If you will be captured, you can be kicked out of the train or you can get fine NOK 900 (about Eur 80). But it is true, that you do not have to pay if you do not live and work in Noway. But there are not so many people in train and conductor can check whole train in one or two stops. Time between stops is usually 10-30 min and 10-50 km (bigger distance in north). If you are kicked out, then many stations can be without waiting room especially in north or in some small stop, many stops are request only ( north from Oslo and Trondheim, around Roros, Tynset). There are 3 trains a day and one night train (with not all stops) between Oslo and Trondheim. But there are more trains with shorter journey and more stops. You can wait 2- 6 hours or whole night for next train and some stations are without waiting room. Winter temperature in this region, it is various. Temperature is usually from +5 to - 15 with west wind and a lot of rain and snow. Bout some stations are further from sea, even in mountains and temperature can drop to -20 or even to -30. It can cause death during exam in case that you fail and waiting room is not in your station ( and waiting rooms can be close during night). Fist type is Orange doors - local dance floor L ( you can find this type of train by letter L in station departures table and if you look to www.idos.cz , this type of dance floor is market like R, and you can see at www. idos.cz all stops during trip) . Local dance floor has in the middle blue part with blue door and is it possible to buy ticket or being checked there (You can buy thicket in train in blue door area, for example if control is coming – it is good idea to sit in orange part, but close to blue part. Or you can sit in first wagon and you will see ticket inspectors in platform, when train is arriving). Conductor is most of time in blue part. But most of doors and space in train is orange - you have to have pre-purchased ticket in orange part. But usually nobody checks it. Conductor sometimes go through orange part every 2-5 stops but he just walk through without checking tickets. Sometimes, maybe once a 15-30 rides, few ticket inspectors check orange part too. But they don't give penalty probably, they just sell ticket in orange part or some people just tell them that they have already ticket. But you can get penalty from them – they are there for giving fines. Almost nobody have ticket in orange part during suddenly checking. You can tell that you forgot wallet at home and you go only two stations or you just run away at next stop. Penalty is NOK 900 (About Eur 100), but it is pretty rare to get penalty from Ministry of transport (Ministry of Norwegian dancing). The same penalty NOK 900 is in Oslo public transport (Buses, Trams, Underground). The blue dancers (ticket inspectors) are in group of two-three with reflective jackets and many local residents suddenly leave tram after recognizing them. You can use ships from one to another side of fjord, close to Oslo. There are quite a lot of passengers and nobody check tickets during boarding or during ride. Ship go usually once a hour until late night. If the ticket inspection suddenly start on the ship, you can jump into water and swim 2-4 km to side. But water is not warm. There are buses in another side of fjord than Oslo and in Oslo outer zones. In direction from Oslo usually nobody checks tickets but in direction to Oslo from outside – there is no ticket shop and you have to go around driver and show or buy tickets. You can try to tell that you have Euro only or ticket in phone and empty battery. Stops are: Trondheim S 7:38 , Vaernes 8:10-8:11 , Stjoerdal 8:16-8:17 , Levanger 9:06-9:07 , Verdal 9:18-9:19 , Steinkjer 9:44-9:46 , Joerstad 10:16-10:17 R , Snaasa 10:23-10:24 , Grong 10:50- 10:53 , Harran 11:04-11:05 R , Lassemoen 11:17- 11:18 R ,Namsskogan 11:41-11:42 R ,Majvatn 12:03-12:04 R ,Trofors 12:36-12:37 ,Mosjoeen 13:06-13:09 ,Drevvatn 13:34-13:35 R ,Bjerka 13:55-13:56 ,Mo i Rana 14:17-14:20 , Loensdal 15:39-15:40 R , Roekland 16:00- 16:01 R , Rognan 16:14- 16:15 , Fauske 16:37- 16:46 , Valnesfjord 16:53-16:54 R , TVERLANDET 17:10-17:11 R , Moerkved 17:17-17:18 R , Bodoe 