Norway for 3 weeks

Hello,

I am planning a trip to Norway for 3 weeks in August. I was originally just going to do Norway but then I thought about possibly landing in Stockholm, Sweden instead of Oslo and spending a few days there. There is a train that goes from Stockholm to Oslo. Does anyone know if this is a scenic train ride? I am just trying to decide if landing in Sweden would be the better option. If I do then I would have to cut some things out from the Norway itinerary to make time for this.

Thanks in advance!

The train from Stockholm to Oslo is not particulary scenic, no. There are flights if you want to save time. Or perhaps do Stockholm instead of Oslo.

Would you recommend landing in Stockholm and flying to Bergen then?

I wonder if this means that you are flying Norwegian air? If so check out the on-time statistics at flightstats.com. I would not advise booking a non-connecting flight without sufficiently long transfer time that you are covered by insurance (this probably means minimum 4 hours). May as well spend a couple of days then in Stockholm while you are there and since you have 3 weeks.

As you plan to stay some days in Stockholm anyway, I would not worry about flight arrivals and possible delays. And yes, flying from Stockholm to Bergen could be an option. Not knowing your further plans, any specific advise is difficult.
