Åre / Östersund
New non-stop route from Helsinki to Åre! Book direct flights now!
SAS opens a new non-stop route in December from Helsinki to Åre Östersund Airport, only 50 minutes from the Åre ski resort.
Åre, in Jämtland Sweden, is full of life especially during the winter season. Popular Åre ski resort is the biggest in northern Europe. The Alpine World Ski Championships were held at Åre in 2007. World-class slopes offer challenges even for more experienced ones. And beginners don’t worry – there are slopes for every skill level.
Activities and after ski atmosphere
Åreskutan mountain rises up to 1420 meters above the sea level. Enjoy the spectacular scenery from the air. Zipline ropeway takes you 60 meters above the ground with speeds of up to 70 km/h.
If the ropeway sounds too exiting there are a wide range of other activities to try like snowmobile safaris, dog sledding, ice climbing and let’s not forget the after ski life. Åre village is known for its wild night life!
Åre Björnen is a bit further away from the bustle and it’s well suited for families with children. There are also easier slopes for children and beginners. Ski school is a fun way for children to learn and play at the same time.
