Norway etc

Would love feed back on this "rough sketch" of an itinerary. This is what my husband has mapped out. Suggestions on any and all thoughts much appreciated.
Day 1 - fly into Copenhagen - 1/2 day there
Day 2 - 3 - Copenhagen/Denmark
Day 4 - Fly from Copenhagen to Bergen, Norway
Day 5 - 6 Fjords in Norway - if we don't rent a car, how do you see them? where/what do you do in Bergen? Are there trains to the fjords?
Day 7 - Train to Oslo from Bergen - is there a train to Oslo? Is flying a better option?
Day 8 - 9 Oslo, Norway
Day 10 - Train to Goteberg Sweden
Day 11-12 Goteberg (we have people to see here)
Day 13 - Train to Stockholm
Day 14-16 - Stockholm
Day 17 - Fly home
We thought about going to Helsinki/Tallin - but not sure if enough time. What are your thoughts on Oslo and Stockholm? Enough time or too much there? And best way to travel if you don't rent a car.
thanks so much

I like this itinerary as-is and think that you don't have time to add cities.

Yes, there is a direct train between Bergen and Oslo, which is a scenic ride, and detouring from that train line is the primary way that travelers without a car will visit the fjords. There are various ways to do it under the heading "Norway in a Nutshell," which was suggested to you on some of your previous threads. It has it's own chapter in Rick's Scandinavia guidebook, or see also www.fjordtours.com. Or you can start by fast ferry from Bergen to the Nutshell mid-point around Balestrand and Flam, then connect toward the train from there.

I have deleted the duplicate of this question that was under General Europe. People with Scandinavia insights will look here in the Norway section, or can also view this under All Topics.
