Good to know:

Eurail in Sweden is really comfortable in principle. The main routes connect the big cities Stockholm, Malmö and Göteborg. There are many private operators besides State Railway SJ and most of them do accept Eurail. However, you have to be careful as for instance on the line from Göteborg to Stockholm Eurail is only valid in SJ trains but not on board of MTR Express and Bla Taget.

From Stockholm several lines run to the north of the country, the most famous is Inlandsbana, running more than 1000km from Mora via Östersund to Gällivare. Also the Iron Ore line from Lulea via Gällivare to Narvik in Norway is amongst the most known and beautiful lines in Europe. Other international lines run from Stockholm and Göteborg to Oslo, from Östersund to Trondheim as well as from Malmö to Copenhagen. You can't reach Finland by train, however the bus connection from Lulea via Tornio/Haparanda to Kemi is included in Eurail.

Timetables are available in our schedule planner or the Eurail app which include all trains and timings. You can also use the national schedule planner.

The most important ferry connections run from Stockholm to Turku, Helsinki, Tallinn, Saint Petersburg and Riga, from Karlskrona to Gdynia, from Göteborg to Fredrikshavn, Helsingborg to Helsingor and from Malmö to Travemünde.
