I would like to take a train trip that goes the length of Sweden - I'd like to see the north and also through the forests driving down/over to Gothenburg - could also include Stockholm.  This idea is unformed at the moment, but I don't relish driving alone. Or maybe take a series of trains?   Anyone interested in planning this with me for year 2020?   Has anyone done something like this and want to share your experience?  

Train trip in Sweden.  Looking for interested women to join. 

I want to explore some of Sweden's countryside and small towns. 

I'm thinking June of 2020, because it seems like July gets lots of rain.  

 Inlandsbana  train from Kristinehamn to Gallivare. 


Also would add at least a day or two in Stockholm, where I've been before, and a couple days in Gothenberg, but would concentrate on the countryside. The train has a "hop-on, hop-off" capability.  Would like to have some short hikes, and some paddling included. 

Also cross-posting this on Thelma & Louise website and FB and Over 60 Travel Buddy FB page.  

There are tours available with the train, but I think I would like to do this on our own, the tours add quite a bit to the price.  A two week hop-on, hop-off ticket is about $ 211 U.S. less a senior discount.
