What travellers are saying
- Having a great walk around Are today looking at all the significant old properties in town and found the old Are church
History says it was built by local farmers in the 12th. century
Built of stone it is set in a lovely open farmland type of environment, being Autumn the colours of the trees are outstanding and up above the mountain covered in snow at the top makes a marvellous photo .
We thought it was locked but then noticed this big old key hanging near the little door with a little sign under it saying open 8am to 8pm. We took the key and let ourselves in, how trustworthy is that, sure says something about this community.
It is a very small inviting place with nice timber features in side, what story’s it could tell.
On the wall inside the church is a 14th.century icon representing Saint Olav the canonised Viking King. Beside it is another lovely spired building which I presume was the bell tower.
Inside there is a book containing old photos and and another for comments and signing from visitors .
We happily added our comments, lovely place to visit and one can understand the love that must have been put into this place when it was built.Written 7 October 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

- Walked there and dared to get close to the icy waterfall. Good experience. The trail was kept even during the winter and Covid 19. Easily reached by carWritten 13 January 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- Very cute wooden church that is used by the school next door for all celebrations. It also has an active community and several music sessions.Written 30 April 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We went to Duved by bus to visit the old church and while there we were told about this glassworks in the railway station building.
Easy to find being the railway station, we went in and met two lovely lady’s, one was definately the glass blower, the furnace was blazing so it was lovely and warm in their.
They had just done some work and things were cooling off .
We had a look around the little shop admiring the work, really like the glass leaves of different colours which I suspect were depicting the four seasons.
We had a good chat about the area and they suggested a couple of good restaurants to eat at.
This area will be so busy in February 2019 with the world ski championships happening here,
I am sure these lady’s will be making some great stuff leading up to then.
So when visiting to see the church pop down the road to the station to the glass works, you may find something unique that you love .Written 9 October 2018This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
- We had heard about this place and were excited to visit. The product is good , we bought som chocolate and hot chocolate at the cafe.
We had expected to see chocolate in the making and more of the factory but it is just a store. A nice store but just a chocolate shop.Written 22 November 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.

- We went to Åre on a company trip and booked five activities with Explore Åre (snowquad night tour, largest waterfall in Sweden, dogsledding, feed the reindeer and icefishing). Our guide Bea was very skilled and friendly and our team had a very good time! We all thought it was very interesting that we also learned about the nature and the wildlife in the area. The coffee and snacks by the campfire were also a very nice addition to the activities! Overall a lovely experience!Written 8 January 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
