Driving from Copenhagen to Oslo and/or Oslo to Stockholm

I'll be in Copenhagen, Oslo, and Stockholm at the end of August with my Mom. We were wondering if it is a nice, interesting, pretty drive from either Copenhagen to Oslo or from Oslo to Stockholm. I love to drive but only if there are things to do along the way, places to stop etc.

I heard the ferry from Copenhagen to Oslo is nice - is it clean/deluxe? My Mom won't go if it's too cheap (she's not a backpacker - she's more of a business class type).

Any help would be welcome.

The ferry from Copenhagen to Oslo is like a cruise. You can choose between different cabin categories, including luxury suites.


You get some impressions here:


Driving time from Oslo to Stockholm is about 6:30. You will see forests, lakes (a lot) and meadows. Should be quite agreeable.

Personally I find the drive from Oslo to Stockholm quite boring. The first part, from Oslo to Karlstad is nice and scenic but the part from Karlstad to Stockholm is, in my opinion, nothing but boring. And it is a long drive. Places worth stoping at en route are Örebro and Mariefred. I would fly Oslo - Stockholm.

Oslo - Karlstad approx 220 kms (3 hours)
Karlstad - Örebro 120 kms (1 hour 30 minutes)
Örebro - Mariefred 140 kms (1 hour 45 minutes)
Mariefred - Stockholm 70 kms (1 hour)
