With our night trains, we take you from the south of Sweden to a winter holiday in the cross-country skiing paradise of Bruksvallarna. The train takes you to Röjans station on the Inlandsbanan, and from there, a connecting bus stops in Bruksvallarna at Stigmyhrs Livs.
Departures and stations 2023/2024
For the 2023/24 season, we travel to Funäsfjällen on Wednesdays and Saturdays from December 20th to April 7th. The train times are adjusted for travel with check-in days for accommodations on Thursdays and Sundays. Click here to see the train timetable.
The train departs from Malmö in the evening, and you arrive at Röjans station on the Inlandsbanan the next morning. From Röjan, a transfer bus goes to Bruksvallarna. Pre-order a breakfast bag on the train so you're ready to hit the ski slopes directly upon arrival. The return journey leaves in the afternoon on Thursdays and Sundays, and you're back in Stockholm late at night and in Malmö the next morning.
The transfer from Röjan to Bruksvallarna goes to and from Stigmyhrs Livs, right in the heart of the village, within walking distance of most places. The bus also stops at Funäsdalen's bus station and Ramundberget fjällgården.
How do I travel with the night train to Bruksvallarna?
Boarding the night train is the start of your adventure. You can choose between different comfort levels, but if you travel together, you will have the best experience if you book a Private Compartment. During the evening you can socialise, play games or visit our restaurant Krogen ("The Pub").
You travel in a private compartment for you or your company of up to six people. When you board, the compartment is in seat mode and when it is time for bed, you turn the seats into berths. In night mode, there are three berths on each side of the compartment and you can reach the upper berths with a ladder. Pillows, pillowcases, sheets, blankets and duvets for making the bed, are included in the price.
Private compartment is available for night time travellers. If you travel to Uppsala or Stockholm on the return journey, you have a reserved seat in a compartment with other passengers.
There are two toilets at the end of each coach, no matter the comfort level.
There is Wi-Fi in all coaches except for our restaurant. Keep in mind that it is much slower than an at home network. Make sure you download any movies you want to watch, before boarding the train.
Det finns Wi-Fi i alla vagnar utom vår restaurangvagn. Tänk på att det är mycket långsammare än ett hemnätverk. Ladda ner filmer du vill titta på innan du stiger ombord.
All our coaches have power outlets. They are placed on the wall, but there is not enough outlets for each passenger. The effect of the electrical outlet is limited which means that they are made for charging for example your phone or computer. Some coaches only have USB outlets.
Can I bring a pet?
It is not possible to bring pets on the train to Vemdalen.
Is there a restaurant on board?
Enjoying something tasty in our dining car is an essential part of the mountain holiday. Visiting our restaurant on rails, "Krogen", is popular, so we offer table reservations.
Should I pre-book breakfast?
Start your day with a breakfast bag in the compartment.
The breakfast bag includes a double cheese roll, fruit, juice, and a hot drink (coffee, hot chocolate, or tea).
The breakfast costs 89 SEK.
What about luggage and skiing equipment?
You can bring one carry-on measuring 55x45x25 cm.
If you book a Private Compartment, you can bring more baggage. If you have empty seats in the compartment, you can use one of the beds for baggage storage. Remember, space in the compartment is limited—pack in several smaller, adaptable bags such as totes and backpacks rather than one large and heavy suitcase. Read more in our terms and conditions, points 4 and 5.
Can I cancel or rebook my journey?
Snälltåget tickets purchased on Snälltåget.se are changeable. For an additional fee, the ticket can also be refundable.
