Swedish Day trains

Overview

Swedish Day trains

The SJ is a tilting high speed train, traveling at speeds of up to 125 mph on all major routes. You can take it internationally from Copenhagen, Denmark, to the Swedish capital of Stockholm, from Copenhagen to Malmö or from Stockholm to Oslo, Norway : three fabulous examples of a more global experience. Of course, you can also enjoy it exclusively within Sweden traveling from Stockholm to Malmö, or for carefree trekking to Göteborg and Sundsvall, as well as other scenic spots in the hinterlands.

Seats are available in First and Second Class. All travelers will find access to power outlets, WiFi, and a bar car offering hot and cold dishes, sandwiches, beer, 
wine, coffee and cakes. There’s even an on-board gift shop offering chocolate, games, perfumes and more. With all these on-board comforts, you’d never imagine trains in Sweden are also made to let you indulge in the magnificent nature passing outside : pristine mountain views and alpine fields impossible to appreciate from airplanes or the burdens of the driver’s seat.

Like a lot of things here, Sweden’s high speed rail is made of many interconnected parts. It seems the only connection waiting to be made is you.

    good trip |
    "I left my paper ticket at home in China. After checking with online service lady, she emphasized again and again that I must purchase a new ticket. However after I got on the train, I explained to the conductor and showed to her the ticket picture and my booking information from Rail Europe app, she acknowledged it and also found my information in her system. Pls train you service people with the correct knowledge, and the care on customer. "

    Tickets forgotten, not replace |
    "Unfortunately I had forgotten the tickets at home, and they couldn't be replaced at the trains station, or printed, so I had to travel with copies. Fortunately, the train guards were flexible enough, but I was scared for a while. "

    take train instead of plane |
    "In a trip to visit Copenhagen and Stockholm we came and went back by plane but chose train to move from one city to the other one in order to see better the countryside. The confort etc. were fine but at the end a lot of forest, very nice but a bit boring for a 5 hours trip. And not cheaper than plane. Anyway a nice trip and I would chose the train again. "

    Very comfortable and quick.. |
    "We bought the tickets online and as there was a misunderstand in the address they contact me by email for more details. I received the tickets in my country within few days after the buying. In Stockholm, we arrived early just not to risk getting mistaken or miss the train. We waited for the train which arrived on time. We got on the vagon and took the seats that were indicated on the tickets. The 4hrs of the journey passed so quickly that I didnt realized. We took food with us to eat. The train had comfortable stace for the legs and some racks to put the luggage near the doors. We could you use the wifi provided by the train. Very nice experience. ! "

    Seating a problem |
    "The train service was efficient and pleasant. The disappointing aspect was that when booking through Rail Europe we were unable to specify seat selection . The reason we chose to travel by rail was to see the Swedish countryside. The seats we were allocated were not window seats so we missed seeing the countryside. The train was full and seats cannot be swopped. Next time we will book through a different operator which allows seat selection. "

    Comfortable train |
    "We took the train to Copenhagen from Stockholm. It was a comfortable experience. However it would have been nicer if announcements were also made in English. Also, given that we were traveling in first class, food should have been made available free of cost - especially because it is a very long journey ! Otherwise a good experience. "
