Escorted Rail Tours to Östersund

Watch out for Storsjöodjuret, the lake monster!

Situated on the eastern shore of Lake Storsjön - Sweden's fifth largest lake - Östersund is located in roughly the centre of Sweden. As the only town of any size in the vicinity, it is a major cultural and transportation centre. One of the enduring legends about the town is that the lake's rarely-sighted monster has come ashore there.

Storsjöodjuret ('the great lake monster') reportedly emerged from the chilly waters into the town in 1635, and has been spotted infrequently ever since. Generally described as serpentine with multiple humps, the monster has yet to be caught on camera, yet for a time the town had a law ensuring its protection!

“This was an absolutely brilliant tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed, in spite of some early morning starts and late evening finishes! The Tour Manager was just great and a real fund of knowledge at every stage of the tour. She was well informed and was able to keep us very well advised along the way, as well as keeping the whole trip on schedule.
