Getting around Scandinavia

One of the first things you’ll notice when travelling around Scandinavia is how great the public transport system is. Buses are surprisingly comfortable (some offer free wifi) and long-distance trains have a wonderful knack for being on time, even in snowy winter weather.

Flights within Scandinavia tend to be expensive but overland transport is surprisingly cheap, especially if you’re armed with an Interrail or Eurail pass. Scandinavia has some of the world’s safest roads, so unless you’re heading into downtown Stockholm at rush hour, driving is almost always a pleasure.

If you fancy something a little more challenging,consider exploring by bike – the whole region is geared up for cyclists in summer, and you’ll find bikes for rent everywhere you go.
