Åre Bergbana


This lovely old mountain railway was completed in 1910 along with the first ski lifts in Åre. These days, the funicular is run by SkiStar during winter and Hotel Fjällgården keeps it operating in the evenings and at other times to get guests to the hotel. The trip takes seven minutes and is included for hotel guests.
