Days 7-8 of my trip is exploring the last part of Malmbanan (Iron Ore Line) all the way to Norway.
July 2014 was the hottest month on record with average high temperatures of 23,8C. This was during a significant heatwave affecting most of Scandinavia. Unfortunately to me, this was not repeated in July 2015, instead I had to experience some very rainy days on my trip. Here is Abisko turiststation.
Worth to mention is that besides Iron Ore and passenger trains, the Iron Ore Line is also used by the ARE (Arctic Rail Express), a 1950km line between Oslo and Narvik that takes 26,5h. It was started 1993 and it is operated by CargoNet company transporting cargos to the northern part of Norway.
