Oslo-Stavanger-Oslo Train

Hi again!

Wanted to know if someone here ever took the train from Rygge Station (chage in Oslo) to Stavanger and could share an overall impression? and does someone know which Railway line is it?

Thanks!

It is the Oslo-Stavanger line - mostly inland and not very scenic.

You can take the express coaches, but it will be more expensive than the cheapest train tickets.

Haukeliexpressen to Haugesund and Kystbussen Haugesund-Stavanger.

In my opinion the trains are more comfortable for long distance like Oslo-Stavanger. Easier to move around, more space, alright restrooms and a cafeteria onboard the train.

Much better to fly and give yourself more time in and around Stavanger.

Thanks, but I will be in Stavanger for two weeks, and one of the points of the whole trip is that train ride. the longer-the better, I just thought it would be nice as well, but nature is beautiful anyway. )

There is only one train Oslo-Stavanger and it is not particularly scenic.