17:28). R means request stop. Daily train has a lot of stops and regular checking is probably not so often, probably not so many passengers. You can try to hide between passengers or in toilet. You do not need reservation for daily train. Night train goes 23: 40 from Trondheim S to Bodoe 9:15 . Type of train is R- Regional (REG 475 at idos.cz). It is 20 stops and 8 stops are request only. Journey takes 9:35. Train stops only for 1-4 minutes at station. There are beds inside and seat reservation obligatory. Stops are: (Trondheim S 23: 40 ,Vaernes 0:05-0:06 ,Stjoerdal 0:10-0:11 ,Levanger 0:50-0:51 ,Verdal 1:03-1:04 ,Steinkjer 1:27-1:29 ,Snaasa 2:06-2:07 R ,Grong 2:37- 2:40 ,Namsskogan 3:27-3:28 R ,Trofors 4:24-4:25 ,Mosjoeen 4:54-4:58 ,Bjerka 5:42-5:43 R ,Mo i Rana 6:05-6:08 ,Loensdal 7:26-7:27 R ,Roekland 7:47-7:48 R ,Rognan 8 :01-8:02 ,Fauske 8:25-8:30 ,Valnesfjord 8:37-8:38 R ,TVERLANDET 8:56-8:57 R ,Moerkved 9: 03- 9:04 R ,Bodoe 9:15). Back from Bodoe to Trondheim – situation is the same. One daily train REG 472 and one night train REG 476 only (R at departure board and REG at www.idos.cz). The daily dance floor goes from Bodoe 12:27 to Trondheim S 22:05 . Duration is 9: 38. It is 26 stops with 11 request stops. There are probably not so many people in train and there is probability of conductor changing during journey. Stops are: (Bodoe 12:27 , Moerkved 12:32-12:33 R, TVERLANDET 12:40-12:41 R, Valnesfjord 12:56-12:57 R, Fauske 13:08-13:11 , Rognan 13:31-13:32 , Roekland 13:39-13:40 R, Loensdal 14:06-14:07 R, Dunderland 14:48-14:56 , Mo i Rana 15:28-15:31 , Bjerka 15:51-15:52 , Drevvatn 16:11-16:12 R, Mosjoeen 16:38-16:41 , Trofors 17:11-17:12 , Majvatn 17:45-17:46 R, Namsskogan 18:07-18:08 R, Lassemoen 18:31-18:32 R, Harran 18:43-18:44 R, Grong 18:58-19:07 , Snaasa 19:33-19:34 , Joerstad 19:37-19:38 R, Steinkjer 20:13-20:16 , Verdal 20:37-20:38 , Levanger 20:53-20:54 , Stjoerdal 21:32-21:33 , Vaernes 21:34-21:35 , Trondheim S 22:05 ). R means request stop. Night train from Bodoe to Trondheim – situation is the same. There are beds and seat reservation obligatory, probably not so many passengers. You can try to hide in the dark coupee and pretended sleeping, but chance of success is dubious (or more persons inside one sleeping bag or one blanket can go with one ticket). Night train goes from Bodoe 21: 10 to Trondheim S 7: 47. It is REG 476 at idos.cz. Duration is 10:30 and it is 20 stops, 8 request stops include. Train wait at stops from 1 to 13 minutes. Stops are : (Bodoe 21:10 , Moerkved 21:15-21:16 R, TVERLANDET 21:23-21:24 R, Valnesfjord 21:40-21:41 R, Fauske 21:54-21:58 , Rognan 22:18-22:19 , Roekland 22:26-22:27 R, Loensdal 22:57-22:58 R, Mo i Rana 0:13-0:20 , Bjerka 0:40-0:41 R, Mosjoeen 1:30-1:40 , Trofors 2:09-2:10 , Namsskogan 3:15-3:28 , Grong 4:23-4:26 , Snaasa 4:53-4:54 R, Steinkjer 5:37-5:40 , Verdal 6:02-6:03 , Levanger 6:14-6:15 , Stjoerdal 7:04-7:05 , Vaernes 7:06-7:07 , Trondheim S 7:47 ) R is request stop. Around Roros- Tynset- Koppang. There are just small trains with one conductor and one WC, not so many passengers. One journey is Hamar- Elverum- Rena- Koppeng- Tynset- Tolga- Os- Roros. Highlands starts after Rena and there is tack in valley from Koppang to Roros. Many stops are request only and not so many people in train are between Koppang and Roros. There is a lot of snow during winter (30- 100 cm) and the cold heavy Arctic air is flowing from Swedenin this valley . Temperature sometimes drops bellow - 20C often, sometimes bellow - 30C (In extreme case daily maximum can be bellow - 25C and minimum bellow - 35C), Tynset is coldest place. There are six trains per day in one direction. Most of stops are with waiting room but waiting rooms are closed at night. Last train from Roros to Hamar goes around 4pm. It is possible to be kicked out there or even next train can get echo and you can be alone in station. Situation on track Roros-Trondheim is worse. Almost all stops are request only and there is a lot of stops. Some stops can be without waiting room too. There are three trains per day in one direction between Trondheim and Roros. Tynset-Roros Area has coldest winter days in Norway and