together with my wife, we plan a bike trip this summer from Kiruna (Sweden) to Tromsø (Norway), and in order to reach Kiruna, we would like to take the train (or something) from Stockholm (where we go by plane).
The problem is that the trains in Sweden don't allow you to take the bike. Excerpt from http://www.myinterrail.co.uk/plan-your-trip/country-specific-information/sweden/railway-information/ :
"Bicycles are allowed on local trains in the Skåne region and on Öresund trains serving the routes between Copenhagen and Gothenburg, Karlskrona and Alvesta. Bikes are not allowed on other trains.".
I read in this post about a trick (put them in the classic cardboard) to take the bikes in SJ trains, but I found it a bit risky, as they could tell you the luggage is too big or no bikes allowed or whatever, and then we'll lose the tickets.
So the question is now: does somebody knows a possibility (besides taking the plane, which is quite expensive) of transporting the bike between Stockholm and Kiruna area?
