Swedish Day trains


Swedish Day trains

Sweden is a beautiful country stretching right up to Lapland and the North Pole and there is no better way to see it than by train. The X2000 and X3000 are Sweden’s high-speed trains, travelling at a speed of up to 200km/h using state-of-the-art tilting technology to help them negotiate bends without slowing down. The X2000 and X3000 use the capital Stockholm as their hub to make their smooth silent journeys across the country day and night. The high speed trains also operate on the Stockholm to Copenhagen (Denmark) route.

    Cross country travel | Iromi s. | 2016/11/24
    "Crossing Europe by train was the best idea. The most frustrating thing about air travel is all the security check points that add hours to the journey. We had a seamless trip from Copenhagen to Linkoping in Sweden. The train also brings you to the centre of the city which is far more convenient than flying. Highly recommended! "

    Scandinavian train ride | John b. | 2016/10/24
    "Recently travelled Stockholm to Copenhagen by train. Second class was really comfortable and we never felt Ike an upgrade would have justified the cost. Train was really smooth and seats were comfortable. Great to relax and take in the view without all the hassles associated with air flight, such getting to airport, early check in etc. Free WiFi would have been nice - especially as my children currently traveling on much cheaper have it.

    Comfortable Train Ride | Paul w. | 2016/09/08
    "Train was on time departing Oslo and arriving Stockholm. The train was a bit older than we would have expected but was still comfortable and clean. Complimentary coffee/tea together with mandarins and mini cupcakes a pleasant customer service. Had to sit backwards and would definitely have preferred forward facing seats. Staff were accommodating. All in all, a comfortable/on time journey. "

    Helpful staff and very comfort | Amanda h. | 2016/08/15
    "It is always reassuring to have booked seat numbers as everyone rushes for a train, which this leg of our journey had. The train was clean and comfortable even in coach class and the staff at the station very helpful. Going across the Oresund Bridge was disappointing as really couldn't see much. Whilst waiting for the train the platform certainly wouldn't be a place I would want to be in rain or winter as there is no cover. "
