Programme

Day 1 - Arrival in Östersund

You make your own travel arrangements to Östersund, where your package tour begins with an overnight stay. If you need help with connecting trains, please let us know when making your reservation. Östersund is beautifully located by lake Storsjön, where you might catch a glimpse of the famous lake monster.

Day 2 - Östersund

Look forward to a whole day of new experiences in Östersund. If you want to find out about Sami culture at this stage of the journey, pay a visit to the museum Jamtli and perhaps the handicraft shop Gaupa. In the afternoon you will meet the city’s own cicerone, who will take you on a food walk in the restaurant quarters and tell you about Swedish feast- and pub life. You will enjoy five courses on five different restaurants, including cheese- and chocolate tasting.

Day 3 - Östersund - Båtsuoj - Arjeplog

When you are back on the train, the journey continues north past Ströms Vattudal. Look out over the extensive forests and lakes teeming with fish. Inlandsbanan now enters Sweden’s largest province, Lapland. In Slagnäs the journey continues by coach to the Båtsuoj Sami Centre, where you can ­experience authentic Sami life with all your senses. Enjoy a Sami meal served in a traditional Sami hut whilst listening to a storyteller. From Båtsuoj you will go by bus to Arjeplog, where the Sami heritage is well reflected. Arjeplog is one of the smallest communities in Sweden regarding number of inhabitants.

Day 4 - Arjeplog - Jokkmokk

The day begins with a short walk by foot around the centre of Arjeplog, and you will be told the story of Arjeplog today among some historical glimpses. After that you will visit the Silvermuseum, where the Sami silver is glimmering in the Silver hall’s blue vault and where lunch is included. The travel back to Inlandsbanan will go via Galtispuoda mountain where you a day with clear skies see 140 km, 360 degrees. The views are magnificent and camera is highly recommended. Shortly before reaching Jokkmokk you will cross the Arctic Circle – the border of the Land of the Midnight Sun.

DAy 5 - JOKKMOKK - Gällivare

In Jokkmokk you have nearly a full day to visit attractions such as a taste performance. You will experience the guide’s emotional attachment for Lapland listening to stories and songs, looking at pictures and tasting a variety of the local food. After you can visit the  Swedish Mountain and Sami Museum Ájtte (entry included) and Jokkmokk Alpine Garden, where you can study the mountain flora. The journey continues in the evening through the national park area and the World Heritage Site Laponia. 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.

You are welcome to stay on and see more of the area’s rich heritage and beautiful nature. You could visit Europe’s largest copper mine Aitik, for instance, or go for a hike on Dundret mountain. Please visit the tourist office for more tips.
