Swedish Night Trains network
The SJ Night Train is one of Europe’s most modern trains, with characteristically Scandinavian airy and light cars. Travel to the north of the country to visit Luleå, Kiruna and Narvik, Europe’s last wilderness and after your cosy and comfortable night’s sleep you’ll awaken to unspoiled countryside and expansive landscapes.
All the SJ Night Trains have refreshment facilities offering hearty hot and cold meals, drinks, sweets, snacks and a full breakfast. The excellent food, and wine, is specially selected according to the seasons.
When darkness falls and you can’t enjoy Sweden’s natural beauty anymore find the SJ Night Train on board cinema. It’s a proper auditorium with a large screen and 21 seats, showing two films a night until 11pm. There’s also a fully-licensed bistro in the carriage next door.
