Kiruna, Europe’s last untouched land
Kiruna city guide
From Stockholm take the 6 pm night train to reach Kiruna at 11 am on the next day. Welcome to Europe’s last untouched wilderness! Wake up in Lapland, surrounded by complete stillness, overlooked by snow clad mountains, streaming rivers and crystal clear lakes.
With this unique journey you will experience the magical beauty of the Aurora Borealis and the northern lights as they illuminate the skies with cascades of colours. When it’s time to eat, you’re in for a real experience. The cuisine of the indigenous Sami people is all about nature´s own delicacies such as reindeer, salmon and lingonberry.
Take the Arctic Circle train from Kiruna to Narvik (2h50 trip). During your memorable trip you can stop over at several Nordic havens such as Abisko, Björkliden or Riksgränsen.

- "Paris - Amsterdam - Paris" Erica g. 29/09/2016
The train was quick and on time. Seats aren't as comfortable as I'd hope. Overall good ride.

very good, fast, comfortable. the only critic would be that isa little bit expensive, but much better than the plane
- "Trip from Malaga to Cordoba" Denis s. 29/09/2016
A very easy and comfortable train ride from Malaga Maria Zambrano station. Station was very clean and amenities were great. Train left on time and arrived at destination on time, liked the little touch of handing out FREE earphones so you can watch the tv or listen to music piped through the train had a snooze, very relaxed when got to Cordoba.
- "Europe Rail Pass a must" Sylvia L p. 29/09/2016
We recently visited France and used the rail pass to travel from Paris to Strasbourg, Avignon, Marseilles and back to Paris. We travelled in comfort, and the convenience of the rail pass ensured us stress free and cost effective travel and in addition beautiful views of the French countryside - a must for all visitors wanting to visit multiple destinations in France and Europe.
- "Misleading pricing " Paul b. 29/09/2016
The train was comfortable and on time but feel mislead by Rail Europe as booked and paid for 'First Class' and received Tourist Plus
- "Excellent" . 29/09/2016
thee best train journey we ever had for comfort value and superb service we also traveled from Barcelona to Seville and Madrid back to Barcelona all thee journeys were excellent now we know all the destinations we cant wait to travel from UK via Paris to Spain no more flying we are truly converted
- "Great, but not very frequent" Rodney Paul s. 29/09/2016
Stations, staff, ticketing and the trains themselves are all great. Travelling by train in Spain is a pleasure (which can seldom be said for rail travel in Britain). Prices reasonable, but frequency is not high and this means careful thought before making the journey.
- "Comfortable and efficient" Marian d. 29/09/2016
Very easy booking process. Lots of times to choose from. Very comfortable travel and short travel time between cities.
- "Turin to Milan" Roy h. 29/09/2016
Fantastic service, excellent trip. Slight inconvenience was we would have been nearer our final destination if we had got off at Milan Centrale rather than go on to Rogoredo. Not sure why we ended up with this option. The railways are superb and we'll use them again.
- "Geneva to Nice trip" Neil s. 29/09/2016
First class in every sense of the word. Very comfortable, very interesting, the staff were all very efficient, very pleasant
- "Travel in style" Amitabha s. 29/09/2016
A very comfortable coach with plush interior does not usually come with ordinary class. A very quiet and comfortable ride with clear announcements on display board makes the trip reassuring in a distant land.
- "efficient and convenient" Charles p. 29/09/2016
Having no major airports closeby, we travelled 1st class by DB train. Train was on time, staff very friendly and trip comfotable
- "Comfortable and convenient " Nombulelo m. 29/09/2016
The best way to travel. Train is fast and comfortable. Make sure u not only buy ticket but reserve seat too, most people do, otherwise you will spend journey moving from seat to seat thruout the carriages. And it also guarantees that as a party you will seat together
