Itinerary Advice: Denmark, Norway, Sweden

Jump to last reply

I am just getting started on planning my family's trip this summer...and a little bit later than I would like, too! Here are the basics: we are a family of five, kids aged from 9 to 18. We will be traveling from June 24 to July 8 and flying into Denmark and out of Stockholm. I think we have a pretty solid itinerary, but some advice from those who have done this route before would be really helpful. I will just note, I am worried about our travel schedule in Norway, which is busier than we we would like. I have an extra day right now in Stockholm (in my opinion in any case) to put somewhere.

When we are in Denmark, we are considering a trip to Aalborg, which is where my family is from -- but outside of that, I do not know if this town is really worth visiting (I am not in touch with any relatives there). And if we went there, would it be better to take a ferry from that area to Oslo? I had also considered the island of Aero in Denmark or one of the islands on in Sweden for a night, but I have take that out due to time. Does anyone think this is a mistake?

So here it is:

6/24 Arrive Copenhagen
6/25 - 6/28 CPH/Denmark
6/28 Overnight Ferry to Oslo
6/29 - 7/1 Oslo
7/1 Train from Oslo for Norway in a Nutshell trip to Flåm, Ferry to Balestrand, Overnight at the Kviknes Hotel.
7/2 Ferry to Bergen
7/4 Bergen to Stockholm
7/8 Depart Stockholm for US

I have a pretty good sense of activities in Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm. We will hit a lot of the normal sites. But we could add a day in Balestrand to do some hiking or other activities in this area. Any advice on that?

This board is always very helpful, so thanks for any advice.