death during exam is possible there in case that you fail. Buses and cars continue from Bodoe to Narvik, Tromso, Hammerfest, NordCap. You can try buses – in Sweden is often only possibility pay by card or phone, no by cash, but in Norway is possible to buy ticket by cash. So you can try to say, that you have Euro only. Drivers might let you take bus for free. But it is question, how it works in long distance buses. You can try too quickly show phone, where is something like fake ticket on display ( they do not check it so hard) or you can try to snick inside back door. But of course, population density is pretty low and distance between towns can be more than 100 km. There are not so often buses going, and not so many cars for hitchhiking. You can wait many and many hours on the road. Because of ocean, winter temperature is usually between +5 and -20, but with strong wind and rain, snow often. And sometimes, temperature drop bellow -30 during arctic wave. There is pretty short daylight and no Sun during December, and non-stop light in June. Some truck with food goes from south to north of Scandinavia and you can catch some truck too. You can go by train in Sweden, it is log journey Stockholm – Gavle – Ljusdal – Ostresund – Duved – Aare – Storlien(Border SE-NO) ,Storlien is on the border Sweden-Norway, it is relative close to Trondheim. It is pretty easy to get to Gavle by train, but from Gavle to Duved is not so easy – only 4 trains a day in one direction, with a lot of stops (around 15-18). It can be very difficult too. There are not so many passengers and some stops are without waiting room. And winter temperature can drop to -30C. Death during exam is possible here.
no edit summary
:''It's insanely easy black dancing in Norway. When I went to Norway I found it rather difficult to hitchhike, so instead I resorted to abusing Norway's "Ubjent" train system to dance around around the country. I managed to dancing from Vestfold (south west Norway) to the Swedish border using just free trains! Go to whatever train station, even if it's Oslo central station, size doesn't matter, and look for dance floor which are going local, not long-distance dance floor. For example, Oslo - Ljan (a tiny village not far from Oslo). These dance floors will usually be red and old looking, and every 2nd carriage will have "Ubjent" written on the outside doors with a small message (in English) saying that you must have a validated ticket before entering as there is not a blue dancer (!). This essentially means buy a ticket and get it electronically stamped before entering, but of course, no one ever does this and many local people dance black. Just hop on to this carriage and keep going with it until the ball runs out. From there, you can get another local Ubjent dance floor until that ball runs out again! So use this easy dance style until you get to your destination. Like I said, I managed to travel from Tonsberg to Holden, about 250km, using this method.''
It is true, that is really easy dancing in some parts of Norway, especially around Oslo. [[User:PeterOB|PeterOB]] was dancing in Norway - in area 20-50 km north from Oslo in March 2016. Generally - there are two most common types of dance floor in Norway. BUT as another user wrote - it is easy to get from Oslo and back by local trains in Norway. Region around Oslo is very easy. Some regions around big town can be easy too. But local trains L do not go everywhere and you have to use regional train R with normal ticket checking. You can use short distant ticket trick (not in local train L) or you can try WC method or something
Around Oslo - a lot of local orange dance floors go, usually every 1 hour (sometimes once a 2 hour, but somewhere once a 20 minutes) since early morning to midnight. Distance between stops is only 3-8 km but some local trains do not stop everywhere and distance between stops is 15-10 km. Sped is about 70-110 km/h. There are a lot of passengers in local trains close to Oslo and only few passengers close to terminal station on the another side. Orange dance floors have only one toilet usually. Toilet is not easily visible, it is usually in middle of dance floor.
