Are in Summer?

I'm from Alaska. My mother and I are going to visit Are this summer because that is where my great, great, great, great, great grandparents are from. I think they lived on the lake before there even was an established town. Anyway, is there anything to do in Are during the summer? Can I rent a car in Ostersund and drive to Are if I have a U.S. driver's license? How do people usually get to Are? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are is reached either from Ostersund Airport or Trondheim Airport (Norway) - there are more flights to choose from to Trondheim Airport, while Ostersund Airport is closer (30min shorter driver according to Google Maps). Car rental available at both airports. There are trains from (close to) both airports to Are, and also buses.

Most rental companies say that a International Drives Permit is highly recommended, but as this mainly is a translation of your drivers license I doubt you'll need it.

Are in summer is hiking, mountainbiking, fishing, rafting, canooing, climbing etc.

You can find more info about Äre here: http://www.skistar.com/en/Are/Summer/

I also recommend a visit to Jamtli in Östersund: http://www.jamtli.com/english/

You'll get an idea of what Sweden was like when your ancestor lived here.

Hi Sara!

Hope you made it to Åre and enjoyed your stay. If you not been there yet, I can recommend Åres official website.


If you like more detailed information, just visit the different adventure companies that operate in the village. One good website is www.exploreare.se there you find a lot of information of what to do, prices and so on.

Don´t forget to bring your mosquito repellent :)
