We recommend you consider the various public transportation offers especially the train as your preferred means to travel to Åre for the Championships. If you have to drive, please try to share the ride with fellow ski fans.
To reach Åre by car, the best way is to take the European Highway 14 (E14) which connects Åre to Östersund. E14 begins in Trondheim and ends in Sundsvall. It connects with E4 and E45.
The shortest way to drive from Stockholm to Åre is E4 via Bollnäs (Roads 84 and 296), to E45 followed by E14. The fastest way to drive from Stockholm is to take E4 via Sundsvall where it connects with E14.
The European Highway 45 traverses entire Europe from Gela in Sicily to Karesuando in Northern Sweden. It connects Östersund to Mora and then to E14 in Östersund or alternatively via Svenstavik via Road 321 which connects with E14. The E45 has plenty of heavy transportation traffic which means that while it is the most beautiful option in terms of landscape, expect delays due to traffic.
Please note that there will be very limited parking available in and around Åre during the Championships. Most accommodation does not include parking.
