The top 5 ski hotels in Åre, Sweden

Åre’s finest stays for a Swedish ski holiday

Åre is the largest mountain resort in northern Europe. The alpine destination has a long history as a tourist destination dating back to visiting pilgrims in the Middle Ages. Today, it is Sweden’s cosiest, trendiest and most exclusive mountain village. The ski area is located on Åreskutan with its highest peak at 1420 metres high, but the highest lift ends at 1260 meters, so the top can only be reached with a snowmobile lift. Åre consists of several different areas for those who want to ski: Åreskutan, Åre Björnen, Tegefjäll and Duved. With a total piste length of 95 kilometres, around 100 slopes, 40 lifts, almost 50 restaurants and over 30 bars and nightclubs, it is undoubtedly Sweden’s number-one ski resort.

Copperhill Mountain Lodge

Located in Åre, Northern Europe’s largest and Sweden’s most upscale ski resort, Copperhill Mountain Lodge sits far up the mountain with a lift right outside the door. Completely enveloped in nature, the 112-room property gives a true sense of freedom and closeness to nature. The cosy restaurant serves up Nordic fare, and there’s a stunning spa with an indoor and outdoor swimming pool overlooking the Åreskutan mountain area.

Hotel Åregården

When the railway came to town in 1882, connecting Åre with the Norwegian city of Trondheim, it sparked the first tourism in the alpine area. A few years later, in 1895, Åre’s first hotel opened. Despite a name change (from Hotel Åreskutan to Hotel Åregården), the hotel lives on and has preserved all of its unique character and charm. Housed in a green timber villa, this 54-room property has become a melting pot for visitors and locals alike, who flock here to enjoy the wine bar, the two cocktail bars and the cosy restaurant after long days on the slopes. There are also a number of self-service apartments available for larger parties of guests.

Hotell Fjällgården

One of few ski in ski outs in Åre, Hotell Fjällgården is located along the Fjällgårdsexpressen chair lift. The atmospheric mountain lodge, which has a total of 64 rooms and suites, was inaugurated by His Royal Highness Prince Carl of Sweden and Norway in 1910. After a day of skiing, head to the relax and spa area for some TLC for your limbs and muscles, followed by dinner around the fireplace – we recommend opting for a nostalgic cheese fondue. Hotell Fjällgården has teamed up with Hyundai to offer guests the complimentary use of cars equipped with rooftop cargo carriers from Thule to further explore Åre’s slopes.

Buustamons Fjällgård

Buustamons Fjällgrd, the highest hotel in Åre, is located at 732 meters above sea level in the middle of the slopes. There are 12 individually decorated rooms. A long-standing favourite for filling up on heat and energy has been Buustamon, a ski-in restaurant between Rödkullen and Ullådalen. Expect a crackling log fire, solid timber interiors, plenty of rag rugs and hearty Jämtland food on the plates.
