I’m excited

Can I use my Scandi pass to travel between Kristiansand, Norway and Copenhagen, Denmark? What does that itinerary look like?

I am looking for ways to use my Scandi Rail pass while I am in Norwary during July 25 - August 9th. My major city is Kristiansand.

    A Eurail Scandinavia Pass covers travel in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland. Therefore, it does cover travel from Kristiansand to Copenhagen.

    A connection from Kristiansand to Copenhagen takes at least 16 hours in duration and involves at least 2 train changes along the way; once in Oslo and then once in Gothenberg. For this connection, reservations would only be required on the segment from Kristiansand to Oslo, in addition to the rail pass. The trains from Oslo to Gothenberg and Gothenberg to Copenhagen don't accept reservations, so the rail pass is all you would need to board.

    You would purchase reservations for the train from Kristiansand to Oslo by clicking on 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations' on the homepage of our website, www.raileurope.com.

    For planning purposes, you can just check schedules for the trains from Kristiansand to Oslo and Oslo to Gothenberg by clicking on 'Find Fares & Schedules' on our homepage, instead of 'Book your Rail Pass Reservations'.

    Otherwise, there is a connection from Kristiansand to Copenhagen that only takes about 15 hours in duration but involves 4 train changes along the way; once in Oslo, once in Hallsberg, once in Mjoelby, and once in Malmo. For this connection, only the train from Kristiansand to Oslo and the train from Mjoelby to Malmo would require reservations, in addition to the rail pass; however, these particular trains are currently not able to be reserved on our website. If you would like to go with this connection instead, then you would call us at 1-800-622-8600 to purchase these reservations.
