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.

But the results of more and more research in recent years have shown just how beneficial spending time in the great outdoors is for human health and wellbeing. Science confirms a piece of time-honoured folk wisdom. It’s time for a walk in the woods.

  • Architectural dreams

    There is this one hotel room that looks like a bird's nest, and another resembles a UFO. Then there is the hotel where a ruin from an old train workshop runs straight through the kitchen, and the wine cellar is an old grease pit. There is also the hotel in the middle of town that cleans the air to the same extent an entire forest would. We travel between excellent accommodation options in Swedish Lapland.
