From all of us to all of you
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
IMPORTANT COVID - 19 INFORMATION
Due to the ongoing world wide Covid-19 pandemic with strict restrictions on what to do, travel restrictions and closed borders we have decided to postpone the start of The Arctic Route until 1 February 2021 at the earliest. We are sorry for this, but this is for the safety of our passengers and staff. The only route that will operate “as normal” is the train between Luleå – Kiruna and Narvik. For more information about this route visit vy.se.
We are monitoring the situation closely and no later than 15 January, we will make a decision based on what we will do after 1 February 2021.
If the situation regarding the pandemic should change for the better during rest of December / early January and we can spot a light in the end of the tunnel in relation to vaccination, we will consider an earlier opening of some of the routes.
The whole AR team want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
The Arctic Route is a safe, reliable, comfortable and environmentally friendly way of travelling to new adventures and creating unforgettable memories of this stunningly beautiful landscape.
Our travel routes make it easier for you to visit the various destinations in the Arctic, either one way or for a return round trip. Book one of our routes and sit back, relax and enjoy the magical landscape that will pass you by, on your way to your next adventure. Along the routes, activity and accommodation providers offer a wide range of experiences such as dog sledding, snowmobile safaris, traditional food and drink, wildlife safaris, Sami culture and experiences, skiing and snowshoeing, aurora safaris, spectacular accommodation and much more.
These new travel routes to Finland and Sweden make it now possible for you to experience the magic of Arctic Finnish and Swedish Lapland and the rugged Arctic coast of northern Norway all on the same bus trip.
The Arctic Route will operate daily services from December 1st until the end of March every year, between Tromsø and Narvik, Lyngen, Rovaniemi, Luleå and Kiruna. Our aim is to make this a year round service in the future.
