Mountainbike & Cross Country
Cycling cross-country in Åre is more of an experience and an adventure than just a training round. You may need to wade over a mountain stream and carry the bike over logs and rocks. If you choose to cycle MTB downhill, there are nice slopes to tackle as a challenge.
Fishing in the mountains is an experience a little out of the ordinary. In the clear waters, with the right fishing gear and the right bait, you will get a lot of fish. In the mountain lakes there is plenty of trout and char, pike, grayling, perch, whitefish and some lake are also hiding in the deep waters of Årefjällen.
Try running in the mountain world. Fly over roots, rocks and gravel. Feel how your legs sometimes fly forward and sometimes become stiff and heavy on uphill slopes. Maybe you can get into real flow, and lose time and space where you run forward. Åre has plenty of good jogging trails and not everyone is hilly. You can choose a slow jogging trip or run an intense workout, everything depending on your day form and what you feel for today.
