In my opinion there's too much ground in too little time, so I'd suggest your second option, and even that would be barely possible. Berlin especially is much too short, it wouldn't be worth going there for just 1 day (you could grab 1 day from Amsterdam as Berlin is a lot bigger, although there's no pretty canals).

To make it much easier you should take a few more days off ;)

Also, travel in general isn't cheap in Europe so if you're on a very tight budget you'll get more value for money if you stay longer in each place.

Hope that helps,

I would get rid of the one-nighters for sure. 1 day in Berlin and Stockholm just don't make sense, as you will almost be spending more time getting there, then you have time to spend in the city itself.

You can have time in London, Paris and Amsterdam, before travelling to Norway. If you have a little bit more time you can make 1 or 2 day stops in Brugges, Hamburg, and Copenhagen along the way. You could also travel to Berlin from Amsterdam (although I think the nighttrain to Berlin, is in fact a normal train to Brussels, and a nighttrain from there), and take a flight from Berlin to Oslo (or another place in Norway.)
