Just wanted to check if you are only considering train as a travel option. Flights are usually a more convenient (and not necessarily more expensive) and quick option (1 hour flight) going from Stockholm to Umea. In that case you could look at SAS, Norwegian or Malmo Aviation (or check all at the same time at www.flygresor.se)

If you wish to use the train it appears as if the best option is to take the night train. This seems to be the best option as it does not require any changes but it will take you around 9 hours (not sure what date you are leaving but there appears to be one leaving around 6pm and one at 9pm). All the day time trains appears to require changing trains at least once (I only checked one date, Aug 25th so may be different on other days).

SJ (Swedish Rail) web site in English: www.sj.se/start/startpage/index.form?l=en

Train, bus and flight connections:

Agree with the previous poster, do check flights between Umeå and Stockholm. Norwegian airlines usually have the cheapest fares.

I changed to English on the SJ homepage and it works.

The only option to flying is the night train leaving Stockholm at 21.22 arriving Umeå 06.28 (often delayed).

Prices vary with demand.
