3 tips for finding accommodation
Many of us want to experience the World Championships live, but finding a place to stay in Östersund during that period is not the easiest. Knowing where to look and being open for something other than the regular hotels in central Östersund gives you more opportunities though. Or what about a hotel stay in Åre with the opportunity to combine a alpine holiday with world class biathlon? A cosy stay at a bed and breakfast just a few miles from Östersund? Or perhaps a whole house for yourself for a couple of days? We have listed our three best tips on where to start looking in the search for your accommodation!
Do you want to get the most out of your visit and keep a close distance to the arena and the festivities? Perhaps finding something among the private accommodation that’s out for rent is the best solution for you. Through Visit Östersund you can rent apartment, house or a room in a house for yourself and your company. The list with persons who want to put their property out for rent is constantly updated, so in case you don’t find what you’re looking for right now it might turn up next time you take a look. You find a list of private rentals here.
Look outside the city center and all of a sudden there’s plenty of more opportunities. Bring the kids and stay at playful hotel in Åre, experience the life on a farm only 10 km outside of Östersund or rent a cottage at one of the camping grounds in the area. Besides the playful Holiday Club, with adventure pool and sauna world, the alpine village of Åre have many more accommodation alternatives. Only one hour away and with good commutes to Östersund. On their sites both SkiStar and VisitÅre list different accommodation possibilities in Åre. If you rather bring your own home and look for a place to park your mobile home, Visit Östersund have a list of winter camping grounds here. They also have a great list of alternative accommodation outside of Östersund, which you’ll find here.
