Going to Denmark, Norway – what is there to see?

Jump to last reply

In 2 weeks we are going to Scandinavia for the first time. Trying to get ready for the trip, so after reading Fodor’s posts we got this far.

We know the languages are different, so can we get by with English only (assuming Russian is useless there). If we speak loud and slow, they’ll get it, huh?

We will have a stack of cards. Credit and ATM cards that is. But for small things, like to tip the pilot, we’ll need cash. Do they accept real money there? Or should we get some Scandic dollars?

We know about bidets – no questions there. We are used to doing quick laundry on our trips.

They still have kings and queens there – so we worry that we have USSR as our birth country in our passports. Will we even be allowed in? We don’t want to cause an international scandal.

About the Vikings. We’ll be there in August, not in September, is it still dangerous? I cannot find a single rental place for horned helmets, will the local tourist offices help?

Will it be cold above the Arctic Circle? How do you keep your photo phingers warm? And when do they turn on the Aurora Borealis? Or do we need to climb the Eiffel tower to see it?

Anything else you have to add? Tuck you in advance!