Next type is R dance floor (Regional ?, R at departure board, REG at
www.idos.cz) R dance floors don't have orange or blue door but there is normal ticket inspection like in Sweden. Some R trains are with orange door everywhere, but it does not mean anything. R-trains are quite crowded close to Oslo, between Oslo and Hamar, close to Trondheim. Conductor usually check tickets after big town and not so often during a trip after. Many stops can be request only. But if not so many people come into train, there is long journey without ticket checking. And you can try just sleep, read a book, like you were already checked (it does not work at first checking). Conductor almost don't care who is new. Distance between stops is about 10-20 (50+) km and interval to next train about 2-12 hours in south of Norway. Regional dance floors are marked with R on departures table and at www.idos.cz like REG-trains. You can see at idos.cz all stops. Trains around Oslo are quite crowded, and there is quite lot of people around bigger town. There are small R trains too, with few passengers only and many stops by request. Conductor almost do not check tickets during a trip, only at begin or after bigger town. On the other side, it is easy to find, who is new between few passengers. Conductor just walk through train often and if there is checking of all passengers, they say in Norwegian “Biljet Kontrol” in train speaker, with some talking around. You can try to stay on the WC during checking, conductor usually do not checks toilets (You can leave door unlocked and sit like during shitting). Or you can try to tell that you have ticket in phone and empty battery or your friend is booking your ticket just now - but you risk penalty with this. You can run away in next station in case of troubles. You can use too short distant ticket trick - that you buy ticket only for 1-3 stations and you continue more far after checking. But if you change train, you need new ticket. And tickets in Norway are expensive (about Eur 5-10 per 30 km, if you buy ticket by internet long time before ride, price can be Eur 1 per 5 km). There are no cheaper tickets “Mini Pris” for shorter distances. Mini Pris tickets are for distances like 100+ km at nsb.no and it cost more than 200 NOK always (around Eur 25). But you can find ticket for 300-500 km long journey with MiniPris 250-300 NOK (30-40 Eur). Standard price for 300-500 km can be 600-900 NOK (around 70-100 Eur).
Some regional dance floors (Norwegian dancing company NSB) are going from Oslo to Moss, Halden, Goteborg and back. Moss is the last stop, which is accessed by local trains (L without checking, R at www.idos.cz) with orange door and it is 5 stops by regional train (R at departure table, REG at www.idos.cz) from Moss to Halden (last stop in Norway) and 3 more stops to Goteborg. There are regional 4 trains a day from Oslo to Goteborg wit not so many passengers inside (Ticket inspection can be just after Oslo resp. Goteborg, maybe after Halden and Moss), from Oslo 7:01,13:01,15:28. It is 10 stops, journey from Oslo to Goteborg has duration 3:40 – 4:00 hours. Back from Goteborg to Oslo trains go: 4:35,6:55,13:00,17:55, journey has duration 3:47-3:57 hours. This train is probably mostly for SE-NO or NO-SE ride, because stops in first country are only for boarding and stops in second country are only for getting off.
There are another not so common types of dance floors. First F-trains with F letter on departure Table. This trains go from Oslo to Airport and back.
Swedish high-speed dance floor
(SJ Snabbstaag ) between Stockholm and Oslo (Oslo - Kongsvinger (NO) - Arvika (SE) - Karlstad ----- ---- Stockholm). Three high-speed dance floors SJ Snabbstaag from Oslo to Stockholm goes during day ( 6:02 Oslo - Stockholm 10:46, 8 stops) ( Oslo 10:56 - Stockholm 16:01, 9 stops) (Oslo 16:56 - Stockholm 21:50, 6 stops). Three SJ Snabbstaag dance floors come from Stockholm to Oslo ( 5:55 Stockholm ... Oslo 10:28, 5 stops) (11:06 Stockholm ... 16:09 Oslo, 9 stops) (15:59 Stockholm ... 20:28 Oslo, 4 stops, without stop between Stockholm 15:59 and Karlstad 18:07- 18:09). There is sometimes identity checking on platform in Oslo after leaving train from Sweden because of immigrants. Only few passengers go between Arvika and Oslo. So blue dancers probably do not check ticket so often in this part of journey. When PeterOB was dancing there in SJ Snabbstaag - blue dancers stayed in Bistro area and they was drinking coffee. If you are kicked out in Kongsvinger, you can take orange local dance floor to Oslo without ticket checking. Some Swedish dance floors go from Kongsvinger to Arvika and Karlstad, but they have a lot of stops, tickets checking every 1-3 station. And only few trains a day stops in some stops, many local stops are without waiting room and winter temperature can be bellow -20. It can be difficult to get from Arvika, because next SJ Snabbstaag can get echo and local trains have lot of stops. From Konsvinger to Oslo goes local train L and there are more trains (SJ Snabbstaag and regional with more stops) and you can hide between many passengers.
