Possible from Abisko to harstad in 1 day by bus?

Hello

We will go to Norway n Sweden next feb to march,

I know there is a bus route from Abisko to Tromso via narvik, which takes 6 hrs

Then I am considering to change the plan to ( Abisko- narvik- harstad) it's possible to do by driving

However I can't drive.

I know there is coach bus connecting narvik and harstad at airport

Is that make my plan sound possible ? thanks

It is too early for detailed planning of bus travel next year, but yes, it should be possible. Closer to your travel date (next year) you can find bus and train connections Abisko-Narvik at www.sj.se and bus connections Narvik-Harstad at www.177nordland.no .

Thanks!

I knew it's too early to get the bus schedule

I just want to confirm that it's possible so that I can book the hostel at harstad first :)

Also flight from harstad to olso :)

I didn't get much info about winter schedule

So a bit worry for the bus time

No need to worry about accommodation at that time of year.

THanks! 1 more question.

Is the train station or bus stop near the narvik airport ?

How far I have to walk after getting off the train/ bus from Abisko then get on the bus to harstad? Thanks !

1) Narvik Airport, Framnes (NVK) is 2km from the bus station, 3km from the train station.

2) From the train station to the bus station is about 1km walk.

3) Please note that there is no need to go to Harstad if your plan is to catch a flight to Oslo. Harstad is served by Harstad-Narvik Airport, Evenes (EVE), 45km from Harstad, 75km from Narvik. There are airport coaches from both towns.

Thanks I got what you meant

This is my preliminary plan

1/3* Sinetta Finland > kiruna Sweden (1day🚌🚌 )

2/3* kiruna> Abisko

3/3* Abisko (skiing )

4/3* Abisko > narvik> harstad

Or. Should I Go back to kiruna?!

5/3 harstad > olso

*meant chance of Aurora

I do not drive. All by bus or train

Does the plan sound ok ? Or too rush?

Thanks

IMO you have too many destinations and will spend too much of your time travelling between places, especially Sinettä via Tornio/Haparanda to Kiruna is a long day of boring bus and train travel. I would consider dropping Kiruna and Abisko OR dropping Finland.

"Or. Should I Go back to kiruna?" That depends on where you are heading. Taking train to Kiruna and fly to Stockholm may be easier than train and bus to Evenes and flight to Oslo.
