebrated traditionally, or according to your own wishes. Maybe pack the mandatory pickled herring in your backpack and lace up your boots and take a hike on the mountain, or find a lovely rapid to settle down at with a tasty midsummer picnic?

A traditional midsummer can be experienced both at the homestead Åre Hembygdsgård and at the excursion site Fröå Gruva and there is a café at each of those locations, see their respective programs below.

Midsummer at Fröå Gruva

Friday 21/6
11.00 Tractors with leafed wagons depart from Björnen
12.00 Dance around the midsummer pole with Karin & Per, candy rain and games for children, flatbread baking

Midsummer at Åre Hembygdsgård

Thursday 20/6 at 18.00
The pole is leafed, join in and help tie wreaths, please bring flowers and secateurs.

Friday 21/6 at 1 p.m
Traditional midsummer celebration with ring dance, duck race and coffee.

The meadow flowers flourish in abundance at this time of year, so decorate with wreaths and bouquets, that’s an important part of the Swedish tradition. However, we cannot control the weather, so pack sunglasses, a down jacket and rain gear to wear over summer dresses and shorts, just in case.