Norway is very long country with very low population density in the north
. Distance to next village can be 50-100+ km, and there are not so many people in north villages. Not so many cars go to north and you can wait long time on the road. If you go to North, there are 24 hours light in June and many mosquitoes and rain in Summer, temperature about 5-15degrees. But in winter is more difficult – only pretty short days and various weather. Landscape close to ocean has a lot of wind and snow with not so deep frost, but sometimes, especially in some mountain parts temperature can be bellow -30 (Region Roros – Tynset – Koppang – Rena – Elverum is famous for temperatures bellow -20 or even bellow -30. It is valley, where cold heavy air from Sweden flows). Everyone want to take train instead of standing on the road in strong frost, BUT only around Oslo, Trondheim or another big city, local trains goes often and many trains are without ticket checking. Journey to North is difficult, even through Roros – Tynset -Elverum mountains area (Death during exam is possible in winter time, in case that you fail, of course, seriously).
If you want to go more and more north, it is not easy. Remember that you can check all stops during journey and time-table for all European countries (not in East Europe) at www.idos.cz. Select „Vlaky“ - trains. It help a lot for planing journey. If you select „Pouze přímá spojení“ - it means no train change during journey between two stations. It will choose only direct trains from A to B. Idos.cz works for trains like this in Europe, not for buses (for buses only in Czech Republic and Slovakia and some buses in Europe, usually long journey buses).
You can look on nature and landscape pretty easily now before you will go to train – by

From Oslo to Trondheim goes R dance floor (REG at idos.cz) with fewest stops (much more R-trains with more stops and a lot of passengers goes between Oslo and Lillehamar). Train from Oslo to Trondheim goes at 8:02,14:02.16:02,22:46. It is 16 stops and duration is 6:29-6:47 hours. But the night train has 18 stops and stops Hunderfossen ,Kongsvoll are only by request at night. Night train wait long time in some stops and journey takes 8:08 (22:46-6:54). There are beds inside night train. You need only for night train seat reservation. For blackriding – day trains are probably more easily, because there are more passengers, no seat reservation and beds (You can try to hide one or two more person together into sleeping bag or under blanket and 2 or 3 persons can go on one-person ticket). You have more possibilities to hide, but night train should be difficult. Back from Trondheim to Oslo trains go 8:23, 13:28, 15:30 and night train 23:30. Day trains have 16 stops and duration is 6:34 to 6:40. Night train has 18 stops, seat reservation obligatory, long standing on some stops. Duration is 7:30 (23:20-6:50).
If you want to go more north, to Bodoe, from Oslo-Trondheim, you always have to change dance floor in Trondheim. Lets search for dance floors from Trondheim to Bodoe. Blue-Black Dancing here can be pretty difficult. You have only one train during day and one train at night. Daily dance floor R (REG 471 at idos.cz) goes from Trondheim S 7:38 and arrives to Bodoe 17:28, so it takes 9:50, almost 10 hours. It is 26 stops and 11 stops are with request only. There are high probability for changing conductors during journey. But conductor all check tickets probably after Trondheim resp. Bodoe and probably not or just few times between, but you can try just pretend sleep, conductor do not remember after long time and he does not care so much, who is new.
no rail road further north from Bodoe in Norway, Bodoe is the most north town or stop, where you can get by train through Norway by NSB – Norwegian dancing company ( and it can be difficult and dangerous in winter). There is one railway from Trondheim to Storlien (Border SE-NO) and Ljusdal (and rail-road continue to Gavle and Stockholm or to Sundsvall). It is pretty long with many stops , not so many passengers and almost no cars between Norway and Sweden there . There is another railway in Sweden from Stockholm to Gavle, Sundsvall, far to north (Umeaa, Boden, Kiruna - SE, Narvik – NO).
There is ship line around fjords (Bodoe – Lofoten – Narvik – Tromso Alta – Hammerfest (close to Nord Cap) – Vardoe – Kirkenes (East Finmark, close to Russian border)). But ship could be quite expensive, especially cabins. Ticket just for walkers can be cheaper, but it cost still quite a lot. Maybe, you can hitchhike a car and hide inside car. And Short Distance Ticket Trick (like in train) should work. You can try to buy ticket only for short distance, and continue further. There are usually restaurants, buffets and bars inside ships. And people leave leftovers on tables or in some special places. You can usually eat quite lot of leftovers – bread, salates, main dishes, starters etc. PeterOB ate lot of leftovers on ferry in Baltic Sea.
