We have booked several trains to go from France to the northern part of Finland via Sweden.

It is indicated that the reservation are not mandatory (for example from Boden to Haparanda)..

As we are travelling with our three children we would like to make sure that we can take these trains with our pass.

Or is it preferable to make a reservation ?

Thank you

Last year I travelled from Haparanda to Boden (in the morning, ±7:30) and there was plenty of space. There is a 2+3 seat allocation so you can all sit together. For the train northbound to Boden (from Stockholm?) I don't know, as I did go further towards Narvik.

Thank you very much for your answer.
