If you are looking for a really great training environment, in winter and in summer, Östersund is the perfect choice. Every skiing national team in the country comes here for cross-country skiing training. Many of the elite skiers have also moved here to be able to develop and increase their performance. At the Winter Olympics and Paralym- pics in Pyeongchang, for example, 10 of 15 Swedish medals were secured by skiers that live and train here.
Challenge yourself and test our 8 km asphalt roller skiing track with World Championship standard. This is the same track that lies underneath the skiing tracks during the World Championship competitions, and is one of Europe’s best and toughest in altitude difference. Here in the stadium area you can also do bike riding and run- ning on illuminated tracks or more demanding trails in the forest, in beautiful areas with a varying nature. There are multiple arenas with sports auditoriums and gyms to choose from. And everything is located close to the city center. Shooting equipment and handcycles are also available for renting.
