S/S Thomee Ostersund Reviews
Jul 20, 2007
Sweden's oldest steamer still in regular traffic. Take a tour on lake Storsjön on S/S Thomée and see the beauty of the area from the lake. Thomée is in service every day in the hig season (except Mondays). Short sightseeing tours, tours with live music and stopovers at some of the islands of lake Storsjön.
Maybe you can even see the great lake monster.
The story of Storsjöodjuret (the Great Lake Monster) is at least 400 years old. It reigns in lake Storsjön, Swedens fifth largest lake, in the county Jämtland which is right in the middle of Sweden
Lake Storsjön was created some 9000 years ago in the end of the ice age. We don´t know exactly what the bottomstructure of the lake looks like, but what we do know is that the soil and rock forms a good environment for a large fishproduction in the lake.
The lake is also quite resistent to pollutions. This gives the perfect conditions for a possible monster…
Today there are some 200 documented witnessreports from 500 people who have seen Storsjöodjuret. Many more have spoken of encounters. There are probably a large number who still don´t dare to speak of what they have seen in the dark waters of lake Storsjön.
There is one thing that all witnesses are stressing: - It is an empowering experience to meet with the monster, an experience which is hard to forget. Can all these witnesses be wrong?
