Seasons & clothing

Spring – Summer

In Spring we still ski and the weather is warmer but on a windy day the wind chill can still make it colder. It can also be warm so bring layers that you can peel off when the sun comes out. For Summer, bring swim wear, wind jacket and a warmer hoodie and jumper. Pants for trekking and extra socks. Long sleeved shirts are great to protect against any bugs or mosquitos. For all seasons, bring a small day back-pack. Also think of a camera bag.

For equipment such as skis, climbing gear and skates, there are several good rental places in Åre Village and our guides will sort all this out for you.

Should you wish to purchase clothes there are several great shops in Åre Village and also in Östersund that sell everything you might need. There is also a new company in Åre from where you can rent clothes.
