Popular short hikes include the 30-minute, 800m scramble to the top of Mt Åreskutan from the Kabinbana viewing platform and the two-hour (4km) hike down to the village from the same spot. The tourist office stocks booklets and maps detailing multiple hikes in the area.

The area west of Åre is popular among fell walkers, and there’s a network of STF wilderness huts and lodges here for enthusiasts, especially around Sylarna, one of Sweden’s finest mountains for trekking and climbing.
