The Wilderness Train Autumn

A unique full board train journey from Stockholm through the Northern and Arctic region of Sweden

The Wilderness Train this autumn will take you along the complete Inlandsbanan. Start from Kristinehamn in the south up to Gällivare in the north - and this it not all! On this trip you will get to visit 3 world heritages - Fågelsjö Gammelgård Bortom Åa, Stora Sjöfallet in the heart of Swedish Lapland and Gammelstads kyrkstad near Luleå. Or maybe you would rather visit Bodens' Fortress Rödbergsfortet when you are in the area? On this journey you will pass another 4 world heritages along the way. 

You travel in first-class carriages from the 40s, 50s, 60s with locomotives from different time periods. One of the highlights is traveling with the steam locomotive, a travel that takes you back in time. The carriages themselves are high-end experiences as you travel comfortably in armchairs. Another highlight of this trip are our outstanding tour guides. The food on board is cooked on the train and served by our Headwaiter Mårten and his committed team. You will also dine local food in selected restaurants along the journey.

We hope to see you on board - you do not want to miss this trip!




During this trip you travel in the railway museum's first-class carriages from the 40s, 50s and 60s. Here are some things that are good to keep in mind before you book this trip:
There are steep steps to get on board the train. While on the train you are seated in low armchairs, the toilet is small and there are long walking distances on board the train. 
It is important that you are able to get on and off the train on your own, as well as walking between the carriages on board without help. Transfer to the hotels are included.
