Scandinavian trains on eurail

Hi,

I would like to travel in norway, Sweden and Finland over about 2 weeks and would like to purchase a Scandinavian pass.

However, i notice that in the interactive map, only the southern parts of the above countries are shown.

Does it mean i will need to take local trains in the north?

Do i need to pay extra?

thanks!

Dear Liew,

Thank you for your question.

The Scandinavia Pass is the most comprehensive pass to explore Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

With this pass you can travel free on regional trains.

Despite having a pass reservations are mandatory with additional cost on high-speed trains, night trains, scenic trains and border crossing trains.

Please click on the “Fare Details” tab to view details regarding the type of fare, type of seat, whether a reservation is included or not and the After Sales Policy

Reservations included -These train require reservation.

The pass seats can be reserved by clicking on "seat reservation" & then feed in the Departure city and the Arrival city along with the travel date and preferred time & the number of passengers (Senior, adults, youth and children), and then click on “search tickets”. Once you do so, you would find the schedules along with the fares.

In order to book a pass, please visit our website.

Hope this helps!!

Thank you so much, Aamir.

I would also like to check on the condition, frequency and service of the regional trains in Norway.

I read on the internet that the maps are inaccurate, the railway tracks are not well-maintained and the trains are not on time, if they do make the trips!

This was a post by a Norwegian if I am not wrong.

I hope that he is inaccurate.

Can you please let me know more about the service, condition and frequency?

Appreciate your expert advice

I have travelled on trains in the UK, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, France and Italy and find them wonderful.

How do the Norwegian trains compare with them?

Yes European trains are reliable.

The national railway company of Norway is known as the Norwegian State Railways (NSB). Norway has over 4,000 km of railway network. Train tickets for trains operating in Norway can be booked in advance.
