One great way to explore the Arctic area is by train, specifically the Arctic Circle Train. Known as one of the greatest train journeys in the world, the Arctic Circle train carries travellers along stunning fjords, near frozen glaciers, under icy waterfalls and whisks you past fairytale towns. It offers stunning scenery of Lapland and lets you see many of the rural parts of Scandinavia that are not accessible by cars. The Arctic Circle Train is also a great way to get from one Arctic town to another and you might even have the chance to spot the Aurora Borealis from your train window.
The Arctic Circle train is part of SJ’s network of train routes in Scandinavia and allows you to travel between Narvik and Luleå in a comfortable and environmentally friendly way. In Narvik and Luleå, the train connects with the Arctic Route bus to Rovaniemi (Luleå) and Tromsø (Narvik).
Daily departures/arrivals at Narvik, Riksgränsen, Björkliden, Abisko, Kiruna, Gällivarre, Boden and Luleå.
