  • Slow Travel

9 days - Take the slow route through Sweden on the inland train.

The Inlandsbanan route travels through inland Sweden the slow way - two carriages, your own guide and with the average speed of 50km/h, it is a wonderfully relaxing way to appreciate northern Sweden. On your journey north you will travel through a dramatic world heritage landscape, while at the same time getting a taste of the Swedish lifestyle and countryside.

Enjoy the midnight sun, be on the look out for elk and reindeer on the tracks and watch the forests unfold. If you are biking enthusiast, it is possible to bring your bike along for the entire journey - you can book your private stand for your bike.
