3 weeks in Norway and Sweden. Comments, advice please!

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (I'm 68 and he's 70) started planning a maximum 3 week trip to Norway and Sweden. And possibly also Iceland.

I was thinking that it might be nice to just leave from Stockholm and go directly home. What do you think of having the fjord trip first and ending in Stockholm? Should I flip it? I do like the idea of starting more rural and ending in a metropolis. It makes getting home less of a shock. :-)

And do I have enough or too many days in each location? This is our first trip to this area and my heritage is Swedish so we're really looking forward to it!

We're going late May or early June 2017.
