Östersund, on the shores of Storsjön lake, is Jämtland’s only city – although it feels more like a large town. In summer it’s a paradise for lovers of the outdoors thanks to fishing on the lake and cycling on the Island of Frösön. Winter brings skiing, ice skating and the chance to see the northern lights, with the highest chance of spotting the aurora from September to March. There’s never a bad time to discover why Östersund has been designated a UNESCO creative city of gastronomy at the many cosy restaurants or take in the views from the nearby Åreskutan mountains.
