Swedish Family Ski Adventure

Looking for something a little bit different from your next family ski trip? Then we can highly recommend Åre in the middle of Sweden close to the Norwegian border and just 220 miles south of the Arctic Circle for a Swedish family ski. Being this close to the Arctic Circle in a pristine and unadulterated environment will you all feel like intrepid polar explorers.

With Åre’s laid back approach to a ski holiday this adventure would suit a family looking to stay clear of the bustle you find many more popular resorts. With plenty of non skiing activities, such as dog sledding, ice fishing, snow mobile tours, ice driving and snowkiting!

There are slopes to suit all ages, and generations, and a great range of unusual cuisine this really is a memorable winter family adventure.