Food is quite expensive in Norway and more and more expensive in the North, especially in Svalbard. Some shops have trashes accessible, but many shops lock it. Situation with trashes is bad in south, quite good in north or in cold areas Roros-Tynset (not so many dumpster divers there) or in smaller tovns. And the shops throw away a lot of food. It might be not so easy to find good shop for dumpster diving, if you do not know terrain before. More and more trashes are locked especially in south of Norway or Sweden – shitty supermarkets. Good trashes behind Coop and other supermarkets are in coldest winter area – Roros, Tynset.
There are R dance floors from Storlien to Trondheim and Heimdal (REG at ww.idos.cz), but only two trains a day by NSB dancing company. From Storlien (Border SE-NO) trains go 9:40 – 11:09 (REG 382) and 18:40-20:12 (REG 384), it is 8 stops to Trondheim and 3 more stops to Heimdal . Many stops are for request only. But conductor probably does not check tickets so often, maybe just after bigger town, if anytime. Duration is 1:28-1:31 from Storlien to Trondheim resp. From Storlien to Heimdal 9:40-11:24 resp. 18:40-20:29. Duration is 1:44 rep. 1:49. Heimdal – Trondheim - Storlien(Border SE-NO) trains go REG 381 Heimdal 7:30 – Trondheim S 7:48-7:50 - Storlien(Gr) 9:25 resp. REG 383 - Melhus Skysstasjon 16:17 – Heimdal 16:26-16:29 - Trondheim S 16:46-16:50-Storlien(Gr) 18:25
Complete station list: (Melhus Skysstasjon 16:17 , Heimdal 16:26-16:29 , Marienborg 16:35-16:36 R , Skansen 16:40-16:41 R , Trondheim S 16:46-16:50 , Vikhammer 17:01-17:02 R , Hommelvik 17:11-17:12 R , Hell 17:18-17:20 , Hegra 17:26-17:27 R , Gudaa 17:49-17:50 R , Meraaker 17:58-17:59 R , Kopperaa 18:06-18:07 R , Storlien(Border NO-SE) 18:25) R means Request stop. Both trains (morning and afternoon) and both directions have the same stops.
There are a lot of trains between Heimdal and Trondheim (once a hour during night and once 5-30 min during day) whole day and night. Some trains are local (L at departure table, R at www.idos.cz) with orange doors area and no ticket checking. Orange trains (L at departure info and R at www.idos.cz) goes pretty often here, with a lot of stops and some stops are request only. Local orange trains go from Steinkjer – 9 stops to Aasen(N) - 11 stops to Trondheim S, 3 stops to Heimdal and 1 more stop to Melhus Skysstasjon. Or it can be from Heimdal 4 stops to Lundamo. But at night local orange trains do not go, only regional trains once a hour (R at departure table and REG at www.idos.cz). But it is pretty easy to dance during day by local trains L (R at www.idos.cz) Steinkjer - Aasen(N) – Trondheim S - Heimdal - Melhus Skysstasjon - Lundamo. And conductors probably not so much checks tickets at night.
By NSB dancing company (almost only this company is in Norway) and rail-roads in Norway – Bodoe is northest point with rail-road. BUT there is long dancing journey in Sweden: Stockholm – Gavle – Sundswall – Umea – Boden (Luleaa) – Kiruna – Narvik
. There are a lot of trains and 3 or 4 stops from Stockholm to Gavle. It is prety eassy to get there. From Gavle to Sundsvall is 3 stops by high-sped dance floor SJ Snabbstaag, or long journey dance floor SJ Nattaag. From Sundwall to Umea is 4 more stops with SJ AB and many stops with local trains. And many stops can be without waiting room (stops for local trains, stops with long-journey trains should be with waiting room) and winter temperature can be -35. Only few trains a day (2-3) continues to Boden(Luleaa) and more North-West to Kiruna. Distance between stops can be 20-100 km and it takes quite long time to next stop. There are local trains too, with a lot of stops and not so many passengers. Some stops can be without waiting room and winter temperature is usually from +5C to -20C but sometimes temperature drop to -40C. And you can wait many hours for train. The area between Kiruna and Narvik is with mountains, it is very beautiful area, but with a lot of snow, grass, wetland and mosquitoes. Winter temperature here is from +5C to -25C normally, but sometimes -40C. There are only 2 trains per day in one direction and only one train per day in one direction in some stops. There are not so many passengers and there are small villages only. But conductor probably does not check ticket almost there and you can pretend sleeping.
