Åre [map], one of Sweden’s most popular ski resorts, is wonderful in summertime as well. Beautiful nature, plenty of things to do. Hiking, rafting, downhill biking, canoeing, horseback riding, paragliding, to name a few. There are also many restaurants and bars in Åre, but nightlife is more vibrant in the wintertime.

Went out for dinner with my friends to B.A.R. (Blasieholmens Akvarium o Restaurang) [map]. The concept is to pick out what kind of fish or shellfish you want from an ice display or aquarium, and then you add side orders from the menu. It’s possible to order meat as well, but the reason to go there is the fish. If you haven’t done it before, try a sea-urchin, if you dare…

Snow-rain and zero degrees

No fancy weather. Decided working from home was better than office today :-)

Passed Dorotea on our way to Östersund, and found a beautiful beach with a view over the mountains in the horizon.
