An extensive rail network links Norway to the other Nordic countries and the rest of Europe.
From the European continent, there are express trains from Copenhagen.
Most rail journeys from the continent are overnight, and you will find sleeping compartments on all of them.
The national trains are served by the Norwegian State Railways (NSB).
A variety of discount passes is available for train travel in Europe and Norway. Not all trains offer the first-class service, but second-class are of a high standard. Actually, you will find more regular train connections to the capital city of Oslo from Copenhagen several times a week.
Eurail offers a Europe-wide Eurail pass which includes travel in Norway. For European citizen the InterRail Norway Pass you can use instead, for cheap rail travel round Norway, or the InterRail Pass around Europe. For those who are going to travel around in Norway, the InterRail and Eurail passes are worth buying.
