The construction of the Inland Railway commenced in 1907 and runs through the very heart of the Swedish countryside. It is now 100 years old and the 1300km (800 miles) of track runs along side glorious lakes, through dense forest and provides unspoilt views. The line is still of great importance to Sweden's infrastructure, as nature provides a rich supply of raw materials and trains are much more environmentally friendly than road transport.
There are 2 summer Inland Railway tours to choose from. The summer tours run from June to August when Sweden enjoys long summer days and the midnight sun. Discover the Inland railway takes you along the back bone of Sweden from Dalarna in the south to Lapland in the north. The Soul of Lapland has different stops with an emphasis on the sami culture.
During your journey you may be lucky enough to catch sight of shy Swedish wildlife including reindeer, elk and bears. Spontaneous stops may be made to make way for these great creatures so keep your camera close to hand! There will also be the services of a train host, who is constantly on hand to offer advice about local activities and offer more information about the spectacular views.
