Åre's Best Beaches
It may not be the beaches that make us love summertime in Åre as much as we do, however, when the sun heats up the valley a good session at the beach and a swim in the water is a necessity.
A refreshing dip in a mountain lake, river or pothole is a possibility 24 hours a day for those who don’t mind cooler waters or for those looking to cool down after a sweaty activity. But when it gets hot in Åre, it’s gets really hot then it’s nice to spend a longer time in the water. Here are some tips on easily accessible and beautiful swimming spots.
Åre beach is a nice and sandy beach right next to Holiday Club with ice cream and snacks nearby. Another popular beach with long shallow waters is located at the boathouse, directly to the left after the car bridge over the railroad.
A black fine sandy beach with shallow waters allows the temperature to go well above 20. A favourite among families with children. Drive from Åre towards Storlien, after about 22 km you’ll see the beach on the right side of E14.
A black coarse sandy beach where the ultimate beach photos are taken with Mt. Åreskutan in the background. Drive towards Järpen from Åre, turn off at Slagsån and look for the sign towards Helgesjön in the woods. If you come to Åre Kafferosteri you have driven a few kilometres too far. The beach is approximately 23 kilometres from Åre.
The favourite spot for Åre locals and a natural waterpark. Small pools and stones eroded into slides and sun beds surround the river. The best bathing spot is downstream from Ullådalsstugan, approximately 7 kilometres from Åre.
A long sandy beach with a beautiful view of Kall. Drive to Björnen and continue towards Huså. Shortly after you turn left after Fröåvägen towards Huså you’ll see the beach on the right side about 19 kilometres from Åre.
At the end of the road past Vålådalen lies a super cosy and sandy beach at Nulltjärn. A little more comfort with barbecue area and outhouse. Drive east on E14, turn down towards Undersåker and take the road towards Vålådalen. Once in Vålådalen, continue straight on the gravel road. Nulltjärn is located approximately 43 kilometres from Åre.
An easily accessible sandy beach surrounded by the mountains. Drive east on E14, turn down towards Undersåker and take the road towards Vålådalen. The bathing area is located on the right side of the road directly after the bridge over Storån. Located about 30 kilometres from Åre.
