Inlandsbanan takes you to some of the most interesting places in the varied landscape of inland Sweden.
The journey begins in Kristinehamn and takes you all the way up to the magnificent Lapland wilderness with its salmon rivers and mountain tops covered in snow nearly the whole year round. On the way you will admire the Zorn paintings in Dalarna and visit the heritage museum Jamtli History Land next to Lake Storsjön. The way north is lined with interesting places and on arrival in Gällivare you mustn’t miss the view from Dundret Mountain, a real highlight.
(Price is for adult sharing a double room, starting in Mora.)
Day 1 - Arrival in Kristinehamn
You make your own travel arrangements to Kristinehamn, where your package tour begins with an overnight stay (If you would like to start in Mora, please read from day 2). Once you are in Kristinehamn there are several sights and excursions that are definitely not to be missed. Perhaps a trip around the beautiful archipelago on the replica 17th century sailing ship Bojorten or shopping in the town’s delightful boutiques.
Day 2 - Kristinehamn - Mora alt. Arrival in Mora
After breakfast at your hotel you begin your journey north by train to new adventures. The first stage takes you through the historical landscape of Bergslagen marked by the mining industry that flourished in the 18th century. The rolling forests are dotted with small lakes, reinforcing the magical quality of Värmland. The end destination of this day is Mora in Dalarna, by the shore of Lake Siljan. If you have chosen to start your package in Mora, you will start today with an overnight stay.
Day 3 - Mora - Östersund
Because of its delightful location on the shore of Lake Siljan and its rich cultural heritage there is much to see and do in Mora. We suggest you make time for a visit to Zorngården (entry included) or the Vasa Race museum or a walk along beautiful Siljan. In the afternoon the journey continues by train through the county of Härjedalen. Here you will come real up close with the wilderness when you travel through bear forests. In the evening we arrive at Östersund, the residential city of the county of Jämtland.
Day 4 - Summer city Östersund
Östersund is a true summer city with a great deal to offer. Take a walk to the heritage museum Jamtli History Land and meet up with people and places from days gone by. Entry is included. Or perhaps you want to discover the city on your own? Bikes can be hired from the tourist information office, where you can also pick up a map of cycling routes. Enjoy your bike ride!
Day 5 - Museum of Inlandsbanan and Arvidsjaur
We travel on through the southern parts of Lapland, taking a break at Storuman, where you can visit the station house, a listed building. In Sorsele we visit the Inlandsbanan museum, where we get an insight into how the railway was built more than 100 years ago.
Day 6 - The Arctic circle and Midnight sun
Arvidsjaur offers a wide variety of activities, from fishing to canoeing or a visit to the Sami village Lappstaden. In the afternoon you embark on Inlandsbanan again and just before reaching Jokkmokk, you cross the Arctic Circle, where the train makes a stop. On the way to Gällivare you travel through the Laponia World Heritage Site. In Gällivare a guided tour is included in the evening. Until the 30th of July to the summit of Dundret, where you can enjoy the most astounding views in the light summer night, and after that date at the Laponia entrance and the exhibition about the World Heritage Laponia.
Day 7 - Gällivare
Inlandsbanans most northern destination, Gällivare, also offers a wide variety of sights and activities. From the tourist information office, which lies right next to the railway station, you can get tips and ideas for an exciting day in Gällivare.
Dag 8 - Gällivare - Vilhelmina
After an early breakfast, the journey turns back south towards Östersund. The scenery actually looks different seen in “reverse order”. Just before the train arrives Vilhelmina which is this day’s final destination, we make a dinner stop. Here you can enjoy price awarded fish-and charcuteri dishes, and you have the possibility to buy home some edible souvenirs.
Dag 9 - Culture rich Vilhelmina
In Vilhelmina you will have time to visit both Hembygdsmuseet museum and old church village Kyrkstan before the train departures. You will now leave Swedish Lapland and the journey continues past a landscape of lakes and mountains. In the evening you arrive to the city of Östersund by Lake Storsjön.
Dag 10 - Östersund - Kristinehamn
After breakfast you begin this last leg of the journey south with Inlandsbanan. It takes you back to Mora or Kristinehamn depending on where you started and marks the end of the tour.
