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.
