The closeness between the city and the mountains is just one of the ingredients that make the city Östersund so unique – and a fantastic destination. Since 2010 Östersund has been a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy, which is no wonder considering all the gastronomic highlights based on regional food culture. Östersund is a popular travel destination for active nature and outdoor enthusiasts and offers endless opportunities to explore the landscape: hiking, canoeing, running, biking or skiing.
Östersund is not far away from the bustling city Trondheim in Norway, making it really easy to get the best of two worlds in one trip. Fly into Östersund Åre Airport and continue by rented car to Trondheim, or travel to Trondheim Vaernes Airport and further by train or rented car to Östersund for a week of adventure.
