You can see the mountains from the city of Östersund, the elusive Bydalsfjällen in the Oviken Mountain range. The mountain resort is family friendly with a total of 17 ski lifts and 40 ski runs on the same ski pass. Nordic skiing trails in many directions as well as trails for snowmobiling.
In summer there is a multitude of hiking trails. One of the trails leads up along the Dromskåran, a remnant of the last ice age. Bydalsfjällen is a part of Saepmie. Hovde fäbod is a working summer farm with animals and dairy production. In nearby Dammån there is a unique species of char called Dammåöring. Fish are controlled daily in a Fisktrappa (Stairway for the fish) and naturally this is a popular place for fly fishing. Dammån is also home to a large population of beavers.
At Arvesund there is a museum on the industrialisation of Jämtland called Arvemuseet. This is also the port for the steamer SS Östersund.
