Hiking Trip Plus Some Culture - 5-7 days where?

Jump to last reply

Planning on taking a trip on Iceland Air in early September. I've been wanting to spend a few days in Iceland for a while, and Iceland Air's stopover deal seems like the perfect way to combine Iceland with a longer Europe trip. I'm looking for help to decide which mainland Europe destination to spend 5-7 nights near. We're an active couple in our late 20s looking for day hiking trips (not overnight camping/carrying our luggage) from 1-2 bases within reasonable driving distance from the airport. Also open to public transit. We're interested in any hikes that fit people can do in a day w/o equipment, and are especially interested in stellar views. Any nearby towns of cultural significance beyond the hiking would be an added bonus, but not necessary for this trip. Any suggestions which airport to fly into and where to go for our next trip??? Could also do an open jaw trip if it makes sense.

Available airports include:
Bergen (Norway)
Stavanger (Norway)
Trondheim (Norway)
Oslo (Norway)
Gothenburg (Sweden)
Stockholm (Sweden)
Helsinki (Finland)
Geneva (Switzerland)
Zurich (Switzerland)
