EVERYTHING'S BETTER BY TRAIN:

Tales of the Midnight Sun - on the night train from Kiruna to Stockholm : Travel writer Rossella Tatti on multicultural meetings on board the Arctic Polar Circle train to Swedish Lapland. (Rossella Tatti, 14 June 2017, The Local)

A trip to Swedish Lapland will not only bring you memories of endless days and midnight sun, but also an insight into the richness one can find when travelling - I suggest alone - on a night train passing through the Swedish forests.

Travelling by train more than 20 hours to reach the city of Kiruna located in Swedish Lapland, 67°51'20N, and then go back to the south of Sweden, is an experience which I would advise everyone to do. The view from the train is simple and random, yet it will not have you bored for the entire journey, as eventually you will meet people with sleeping issues just as you, other solo travellers, or people just commuting between cities. If not, the landscape will leave you speechless and you may like to start a competition with yourself on how many reindeers or moose you spot while the train eats kilometres in the Lapland jungle.
