For over 100 years, Åre Bergbana has been bringing tourists up the mountain from Åre town square all the way to Fjällgården (the Fell Farm), and still today the funicular railway remains at the heart of what is now northern Europe’s largest and most advanced alpine resort. Voted Sweden’s best ski resort for the third year in a row at the World Ski Awards last month, Åre is unquestionably phenomenal – yet there is more to life in Åre than skiing.
