Though there is regular passenger traffic on the line, it mainly serves as a recreative railway, and most tickets types gives you the option to hop off and on the train as you like. It begins in Kristinehamn on the shores of Väneren, and passes the major inland cities of Mora, Österssund and Vilhelmina on the way.
  • Malmbanan literally means the Ore railway is an important railway running between Luleå on the gulf of Bothnia and Narvik on the Atlantic coast. It's mainly used to transport Iron ore from the huge mines around Gällivare and Kiruna, but fortunantly the spectaluar views along the line can also be seen from serveral passenger trains running between the two cities, and in the summer, a daily overnight train from Göteborg and Stockholm.
