Scandinavian Trains. Beautiful inside and out.
In a place famous for design, Scandinavian trains do not disappoint. Whether you’re taking the train from Copenhagen to Stockholm, or from Copenhagen to Oslo, trains in Scandinavia are known for unrivaled comfort and customer service. Choose between modern seating in budget-conscious Economy Class, welcoming Second Class, and top-notch First Class. Family-friendly Economy Class offers generous legroom and overhead luggage space. Second Class has a distinguished atmosphere with large, reclining seats and generous legroom. First Class includes free Internet access, in-seat power outlets, and a full 3-course meal available at your seat. Any way you travel, they all offer a great way to stare at the stunning scenery of Scandinavia instead of the road or an airport lounge.
You’ll get to experience the mountains, seas, green landscapes and fjords of Scandinavia as you stretch your legs aboard rail service between Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark. From your seat on one of Scandinavia’s trains, you’ll enjoy countries rich in history, folklore and scenery knowing you’re not overspending your financial resources or over-taxing the earth’s resources since train travel in Scandinavia includes the use of renewable energy from hydropower.
Travelers seeking an even more unique rail experience can look into excursions like the extraordinary “Norway in a Nutshell” tour, which combines rail, ferry and bus travel for a magical, close-up look at Norway’s famous fjords.
Depending on the train, on-board services may include:
- Special areas to tend to babies and special areas for children to play
- On-board radio
- Cinema carriages aboard some night trains where travelers can view recently released movies
Many Scandinavian trains offer the added perk of providing special compartments or seat sections for pets, enabling travelers to share their journey with an animal friend.
Another benefit of rail travel in Scandinavian countries is the lack of limits on baggage. In other words, if you can carry it, you can bring it.
