We took the overnight train (NSB Sove) from Bergen to Oslo S. Barely noticed when we were moving or at a station stop. Great way to get to a new location, with a good night sleep for less than a hotel!

You can add comfort section for a low Price on your booking. But honestly there isn't too much of a difference any more. Except the table in front of your Seat and free Coffee + (Norwegian) newspapers.
