Oslo to Kristiansand to Stavanger ?

We'll be in Oslo in July.

We'd like to take some side trips preferably by train, since traffic is probably bad in July.

Is a train trip worthwhile to Kristiansand then on to Stavanger and back? Should we spend a night in Kristiansan or Stavanger? We have 3 days available for this trip

All comments would be appreciated.

A trip train to the jolly south is a good idea. IMO Kristiansand don't have so much to offer for tourists, but it is a nice town (and like Oslo built in a "square"). Stavanger is a nice town with old wooden areas (like Bergen), some great sandy beaches near the airport at Sola.

If this is your first time in Norway, I could also recommend a trip to Bergen with a "nutshell" type detour.
