Go by train

www.sj.se All the way from Stockholm to Riksgränsen and you can even book a connecting bus to other destinations if needed.
www.norrtag.se The local train between Kiruna and Luleå.
www.inlandsbanan.se A train route available during summer, from Southern Sweden all the way up to Gällivare in Swedish Lapland.

In Swedish Lapland nature is always the focal point. The vast, untamed nature that is. Like the deep forests, the highest peaks and the most furiously flowing rivers. We have it all. And it’s no secret that the train is the nature-friendly way to travel.

You let yourself get engulf with a book. Enjoy relaxing in the dining car, have a chat with your fellow passengers. Watch the passing landscapes alternate.

On a train, you can leave your everyday life behind you, dial down the volume on your inner pulse and prepare for your stay in our arctic living room.

Most popular train route is between Luleå and Kiruna. That way you get to experience the islands of Swedish Lapland, the bustling city life by the coast, and the remote mountain area with Abisko National park and the many ski resorts.

Are you going to the mountains? Usually you can combine your train ticket with a bus ticket to your final destination. Take the train to Murjek, Gällivare, Kiruna or Abisko and take the bus from there. If you’re going to Vindelfjällen, take the train to Umeå.

    The season with the midnight light is around 100 days long. You play golf in the middle of the night, you take a swim when you feel like it and those who have never experienced the midnight light before wonder how they'll ever manage to sleep. But then you make your mind up not to worry about sleep and decide it's time for further adventures. Even more summer.
