We never tried it as parenthood can make you exhausted after a days sightseeing and in a heatwave but this place looked nice and is generally mentioned as a good place to go in town when you want to meet people, drink and sometimes listen to a live band. They call it "Aussie pub" and that has always been popular with the Swedes so no wonder they seem to have created something popular. Husband complained that Cook was a Yorkshireman like himself and not Australian :-))) Looks like they have a good selection of draught beer and whiskies.

This place has all those flags your backpack has been waiting for! International, national, sami flags, pins, pirate flags! There is also a selection of Jämtland t-shirts and other souvenirs.
What to buy: A Jämtland flag is appropriate in this self proclaimed republic.

This is supposedly Jämtland's biggest tourist attraction for some bizarre reason. It's perfectly OK but how it can be the biggest here amongst the fells beats me completely. As a zoo, it is average with a small savannah, lions, tigers, monkeys and some others and it also has a free small circus as well as as a childrens fairground run by a crew of more or less enthusiastic Poles. If your children wants happiness and you want to study Swedish and Norwegian families in action, try it. Personally, I would go somewhere else but my daughter of course loved the place which is why we went in the first place. Sweden has better zoos than this...
Unique Suggestions: Let your child go on all the rides she wants - especially the bouncy castle for some real entertainment for you :-))). DO see the tiny, tiny monkeys in the tropicarium. Talk to the arctic wolf who is very playful.
Fun Alternatives: Get up Frösö Viewing tower and admire the views across to Norway on a clear day. If you have small children, take them to one of the two good swimming pools in town or play crazy golf in the park by the lake.

Favorite thing: At only SEK 120 they are great value for money. We got free entrance to Jamtli (normally SEK 90) and had then already soon paid for our card. Then there was free parking and 2 days free local transport, half price on the boat trip, free entrance to the Frösö tower (SEK 10) and to Sommarhagen and much more that we DIDN'T do.
