In Östersund, you will enjoy life all year around. The city is "just enough" with a very own charming atmosphere and many things unique. The crisp air, the bright, long summer nights and the white winters with lots of snow make it really easy to like not only the city of Östersund, but also its surroundings. Östersund is located in the centre of the county of Jämtland, the self-proclaimed republic. Here you will find pleasant shopping, several small cafés, exciting cultural life and also a wide range of outdoor activities.
