The Åre valley
Live your life with passion
Åre is a vibrant mountain village with a rich history, where you can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities, such as world-class alpine skiing, ski touring, hiking, fishing and biking, as well as hospitable restaurants, bars and coffee shops.
Two thousand people call Åre home all year round, and the village is growing as more entrepreneurs, free spirits, artists and professionals choose to locate their homes and hearts in the Åre valley.
During the winter season, around 50,000 visitors from all over the world come to Åre to experience its unique environment. Alpine world cups are held here every winter and, so far, the village has hosted three alpine skiing world championships.
Åre has developed a unique sense of entrepreneurship, cooperation and business: making the most of every opportunity and creating something new from what you’re offered. Surviving year-round, being open to the outside world, taking pride in success and daring to aim higher is the ethos of the village. New and expectant entrepreneurs move here for the lifestyle and an office with a view of the mountains.
In 2019, Åre was named Sweden’s best municipality for new businesses for the second time.
Åre is 620 km northwest of Stockholm. The closest city is Östersund, 100 km east of Åre. Trains from Stockholm and Östersund stop right in the heart of the village. Norway is just 50 km to the west and a journey of 150 km takes you to Trondheim, where there is an international airport. Trondheim is also home to Norway’s biggest university of technology.
