An climate-friendly journey

Going by train is the most environmentally friendly way to travel. Our trains run on renewable electricity, mainly from hydropower. Our connecting buses run on fossil-free fuel (RME or HVO). Snälltåget has modern locomotives that are energy-efficient and also regenerate energy when braking. When more people travel together in the same train, the climate impact is reduced.

In our restaurant, we serve food on porcelain and drinks in glasses to reduce single-use materials.
