Where I stayed
We found this cool little youth hostel and immediately blew our budget on nice comfy beds, rather than mosquitos and tents!
Spent our days wondering around the small town, hiking up the mountain, and biking to old Copper Mines...
For those who don't know Åre is Swedens largest ski resort. It was the host to the 2007 Alpine Ski Championships and it looks like an awesome ski resort. Although trying to build itself as a summer destination resort as well as winter, most of the shops / restaurants / (all of the) bars were closed...
All in all it was a great detour, people were friendly and we even managed to find some snow (they only closed about 4 weeks ago!)
Now its back home to Kilafors and get ready for Switzerland... thats if my bloody visa arrives in the next 72 hours!
