Hiking in Åre

Photo: Anette Andersson

Mt. Åreskutan offers easy access to hiking with magnificent views and the village has all the comfort you could imagine. 

The hiking trails start from the central square, but if you don’t want to walk the entire way, take the lift and start your hike from there. The trails are varied, ranging from simple one-hour tours to more challenging day trips. After the day’s walk, take the lift back to the village again for an after-hike on a sunny outdoor patio and dinner at one of our renowned restaurants. After dinner, crawl into a nice hotel bed for a good night’s sleep, then you’ll start all over again the next day.


Hiking Trails

Hiking on the Mt. Åreskutan is varied in length and severity – ranging from shorter trips that suit the whole family to more challenging hikes for advanced hikers. Whatever your goal and level of hiking, enjoy the clear mountain air and the beautiful views stress free.

In our app Åre Trails (App Store & Google Play) and on the Åre Trails website, all hiking trails are included with number, name, length, altitude, approximate time, difficulty, and some general information about the character of the trail. Everything you’ll need to know.


Carry a light backpack

Walking on Mt. Åreskutan does not require large heavy backpacks, but there are some necessities you should carry with you. If you’re on a longer trip, further away from the village, coffee and supplementary energy in your backpack is one of them and don’t forget to fill up with cold water from the mountain streams.

If you do not want to pack a bag, BaseCamp in Kabinbanan’s peak station serves simpler ready meals, hot dogs, pastries and beverages. At Mt. Åreskutan’s top station 1420 m.a.s.l is Sweden’s highest-rated café Toppstugan where waffles are a real classic! Follow trail 214B.

The weather can change quickly so always make sure you pack a wind and water resistant jacket, a warm sweater and fluids. Here you’ll find a more complete list of the right equipment.



Take a lift back to the village after your hike (if you do not want to go off course) and have a nice afternoon and evening at your own pace.

For more enjoyable activities, enjoy relaxing spa treatments, cool drinks at outdoor patios, paddling SUP, a coffee break or stroll around the shops throughout the village.

If you have loads of energy left, try downhill mountain biking, kayaking, ziplining or take a refreshing dip in Lake Åresjön.
