Little by little, travel by train across the continent is becoming an easier way to travel. Seen by many as a simpler – and often more sustainable – alternative to flying, this can only be good thing.
Just last week, we told you about new plans for Eurostar to add a plethora of new destinations to their roster, and last year saw a new proposal to connect more than 40 European cities by sleeper train.
Well, one new sleeper journey has arrived, and it’ll let you travel from London to Stockholm in 24 hours – and even stop off at Copenhagen on the way! Plus, SJ – the company running the new route – is using completely renewable energy and encouraging drivers to not freewheel, meaning to not use their engines to drive forwards.
A EuroNight service from SJ is carrying out the journey from Hamburg to Stockholm, offering a comfortable ride with duvets, pillows, and breakfast served in the morning.
While we don’t have a direct service from London, the journey to Stockholm by train is far simpler than before. The Eurostar will handle your journey to Brussels (or perhaps Germany in the future), then you’ll jump on train to Hamburg before checking into the brand new sleeper train. All-in-all, the journey will take around a day, but that, of course, includes a luxurious kip before waking up to the Scandinavian scenery. Travellers dreaming of this journey will be able to carry it out from September 1.
Prices for the route have not yet been revealed, but you can keep your eyes peeled here for further updates.
