since the train basically stops outside of Bodö (Middle of Norway) and if you want to go further north by train I think there is some link through sweden which could take you to Narvik which is still quite far south in Norway (in my opinion atleast)
IF you are going to Northern Norway you must go to Lofoten which is a marvelous area out by the coast. ending up in either Bodö or Narvik means you should easily be able to travel to Lofoten. I haven't been there since 40 years ago i suppose, but I have lots of family there
If you choose to go further north, visit Tromsö which is called "The nordic Paris", full of pubs and a beautiful city.
You could always try to go by the coastal steamer further north, there are lots of beautiful places and nice people along the coast, you could even end up in Kirkenes (but you will pass by Nordkapp on your way there, so a chance to go there would be nice too) and once in Kirkenes it is just a few kilometers to the russian border, cross it and the rest will solve itself. Visit norway Northern Norway
Anything else please feel free to ask
In 1974 as a 17 year old, me & a couple of mates bought Interrail tickets and travelled around western Europe by train for a month.
This year is the 50th anniversary of Interrail & to mark this they had a 50% sale. I've recently retired, & have treated myself to a 2 month ticket that gives me unlimited travel on European trains. I intend to travel either this autumn or next spring.
I'm thinking of heading to northern Norway & Sweden, then Finland, the Baltic states & Eastern Europe.
Does anyone have any advice on northern Scandanavia, places to see, travel (especially trains) etc. Also, same re the Baltic countries?
Thanks a million
