Bergen to Larvik by train, then ferry to Denmark

I'm planning a trip to Denmark after a couple of nights in Bergen, and hope to take the train to Larvik.

Questions: How many hours will the train trip take?

Should I take a room at a hotel in Larvik or some other area and take

the ferry the next day?

Any advice would be very much appreciated.

The train takes about 8 hours including a train change at Drammen.

It is possible to travel Bergen-Larvik-Hirtshals in one day. Ferry time table Larvik-Hirtshals: colorline.no/skip_og_ruter/…rutetider

If you think it will be too much travel for one day, I would suggest instead:

- Train to Oslo, overnight ferry Oslo-Copenhagen: http://www.dfdsseaways.co.uk/

- or overnight ferry Oslo-Frederikshavn: http://www.stenaline.no/ferge/

Where are you going in Denmark? If Copenhagen is your destination then you would save time and money by going from Bergen to Copenhagen by air.

Norwegian is our low cost airline (reliable) and offers cheap direct flights between Bergen and Copenhagen. http://www.norwegian.com/en/

Another alternative is SAS: http://www.sas.no/?vst=true

At this stage I'm not firmly decided on my route. I'll be working my way to the Netherlands. I have a hotel booked in Hamburg for July 1, and I will check out of my Bergen hotel on June 28, so I hope to take the train to Larvik on the 28th and then the ferry to Hirtshals on the 29th. That will give me two days to make my way to Hamburg.

Thanks for your advice, folks. I've decided to take the train to Oslo, get a hotel for one night then take the ferry to Copenhagen the next day. I really appreciate the help.
