Open guided tours
We offer a number of open tours and guided tours that we run at regular times.
Ski tour (half day)
This is a perfect activity for those who want to try a simpler tour. We start with the lifts in central Åre and then tighten the climbing skins and by our own power get away from the slopes, and up to the back. We finish with a nice ski run back down to the village. Usually we have 2 shorter runs or one little longer.

We leave Åre village early in the morning, we pack our cars with ski and avalanche equipment, and of course gofika and lunch. A thermos with morning coffee sits well during the drive there. After about 1.5 hours, we have come as far as we get for the day by car.
Your guides start by unloading the scooters at the end of the road, we need them to interpret the last 10 km into the mountain world. The terrain feels powerful and depending on the weather we choose between Himmelsraften or Mjölkvattsfjället. Of course, being in an area where only the guide's satellite phone has coverage feels a little extra exciting. Expect about 750-1500 altitude meters per day, this is for those who have tried the top tour for a few years and may even have their own equipment.
We'll be back in the village by afternoon/evening.

We travel early from Åre and after about 1.5h in a car we reach fjällexpressen, our help the last kilometers up to the foot of the mountain.
When the trail skins are on, a full day awaits in skäckerfjällen nature reserve. Here the two guides choose runs and peaks according to the current weather. After the tour we go shuttle back to Kolåsens Fjällhotell where Annika and Micke receive us with a warm hand. Here the food is prepared from scratch using its own local and organic ingredients. They have their own pigs, sheep and chickens and in the mountain garden they have grown everything from root vegetables to their own tomatoes. The feeling of putting ham from the farm pig on the breakfast sandwich is difficult to describe in words. Before dinner there is the possibility of a sauna and we sleep well at the historic hotel which has miles of views of Skäckerfjällen Nature Reserve.

FAQ and more information
What is included on a ski tour in Åre?
Both on the top tour half day and on the top tour (full day) Storulvån includes guide, avalanche equipment and ski equipment from Salomon. Packed lunches for 150 kr are available for purchase.
What kind of clothes do you have?
Clothes after the weather is a classic expression. The basic rule is to think the same as for regular skiing but to keep in mind that you get extra hot when you go upright. Layer-on-layer principle is a great tip where you can vary body heat by taking off or putting on multiple layers. A heat garment for the coffee break is recommended. A buff that protects the face from wind is also good to have.
Where do we gather?
We gather at Åreguiderna Guide Office on the east side of Åre Torg. During the high season weeks 9, 10 and 13, the tour starts half day in Björnen (at the åreguiderna snowmobile base).
Under the current conditions, no transport is included. Storulvån is about 40 minutes by car west of Åre. Getting there requires your own car or taxi.
Is top tour equipment included?
All our top tours include testing Salomon' latest tour equipment.
If you want to borrow equipment, we see that you will come by Årorg the afternoon before and test the size of boots etc. Avalanche equipment (shovel, probe, transiver and backpack) is also included.
