DAY 1 - MORA
You make your own travel arrangements to Mora, where your package tour begins with an overnight stay. We can help you arrange connecting journeys by train – just let us know when you make your booking. The Mora area has culture and activities to suit everyone.
DAY 2 - MORA - ÖSTERSUND
Inlandsbanan departures in the afternoon and after a nice breakfast at the hotel you have time to visit Zorngården or Zornmuseet where entrance is included. After that you climb aboard the train for the first stage of your journey on Inlandsbanan. The train will slow down as we pass the waterfalls Storstupet and Helvetesfallet, which were used for timber floating, to allow you to admire nature’s own drama. This stage ends in Östersund, perhaps with an evening walk along the shore of Lake Storsjön.
DAY 3 - ÖSTERSUND - ARVIDSJAUR
From Östersund the journey continues north. You can catch a quick glimpse of Ångermanland before we enter Sweden’s largest province – Lapland. Here you are surrounded by vast areas of forests, mountains, bogs and rushing water. This is also reindeer country so don’t be surprised if you see reindeer, moose and bears along the track. The train pulls in at Arvidsjaur in the afternoon, which allows you time to visit the Sami village Lappstaden.
DAY 4 - ARVIDSJAUR - GÄLLIVARE
The morning is free for you to spend as you wish. In the afternoon you will be crossing the Arctic Circle and travelling through part of the national park area and World Heritage Site Laponia, which has mountains, lakes, delta landscapes, ancient forests and glaciers. You are looking at a landscape imbued with Sami heritage, inhabited since the Ice Age and home to a rich variety of flora and fauna, including several endangered species. After arrival in Gällivare, a guided tour is included.
DAY 5 - GÄLLIVARE - NARVIK - HARSTAD
The journey now continues by train past the ore fields of Kiruna, the northernmost city in Sweden, and on towards Abisko national park with the Kebnekaise mountain as backdrop. You will soon be crossing the border with Norway before arriving in the coastal town of Narvik after a beautiful scenic journey. From Narvik the journey continues by coach to the harbour town of Harstad, the entry point to beautiful Lofoten.
DAY 6 - HURTIGRUTEN
In the morning we board Hurtigruten. The service has been in operation along the Norwegian coast for 100 years, linking the north of the country with the south. Hurtigruten enters Trollfjorden to turn around, which gives you the opportunity to marvel at the spectacular scenery. In the evening the vessel docks at Svolvær, the regional centre of Lofoten. Take the opportunity to go on shore and explore on your own.
DAY 7 - HURTIGRUTEN
Today you will cruise along the Helgeland coastline with more than 1,000 islands and numerous fishing hamlets. In the morning you will cross the Arctic Circle on the way south and also see the “Seven Sisters” – seven beautiful mountain tops that are 1,000 metres tall.
DAY 8 - TRONDHEIM - ÖSTERSUND
When you wake up you will be in Trondheim, where you can visit the beautiful Nidaros cathedral and the fishing harbour Ravnkloa with its local delicacies. The train leaves in the afternoon and reaches Östersund in the evening.
DAY 9 - ÖSTERSUND - MORA
After breakfast at the hotel, Inlandsbanan will take you back to Mora. Your Inlandsbanan Card will still be valid for a few days, and there will still be lots to see and do on and around Inlandsbanan.
