Every year thousands of travelers choose to travel to Scandinavia to explore Sweden and Denmark, and many prefer to combine both countries in one single trip. One of the smartest ways to make your way from Stockholm to Copenhagen is by hopping on a high-speed SJ train.

The direct Stockholm to Copenhagen train, operated by the Swedish Rail, runs on a very scenic route and covers the distance between the capital of Sweden and the capital of Denmark in about 5 hours. Among the greatest benefits of traveling on the train is that it departs from and arrives at the Central Stations, located right in the city centers, therefore, there's no need to spend extra time on going to the outskirts of town to the airports nor to spend twice as many hours for the connection by bus.

SJ bullet trains are modern, fast, have modern onboard amenities and several travel classes to select from. Moreover, there are about 6 departures every day for the convenience of travelers.
