Wildlife, culture and eerie arctic beauty come together in this two-week ride from Stockholm through the mysteries of the Arctic Circle and out again to Oslo. Man-made scenery drops away rapidly and the midnight sun uncovers a perfect wilderness of icy lakes, deep forests and dizzyingly high bridges across twisting fjords.

The full tour takes in several of the world’s most northern railways, and can be interspersed with cultural excursions and overnight stays to aid recovery from the sky-high, gravity-defying railway experiences.
