Highway E14 runs through Åre and takes you via Östersund to your destination. The E14 begins in Trondheim and ends in Sundsvall.
The closest way to get from Stockholm to Åre is via E4, via Bollnäs (route 84 and 296), to E45 and after that E14. The fastest connection from Stockholm is via E4 to Sundsvall and connect from there to E14.
Highway E45 runs all the way from Gela, Sicily, to Karesuando in the north of Sweden. It passes in the inland of Sweden to Östersund via Mora and connects to E14 in Östersund or via Svenstavik to road 321 that later connects to E14. The E45 is used by a lot of heavy traffic and, while it’s a more scenic route than E14, it might not be the fastest option.
Please note that parking space is limited during the event and that parking in the central village will be hard to come by unless parking is included in your accommodation.
