Help Planning Denmark Sweden Norway trip

Jump to last reply

For our 40th anniversary next year, my husband and I decided to plan a trip to Scandinavia (well, we decided that I would plan the trip). I know that covers a lot of ground, so I've done a lot of reading on the forums and looked at some trip reports, and got a travel book on Scandinavia in general. I also looked at some group trips, but we have never been group travel people and they just didn't appeal.

I've figured that July is a good target time, and that narrowing to just (just!) Denmark Sweden and Norway is a good place to start. I know I want to include Copenhagen Stockholm Bergen and Oslo, but I also want some countryside and other places. I read about Norway in a Nutshell and that is appealing. I'm figuring something less than 3 weeks. This is what I know.

What I don't know is what kind of itinerary to lay out and how to manage transportation between a car, trains, ferries and maybe a small fjord cruise. Also, I could use some useful planning websites, everything seems geared to a particular country, not to navigating between and planning an overall itinerary. The same with books. I saw there are some Scandinavian travel agents who put together trips, I wonder if anyone has tried having someone help just get oriented and put together a plan and then I'll deal with the details.

For me, nailing down an itinerary and figuring out transportation options is the hardest part, once I have that backbone, I can merrily go ahead with my planning. I'd appreciate any help in getting unstuck.

Oh, and I know this will be an expensive trip, that's the one constant in everything I've read. But it's a big anniversary and I think we can plan a fabulous trip.

Thanks as always,
Alice
