Welcome to Are Old Church. Here you can light a candle, say a prayer or just enjoy the tranquility.

Are Old Church was built during the second half of the 1100s on the old Pilgrim Road to Nidaros (Trondheim), and has for centuries been a church both for passers to parishioners.

The canonized Norwegian Viking king Olav Haraldsen, St. Olav, is said to have been buried in the church.

Hisa wooden figurine still remains in the church and was probably made around 1300. The crown was replaced with a Carolinians hat in the seventeenth century when Åre was Swedish, then the Carolinian kings opposed the aristocracy lavishly challenging lifestyle and brought themselves deliberately modest in dress and way of life.

Even the two ships candlesticks in the chancel are medieval as well as various grandstands at the sanctuary.
