The Northern Lights Train

Chase the Aurora Borealis while travelling on Norway’s northernmost railway on board the Northern Lights Train.

The Northern Lights Train will take you far up in the mountains, away from the bright city lights where you have a great chance of catching the Green Lady dancing in the sky.

The guides will welcome you on board the Arctic Train and we will start our journey along the Ofoten line. During the trip we will share stories while enjoying a comfortable train ride and passing beautiful fjords and landscapes.

First stop on this journey is Bjørnfjell, which is the border station to Sweden. After a short stay at Bjørnfjell, we travel to Katterat station. Here we will continue our chase 374 metres above sea level while we explore the area and listen to Northern Lights stories.

At Katterat station, we will make a campfire and serve pastries while enjoying some warm beverages and looking at a once in a lifetime view.
