Sweden - Ostersund & Bothnian Coast (Chapter)
This is the Östersund & the Bothnian Coast chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sweden guidebook.
Northern Sweden seems to have it all: endless pristine forests where the odds of encountering elk, reindeer and bear are high and the hiking is splendid. Jagged mountains provide Sweden’s best skiing, and host the best mountain biking in summer, plus every other mountain sport possible.

- meet northern Sweden’s wild beasts at Järvzoo
