House tour - From the 1100s to the present

The tourism destination Åre has evolved in a racing pace the last century. What many don’t know is that between the modern new constructions, the boiling entrepreneurship and adrenaline thirsty guests a small peasant village still hides. Our history is an important part of our future development. Come along on a house tour in Åre and experience some of the local cultural history through the oldest still remaining buildings that still are an important part of the village.

The Åre House Tour has 25 marked stops on the map and is about an hour’s walk on smooth flat asphalt and gravel roads. A two kilometre long tour and a lot of Åre history. Take trail 231. The trail is clearly described in the digital guide Historic houses – Your guide to historic houses in Åre. Follow the guided tour online and read up on the houses as you stroll around. The guide contains older pictures and descriptions of the buildings along the way so it can be a bit of fun to have in your hand to compare then and now.

TIPS: To really see all the history that lives in Åre’s oldest buildings, book a guided tour with Maria Wilhelmsson at Morrvikja. Marias ancestors have farmed the land in the valley since generations, herded their animals on the hillsides and filled up their food storages with the local produce.
