I'm filling in the transportation blanks for our grand Scandinavian tour and planning our connection between Gothenburg and Oslo. This exact same question was asked a few years ago and got no replies on this forum. I'm hoping for a better response.
To get between Gothenburg and Oslo, there are decent connections with either bus or train. Both are the same length, no transport changes and similarly priced. On the surface, it looks like either is a good option.
Does anyone have an opinion or experience with this? Is there much variance in the route? Do the trains run near the roads or more cross-country? Do the buses go through more of the towns and is that worth it? Are the buses as nice as I imagine Swedish buses must be? I'm not sure what to expect.
We're doing a lot of trains in Norway, so we wouldn't miss that experience. Generally, I'd opt for a train but some of the bus times seem to be a better fit. It could add a different twist to the trip. Does anyone have thoughts on this?
