A winter city in every sense.

Slap bang in the centre of Sweden, Ostersund markets itself as the kind of place you can get up close and personal with winter (in fact, its latter-day motto is Vinterstaden, or ‘Winter City’). However, its winters are comparatively mild, local agriculture thriving and lakeshore views beautiful. In short, a perfectly civilised place to escape to, on and off the piste.
