The Iron Ore Line

(26 February)

The Iron Ore Line is a 398-kilometre long railway line between Riksgränsen and Boden in Norrbotten County, Sweden. It was opened in 1907. The line contains two branches, from Kiruna to Svappavaara and from Gällivare to Koskullskulle.

It is one of the world’s oldest iron ore railways.

The distance between Torneträsk and Riksgränsen has been selected as Sweden’s most beautiful railway scenery.

We see the train pass by on the tracks in the distance below the hotel. The trains are very long.
