Scandinavia Pass

New traveler here.  Some friends and I are flying to Copenhagen in November.  We want to also go to Sweden and Norway.  It looks like the Scandinavia adult pass may be the way to go.  Does this pass also let us take local trains (sorry for my lack of knowledge) or does it only permit travel between the countries.

Also, if we are only traveling 5 out of 8 days would it be cheaper to buy train passes instead of the rail pass? 

THANKS!

Are you talking about Scanrail pass? If yes, that pass doesn’t exist anymore since years AFAIK.

why not buying a 5 days global pass from Eurail?

Thanks for the reply.  Is it this one you are referring to: https://www.eurail.com/en/eurail-passes/one-country-pass/scandinavia?  It still looks active on the Eurorail website.  Do you know if its still available? 

Thank you!

If you only want to go to Copenhagen and Oslo outside Sweden, you can, as far as I know, do that with a one country pass for Sweden if you use SJ trains.

@Camilo. @Mukhammad Can you please confirm that it is possible to use the OCP Sweden on SJ trains to/from Copenhagen and Oslo.

Depends a bit on your planning what’s best, but if you’re thorough planners it might be the cheapest to just buy advance tickets. If you just doing CPH-Stockhol-Oslo-CPH you best buy ordinary advance ticket. The moment you plan to travel a bit more extensively a pass might be a better idea.

With a pass you’ll need to calculate an extra cost for seat reservations anyway.

Unfortunately. this is not possible with the Swedish country Pass. For this route, you would need a Global Pass or the Scandinavian Pass.

The Scandinavian Pass is only available for Eurailers and not for Interrailers. 

Have a nice day!
