Address: Fröå Gruva, 830 13 Åre

Fröå Mines is an old copper mine, beautifully situated on Åreskutans east side.

The Fröå Mines were in operation between from 1744 to bankruptcy in 1919. In the 90's it was decided to rebuild the mining village and water art was reconstructed. A water wheel with a diameter of 9.5 meters is in the original wheel pit from 1859. The wheel drives a 200 meter long pole, which in turn keeps the two pumps running.

In mid-June to mid-August, the mine is open daily with guided tours and refreshments served in the mountain station.

You can also explore the remains of the ancient channel systems on your own, the front desk provides maps.
