Train or bus
Sweden has a highly efficient rail and bus network spanning the entire country. Visitors travel smoothly and comfortably across the countryside on some of Europe’s most modern trains. First and second-class cars are available. On longer trips, couchettes and sleeping cars facilities are provided. Long distance trains generally have a buffet car. As an extension to the railway network, buses operate on a frequent basis as a link to smaller cities and villages. These buses can be booked in connection with your railway ticket.

General information, timetables, prices etc is easily available at Resplus http://resplus.se
You can also visit the website of the Swedish railway company SJ http://www.sj.se
We recommend that travellers to Luleå take one of the overnight trains from Stockholm which depart at approx 18:00 (train 94, check latest time table before planning connections) and again at 21:00 (train 92, check latest time table before planning connections). These have sleeping cars available and enable you to arrive fresh in Luleå to begin your holiday at approx 08:00 and 11:30 respectively. They also have the advantage of not requiring you to change to a bus or another train for part of the journey.

The return journeys to Stockholm depart Luleå at approx 16:30 (train 91, check latest time table before booking connections) or approx 20:40 (train 93, check latest time table before booking connections) and arrive back in Stockholm the next morning at approx 06:40 and 12:30 respectively.
Getting around once you are here…..

The hub of the coast and river valleys regions of Swedish Lapland is Luleå. It is the regions major airport with up to 16 daily flights with the majority to and from Stockholm.

Once you land in Luleå we offer guests a meet and greet service at the Luleå airport or train station. From here we take guests on a guided tour into the city and take them into their hotel or other accommodation. This service can be from the airport to accommodation in Luleå or to as far afield as Jokkmokk. More information is available below.

Hire cars are also available from the airport from a range of common suppliers including Avis, Europcar. We can help you book a hire car if you wish.

There is also the train service which runs from Luleå to Boden and then on to Kiruna. This is an excellent service for those wishing to link the coast and river valleys of Swedish Lapland with the mountain regions and perhaps the Ice Hotel.
