Mid-Night sun in Scandinavia

Jump to last reply

We are planning a visit to Scandinavia this summer for 2 weeks. We are young couple and like to make the most of our trip as far as sightseeing is concerned.

Among other things this region has to offer - we are interested in seeing the Norway fjords and the mid-night sun.

We only have 2 weeks and have on the list the following places to see on our list.

Copenhagen,Oslo, Stolkhom, Helsinki & Bergen in Norway to see the fjords.

I HAVE 2 questions:

1. From what I have read to see the mid-night sun we need to travel to the northmost point in Europe at NorthCape. Do you recommend traveling up north to experience the mid-night sun? Is it a must to do or it’s okay to skip as other places also have long summer days and sun is shining till late in the day anyways. Is it really cold up-north even in summer?

2. Is there any other must places to visit in Scandinavia other than the big cities? From our itinerary above we are only touching big cities other than Bergen. Do you recommend going to other places like Upsala or country side in Sweeden or any other must attraction in Scandinavia?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
