I've been planning this trip for quite some time now. Myself, my wife, my 9 year old daughter and my 7 year old son will be spending 3 weeks in Scandinavia next summer. Tentative dates are June 8 thru June 29. I'm really excited about this trip and have been putting most of my energy toward it lately. I've pretty much put the household on a spending freeze and told the Kids that they are getting passports for Christmas and not much else. I'm getting ready to spend about $3500 on airplane tickets in the next few weeks so I thought I'd throw this out there an see if anyone has some feedback. I'm hoping to get some recommendations from some of our northern members here too. We are not doing a whirlwind tour and trying to see everything we can possibly see. We want to have enough time to see a lot of the sights, but also have off days where we can hang out at the park, go out for coffee etc. Just relax and enjoy time together as a family. Planning on getting a Scandinavia train pass, and most if not all of our lodging will be AIRBNB. My plan is to do most of the cooking ourselves and do as little eating out in restaurants to save money. We will generally be relying on public transit in cities and am looking at getting city passes for transit and museums/sights. I may rent a car in Gothenburg so we can drive up the coast a bit but not sure yet. Itinerary as it stands now. Travel dates June 8 - June 29. Land in Oslo. Spend 3 Nights in Oslo Take train from Oslo to Bergen Spend 2 nights in Bergen. Take train from Bergen to Gothenburg. Spend 5 nights in Gothenburg. Take train from Gothenburg to Stockholm, then board ferry to Helsinki. Would love some input on the ferry if anyone has any. It's a chance to go to Helsinki for a day, and a chance to travel through the Stockholm Archipelago. I'm still on the fence about this but am currently planning on it. We are planning on doing the out and back from Stockholm to Helsinki. Board in the afternoon, travel overnight, disembark in Helsinki in the morning, then board again in the evening and travel back to Stockholm. Spend 6 nights in Stockholm. We are timing our stay in Stockholm to coincide with Midsummer. Then we will fly to Reykjavik and spend 2 nights. I think all we will really do in Iceland is the Blue Lagoon. We will essentially be on our way back to Denver and will probably be pretty fried, so a good soak in the hot springs will be just the ticket.
