Expenses of Scandinavian Trip?!

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a scandinavian trip for May 2012.

I know its an expensive place to visit, but there is a great blog that I recently found and the prices that the writer gives are really scaring me.

She says: "Norway is the MOST expensive place we have traveled. Whoa! To offset the cost of the trip, we knew we'd be packing our lunches and skimping on meals. ... How expensive could it be? Converting the currency to U.S. dollar ... a personal pizza was $50 - $65, a bowl of soup was $18 - $22, a hamburger was $30+ ... and we're not talking sit-down restaurants! I'm talking little quick-service establishments! "

My question, Are these prices accurate?? I haven't even gone yet and I'm suffering from sticker shock! We're still going but sounds like I'll lose weight on this trip.

BTW - The blog is great and worth a read:

Thanks in advance for the info.
