North to South

Inlandsbanan takes you on an adventure where you get to discover Swedens' Inland from Gällivare and Laponia in the north to Mora and Dalecarlia in the south.


Experience the Swedish Inland in a way you never have before - from north to south. Inlandsbanan takes you to a unique cultural environment with stops at our golden spots along the way. During the journey you will stay in Gällivare, Jokkmokk, Vilhelmina and Östersund, before finally arriving in Mora in the county of Dalecarlia the last day of your trip. 
The train runs through landscapes with abundant wildlife, where Sweden's four big predators live: bear, wolf, lynx and wolverine. If you are lucky you may get a glimpse of them. There is also plenty of reindeer, elk and beautiful birds along the way. During the trip, we will make a stop at the Arctic Circle.

Qualified train guides

Our committed train guides will be on hand on your Inlandsbanan journey. They will help you find your way around, take your food and coffee orders and deal with any practical requests as far as possible. The train guides are knowledgeable and can tell you about places, sights and the scenery along the railway. (They do not accompany you to your accommodation or on excursions, but they are always there for you on board the train).

How to get to Gällivare

It is easy and convenient to travel to Gällivare. We would be happy to assist you in booking a train in connection with your journey. Gällivare train station is located right next to the hotel included in your trip. We recommend taking the night train so you arrive in the morning and get a full day in Gällivare to explore before your southbound journey begins the day after. If you prefer to book connecting trains on your own, you can do so easily via SJs' website.

Gällivare also has daily flight connections with Stockholm-Arlanda, and the airport is only 10-15 minutes away from central Gällivare.

Continued travels from Mora

You arrive at Mora Station on the last day of your journey around lunchtime. If you wish to stay and explore Mora, we can help you book a hotel night here. There are many ways to continue your journey from Mora using public transportation - by train, bus, and even boat or plane. We would be happy to help you book your connecting trains.
