Getting around with Sweden Transport
Most flight connected with Sweden usually land in Stockholm, although domestic flights also connect to northern Sweden. Most airlines give a generous discount for advance-bookings.
Statens Jarnvager, is the state railway company and offers very reliable services throughout the southern parts of Sweden. Sweden also has high-speed trains called the X2000 and some private trains such as, the Pagatagen in Helsinborg, Lund, Malmo and Ystad, the Malmbanan in Stockholm that runs to Boden, Umea, Kiruna, Narvik and Norway. It is recommended that you make reservations for all trains.
Swebus is the main bus company in the northern part of Sweden. The Swebus Express serves the southern side of Sweden. Tickets can be bought at the bus stops or on board. Note that bicycles are not allowed on the buses and that the express buses offer discounts to children, seniors and students.
Sweden has an abundance of ferry services. From Stockholm, ferries run to the Aland Islands, Gotland, Turku, and Helsinki. Ferries cross from Malmo to Copenhagen and from Ystad to Bornholm and Denmark. Ferries from Gothenburg runs to Frederikshavn, Denmark, Kiel, Germany and Newcastle. The ferry services are very comfortable and reliable.
The Swedish roads are remarkably quiet, and very well maintained. Unleaded petrol is fairly cheap and there are many car hire companies that offer extremely good fares.
By Hike and Bike
Sweden is a very nice place to ride bike in. The paths crisscross over most parts of the country and the drivers are very courteous. Hitchhiking is very uncommon in Sweden and it is not a recommended method of safe traveling.
