3 weeks driving trip in May end in Scandinavia (mainly Norway)

Jump to last reply

Background - I and my wife along with my 10 year old daughter would be travelling to Scandinavia (mainly Norway). We plan to drive most of the time - except fro catching a flight from Stockholm to Tromso and from Tromso to Alesund. On the ground we will always have a car.

We love natural scenery, I love photography, old buildings, lighthouses etc. A bit of interesting museums but not that much into big city scene and nightlife. We like short easy hikes - 1 to 3 hours, nothing very difficult.

The tentative itinerary is given below followed by a list of questions.

I have tried to cover many "national Tourist routes in Norway.

So - please tear away at this itinerary and please offer suggestions:

1. Interesting routes to take
2. Interesting detours for viewpoints, farms, lighthouses etc
3. Suggestions for short walks/hikes
4. Suggestions for hotels (mid to high end) and restaurants/stopover points

Thank you very much for your time and help!
