Overview - apartment description - Vargen Apartments description

Families would be hard pressed to find better self-catering accommodation in Åre. The Vargen Apartments are right next to the slopes of Åre Björnen – the best area for beginners and kids - so you've got a great view of the action. It only takes a couple of minutes to walk to the nearest drag lift and the ski school meeting point, depending which building you're staying in.

There are 20 buildings, each with six apartments. The apartments are privately owned so the small details may vary, but they're all spacious and homely, with simple décor and wooden furnishings. They each have a well equipped kitchen, complete with oven, dishwasher and fridge, so cooking is a breeze. Separate bedrooms give everyone a bit of privacy, and the balcony or terrace will help you make the most of those views. But the best bit might just be the private sauna – the perfect place to unwind at the end of the day.

The reception building and ski hire shop are a short downhill walk away, on the other side of the slope. It’s a 7km trip to Åre By, but you can easily take the ski bus there to explore the shops, bars and restaurants, or to stock up at the supermarket in the train station.

Please note:

Linen is provided but beds are not made on arrival. You will need to make up the beds yourself.

The reception building is a short walk from the apartments. After you pick up your keys, you will need to walk 5-10 minutes uphill with your luggage.

There's no rep based in Åre, but support is available 24/7 by phone, email or Twitter.

Excellent snow record Chic village base Big ski area for N. Europe

As one of Scandinavia’s biggest ski areas, this place has incredible offerings for families (and everyone else for that matter), with a trendy and relaxed village to come home to at the end of the day. Reindeer roam the forests and the northern lights sometimes appear at night. We love this part of the world.

People describe Åre (pronounce it ‘Aw-ra’) as a pint sized version of a big city – there are oodles of restaurants, shops and the like surrounding the main square, but you still get that cosy feel that Scandi mountain villages are loved for. Life here’s a lot more laid back than you find in the bigger European resorts – despite being Sweden’s biggest and best place to ski, everything stays wonderfully smart and unhurried. Accommodation is spread across a number of different bases. Åre By (at th...
There are three ski areas, Åre Village, Björnen and Duved. The first two are lift linked, while the third can be reached by ski bus. Åre Village has Northern Europe’s biggest vertical drop, with a fine mix of runs streaming down the Åreskutan mountain into the village centre. The ski school meets in Rödkullen, which is also home to the snow park with its various rail lines and a smaller park for children. Above it, Ullådalen has a gentle green and blue. From the top of the Åreskutan, red runs meet b...
Bygget’s been one of the biggest party spots here for decades, with a stage for live music events, dance floors and SIX bars. The club runs Veranda which is a spot for more traditional après ski, also with live bands and an electric atmosphere. Timmerstugan’s another good ‘un – a handy place to meet up for drinks and snacks by the gondola base station. The Creperie & Logi is one of our favourite post-ski pit stops in these parts, where we could feast on the cheesy galettes and chocolatey crepes all day...
