Fjällmaraton Winter April 20

Have you ever wondered what the Fjällmaraton looks like during the winter months? To celebrate the 20th edition of the main race in 2024, Fjällmaraton offers two new experiences. In the spring of 2024, the Fjällmaraton Winter takes place, an experience race with two distances on packed snow in the classic Fjällmaraton landscape. The course takes you from lake to mountain and opens up a new perspective on the running season. Preliminary course stretches will be two distances, one over the marathon distance of 42K and a gentler one over about 10K. In August you can redo the circuit again during the night, more about that further down… Fjällmaraton Winter >>

Åre Sessions – April 25 – 28

A festival where music and ski culture meet, framed by one of the country’s most beautiful environments. Åre Sessions premiered in 2017, and has since been part of the big season-ending weekend in Åre. The festival takes place on several stages and venues around Åre – from music stages on the ski slopes to the large arena in the Holiday Club hotel. With previous artists such as The Hives, Veronica Maggio, Hellacopters and Oskar Linnros, the music program is built around the top acts of the Nordic music scene. Just as important as the music is the festival’s activity program, where festival visitors are offered activities such as yoga, ski touring, downhill cycling and ski school. And the best of all: at Åre Sessions, your SkiPass works as your festival ticket. Åre Sessions >>
