As the name suggest the railway runs inland far away from the Baltic Sea through sparsely populated areas with large pine forests. On its way the Inland Line crosses many smaller and larger rivers who make their way towards the Baltic Sea. The line is relatively flat and has to negotiate smaller hills only from time to time. It is not unusual to spot reindeer or other wild animals on the journey.
Passenger traffic on the Inland Line nowadays is purely touristic. On the whole line from Mora via Östersund to Gällivare passenger trains run only during a few weeks in summer. It is not possible to travel the whole line within one day, an overnight stop in Östersund is necessary. On the southern part from Mora to Östersund there will be an additional service aimed at the local population that will run throughout the year in 2017.
The touristic trains in summer provide a number of special arrangements for passengers. On every train there is a guide telling stories about the history of the line and the areas it passes through. In many stations the train stops for a longer time, giving travellers time to explore the surroundings. Breakfast and lunch is also provided optionally at longer intermediate stops. At some stations there are also local bands and dancers performing. A popular stop is directly at the Polar Circle.
