Östersund

Getting there & around

The airport (19 30 00) is on Frösön, 11km west of the town centre, and the airport bus leaves regularly from the bus terminal (Skr50). SAS flies several times daily to Stockholm.

The train station is a short walk south from the town centre, but the main regional bus station is central on Gustav III Torg; local buses usually run to both. Local buses 1, 3, 4, 5 and 9 go to Frösön (Skr15, or free with the Östersund Card).

Bus 45 runs south to Mora twice a day; in summer the Inlandsbanan train runs once daily, to Gällivare or Mora. Bus 156 runs west to Åre; bus 63 runs twice daily northeast to Umeå.

Direct trains run from Stockholm via Gävle, and some continue to Storlien (from where you can catch trains to Norway). You can also catch a train east to Sundsvall.

For car hire, contact Statoil (12 39 75; Kron- dikesvägen 97). Bikes and inline skates can be hired from Badhusparkens Uthyrningscenter. There are also taxis (51 72 00).
