For those of you who want to take the train to Kiruna, there are several possibilities. If you travel from Stockholm, you can choose to sleep a part of the trip on board Vy’s night train. The night train operates between Stockholm and Narvik and has two departures daily. If you want to travel during the day, it is possible to travel with Norrtåg, which has several departures from Sundsvall in the south to Kiruna in the north.
On the night train, sustainability and the experience are in focus. Vy’s train takes you between Stockholm and Narvik with the least possible environmental impact. You get on, go to bed and sleep and wake up in another city. Enjoy locally produced options in the restaurant and sleep comfortably in the compartment. For those of you who want to experience the beautiful views, or alternatively spend a few hours in front of the computer, a sleeping area can be combined with a seat for the best comfort.
Discounted prices are offered to you who travel with children or if you yourself are a youth/student.
