Travel Tips for Östersund

Storsjö Lake Monster

by Sjalen

Storsjön is famous for being Sweden's Loch Ness and some even claim there is a secret passage to the Scottish lake. Whilst I don't doubt for one second that people have seen huge unidentified water creatures here, I think it might be because of the unique geology - some huge fish is known to thrive here for instance. Whatever the real truth, there is a legend about the monster being created by two witches who just stirred their pots with various ingredients. The town now lives on this legend and everywhere you go, you will see souvenir monsters - everything from cuddly toys (like the monster's son Birger!) to tasteful handicraft.

The Middle of Sweden

by Sjalen

Most people see Stockholm as the middle of Sweden but oh no, this is an oblong country and you have to go to the highlands to reach the middle. There is in fact a village between Östersund and the town of Sundsvall which has grabbed the official title and issues certificates to visitors. But Östersund will do me fine as a representative of mid Sweden. It lies on a hillside next to the great Storsjön which is Sweden's fifth largest lake (and its Loch Ness) so there is some scenery here. Opposite the town centre is the large Frösön island with this gorgeous view of the highlands in the distance as this is the gateway to the majestic Jämtland fells. To those of you who think this is too tranquil, I can inform you that there is no need to worry if you come in July during the Storsjöyran festival...! As it is also somewhat of a centre for the midlands, a student town and gateway for people going to Åre, there is a surprisingly exotic nightlife for its size (60 000).
