360° GEO Report explores the 180 kilometers of the Kiruna railway track, and discovers a breathtaking landscape.

It is a seemingly never ending train, and carries Scandinavian iron ore to the Norwegian haven of Narvik. The legendary Kiruna Railway has witnesses heavy wagons since 1903, some of them weighing up to 8,500 tonnes. In former times the loads were pulled by steam locomotives, nowadays they are pulled with electric ones.

On its route, the train passes majestic mountains, narrow tunnels and sheer hillsides, plunging down into the Fjords. The spectacular railway track marked the lives of previous generations.
