It's really happening! Time to get planning!

Jump to last reply

Hi again everyone! The Scandinavia trip is officially happening now! The airfares have been booked!

The dates are June 1st - June 18th 2012

The basic itenerary is as follows:

May 30th, fly from NZ to Hong Kong, fly Hong Kong to Frankfurt, fly Frankfurt to Helsinki
June 1st, 1am, Arrive Helsinki.
June 2nd-June 6th, Helsinki ( My father is at a conference from the 4th )
June 7th, Tallin ( conference excursion )
June 8-10, Stockholm ( conference excursion, overnight ferry from Helsinki )
June 11-18, Copenhagen and Denmark

It would be really wonderful if anyone knows of any apartments in Helsinki that are close to the Sybelius Hall ( that's where the conference is being held ) that have two bedrooms, a washing machine, free wifi, and are reasonably priced?

Also, my mini-itinerary for Denmark includes:

Two days in Copenhagen ( one of which will include Frederiksborg Palace )
A day in Roskilde ( Viking Ship Museum, Cathedral, Medieval Water Mill )
A day in Lejre ( Living History Outdoor Museum )
A day visiting the Viking Ring Fort and Longhouse at Trelleborg
A day trip out to the Island of Bornholm ( Round Churches, Quaint Fishing Villages )

Any suggestions regarding the logistics of any of these day trips would be most helpful! I'm not sure whether to go with the Visitor Center tour out to Bornholm or just go with the Bornholmbussen self-organized trip. Also, does anyone think the village of Kerteminde worth visiting?
