LOL. if you wanna relax and chill with friends its not too bad if not i'd just recommend you take finnair/ryanair over. I believe the ship stops over at Estonia or something too

Feasible ?

My plan :
Arrive Stockholm stay 1 night
train to Copenhagen stay 1 night
Fly from Copenhagen to Bergen for ‘Norway in a nut shell’
then Oslo to Lofoten 2- 3 nights
Lofoten fly back to Stockholm then Singapore

Ah its feasible but its gonna be a bit rush. I think at the bare minimum you also need 2 nights in each of the major cities

No need to change currency. Scandinavian countries are very credit card friendly. I don't see anyone using cash over there.

In January the sunlight hours are still short, may face heavy snow. Driving is ok as there are snow chains. Driving in snow have to be a lot of more careful (e.g. braking distance turning angle etc) oh and norway drives on opposite side as Singapore.

You drove in winter before?

just note that northern lights is see heng sway one. not say you want to see it will appear. so will be good to have more opportunities to catch the lights. besides, different nights will have different pattern and strength of lights.
