Jämtland, the natural pearl of Sweden

2 minutes to read

Located in the center of Sweden, Jämtland amazes all the nature lovers, hikers and fishermen out there.

There are many options for how to get there; from Stockholm ( and other parts of Sweden) you can find buses and trains that go directly to Östersund capital. However, if you are short on time, you better check a flight that brings you directly to the Östersund /Are Airport.

Summer paradise

Planning your summer vacation in Jämtland is not that easy, since you have so many attractions, activities, events, and hiking paths to choose from. Jämtland travels you back to the stone age; experience the lives of the mountain farmers, farm reindeers with the Sami people, and of course learn about the military history at the museum of Jamtli, in Östersund . Have a gastronomic voyage to the lavish buffet of cheese in one of the area's biggest cheese factories, the Skärvångens Bymejeri AB . Upon your visit you will realise that after all, it's not only Switzerland that produces great cheese.

Fishing

Jämtland is the perfect spot for the ones who love fishing. Specifically, late summer is the ideal time for a unique "twilight fishing" experience. Brown trouts appear into the increasing darkness when the hatching of the dragonflies is at its most intense. Large whitefish are happy to take a dry-fly or spinner, while pikes love to thrive during heat waves. In autumn whitefish, perches and pikes are still biting. Take your equipment and enjoy some good quality fishing while there.

Hiking

If you love hiking, you are once again in the right place. Jämtland offers unique hiking trails in almost every small village. However, on this page I will introduce you to the most special one, the famous triangle route. The famous Jämtland triangle is one of the most well-known hiking trails of Sweden. It’s relatively easy to hike; with unique alpine flora lines along the trails and streams gurgles, you will enjoy every kilometre of this exciting trail. Trust me, this is what your "hiking heart " ever desired.

Food

Jämtland has an amazing tradition and a large production of locally processed food. This is actually the region within the European Union with the largest number of organic producers!! The quality of the locally produced food products is very high; not only because of the manufacturing processes that have evolved over time, but also because of the richness in herbs, the generally favorable environmental conditions, the clean water and of course, the committed and skilled producers. All the different restaurants benefit from the great products making their daily dishes extra tasty.

When you arrive in Sweden consider spending some days at the beautiful Jämtland! I am sure you won't regret it!
