Railway Services in Europe


Eurail.com is the official online sales channel for Eurail Passes, however by shopping around you may find a better deal for your trip or tour at one of the many rail travel websites now operating. Many of these companies operate across the whole world specialising in certain countries so be sure to check out a few and be sure you get what you pay for. Cheapest is not always best and it is always best to go with local knowledge from a company who really knows where you want to go and what you want to see. Talk to someone "on the spot" whenever you can.



Sweden's highly-efficient rail network spans the entire country with modern trains visiting landscapes of magnificent fjords, dense forests, cascading waterfalls, dramatic cliffs and grassy green mountain slopes. Destinations such as Lake Storsjön and Gällivare are beautiful in both summer and winter. Enjoy the ride in comfortable, hospitable and relaxing surroundings.
