At the winter sport area of Åre you will not find much snow in summer. Although, when you climb to the top of the mountain, you may still get to your knees in the snow at several places. You can take a cable car to 1274 m, about 800 meters above the start. From here it is about an hour walking to the top at 1420 meter. In summer, the cafetaria here is closed, just as the attendant of the cable car told us.

The view from the top however is magnificent.

Several kilometers from Åre is an big waterfall: Tännforsen. Every second 715.000 liters water fall 39 meters down. An impressive sight. In winter, the waterfall is covered with a curtain of ice.
