It's more than 1000 miles, and the rail stops at Bodø, then 300 miles more by bus. You can take the Hurtigruten ship from Bergen, several days.

Firstly, you need to look into the different ferry options from UK to the continent. Travelling by train through Sweden to Narvik, then bus onwards would be the easiest.

The best train connection I found was a 24 hour journey through Belgium, Germany and Denmark with 3 changes. I think if there is a ferry connection to Denmark or somewhere close you would be better off.
