The beautiful Winter Park

The winter park is the natural meeting place in Östersund during the winter. Here, families with children, sun worshipers, exercisers and those who just want to enjoy the view of Storsjön and Frösön are mixed.

The winter park opens 3 February 2024 and is a place for relaxation and unwinding. Here you meet for lunch or take a fitness walk across the ice, families go sledding together, grill sausages and socialize, in the middle of the week free people sink into the sun loungers or take a ride on the plowed skating rinks. The winter park offers something for everyone. Every year, a little different news appears, such as a winter gallery or mini-antique shop, and in the evenings, effect lighting lights up on the ice.


The winter Playa

The popular Vinterplayan is located on Lake Storsjön’s ice, next to the shoreline. Every day, lots of deckchairs and blankets are put out for visitors to enjoy free of charge.

In good weather, the playa is full of guests enjoying the views and the sunshine.

Birgers Playground

Birger the little Great lake monster has become a well known mascot in Östersund. In the Winter Park, all children are invited to Birger’s Playland, which consists of a large snow castle shaped like Birger. Here you can also borrow sledges, snow sliders and helmets when the kids want to explore the castle and slide down the slope.


Long-distance skating track

Medvinden is a groomed long-distance skating course that runs for miles over Lake Storsjön’s ice. You can use it in all sorts of ways: skating or cross-country skiing, walking or on a kick sled.
